Slice bacon & onion into small pieces and brown in the bottom of the DO until onions are clear. Stir in the hash brown potatoes and cover; remove cover & stir occasionally to brown and heat potatoes (15-20 minutes) Scramble  eggs in a seperate container &  pour the mixture over the hash browns. Cover & cook until eggs start to set.(10 – 15 minutes) Sprinkle grated cheese over egg mixture, cover & continue heating until eggs are completely set and cheese is melted. Optional: cover cheese/egg mixture with a small jar (~ 1 cup) of SALSA. Cover and cook for an additional 3-5 minutes. Slice and server like quiche.

(Real men don’t eat quiche but I sure get lots of requests to cook up the Mountain Man.)

Be sure to cook up a good mountain man breakfast for your crew.

Cooking times will vary with the weather and your state of awake but its almost impossible to mess up.
