This is best if you have a physically demanding day ahead of you.

Dice up a pound of thick bacon, cook in cast iron skillet on medium.
In the mean time dice up a medium sized onion, 3 large cloves of garlic and 7 large potatoes.

When bacon bits are crispy remove the bacon leaving the bacon grease.
Toss in onions and garlic, saute until onions become translucent, turn heat down to medium low.
Add diced potatoes, salt and pepper to taste, continue to turn potatoes often till almost done then mix in the bacon and cook another 10 minutes.

Did you mean "a demanding day for you and several of your close friends?" That is a ton of food. Used to so something similar, on a smaller scale, and scrambled in 2 eggs.
That's multiple meals, when I was in my 20s I could have possibly eaten all of that in one sitting but now I can eat about an eighth.

Since I'm doing cardio rehab after having a stent put in about a month ago kje54, what you posted is almost like food porn. I don't think my cardiologist would approve. I year ago I would have had at it though.

I break it down into portions which roughly equate to the size of one's closed fist and spread it's comsumption out over a week. I shave about a quarter of that off because my hands are huge.
I also don't cook like that too often any more, I eat a lot of soups, veggies and salads these days. For deserts I'll have fruit or fruit smoothies.

Oh yeah, 50 years ago that was one breakfast, now it would be about five or six, maybe more. I would like to try it using new, potatoes, more onions and a couple of poached eggs on top.

Forget waiting for breakfast. This would be great along side a good, juicy hamburger for lunch.

Thanks for the recipe.

Pretty close to my morning b'fast. 1/2 pound jowl, small spud, 1 onion, 2 eggs warm from the chicken house, 2 biscuits, white gravy, black coffee. Every day. Jowl grease fries everything, goes over bassett hound;'s dry food. (He's on meds, too.)

The horned toad says we should go to Mexico.
The hardest part of that recipe is getting the potatoes to cook so they are no longer hard without burning the onions. The shortcut is to boil the potatoes the night before. Slice the cold potatoes the next morning 3/8 thick, then dice. Now, when you add the potatoes, they only have to brown. ;)
You'll get to the table in half the time.
