These cold, snowy winter days have me craving a taste from home.
Fry up a few slices of diced, smoked, streaky bacon and half a diced onion with a drizzle of olive oil.
Cook until the onion starts to get translucent and the bacon gets a bit crispy. Then throw in some diced potatoes, the smaller the dice the quicker it will cook.
Whisk 4 eggs together with 4 tablespoons single creme, shake in a little dried basil, and add some fresh ground black pepper
Once the potatoes are almost cooked pour in the egg mixture and tip the pan around to make sure it gets in all the nooks and crannies.
Put a lid on for a few minutes and in the mean time grate some cheese (Emmental works nice as does feta or parmesan, what ever you've got on hand really)
Take lid off, sprinkle your cheese on top along with some chopped green onion
Once the cheese has melted and the eggs are cooked to your liking take off the heat and cut into four portions and serve. If you've got some salsa or chili sauce that would be a nice accompaniment.
