Country Omelet

2 cups potatoes, diced
1/2 cup onion, diced
8 - 10 strips bacon
8 eggs
2 Tbl. milk
Salt & Pepper to taste

In a large skillet fry bacon until crispy. Remove and pour grease from pan but don't wipe clean. Fry potatoes and onions in bacon pan until done and browned. (Add just a little bacon grease if needed for cooking potatoes.) Add bacon and mix with potatoes. Remove skillet from heat. In a bowl beat eggs, milk and salt & pepper until blended. Pour over mixture in skillet and cover. Place over med. heat burner. Tilt pan to let egg mixture run down onto the hot skillet. Remove cover occasionally and fold egg mixture over around edges to allow more of the liquid to run onto the hot skillet. When omelet becomes puffy around the edges and center is set, gently slide onto plates. Serves 6-8.

Changes - Use ham or sausage instead of bacon. If using ham you will have to add a little cooking oil for cooking the potatoes. And of course, you can add cheese. When I do this, I add during the last 5 minutes of cooking to allow the cheese to melt and run into the omelet.
