Hearty Brunch Bowls

We decided to call these hearty brunch bowls but they work equally as well for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. Potatoes, bacon, and eggs are pretty much the trifecta of deliciousness. 
The Little Potato Company ran a recipe contest where they were looking for 30 minute meals using their little potatoes. I entered this recipe (didn't win but it's still fabulous). This recipe only takes about 15 - 20 minutes from start to finish. I'm all about quick, easy, inexpensive, and delicious meals. 
This recipe is for 1 serving but can easily be sized up for more people. 

Hearty Brunch Bowls

1 Tbsp BBQ sauce
1 Tbsp honey
1 Tbsp prepared mustard
1 tsp lemon juice
2 Tbsp mayo

(note - if you can't find Little Potato Company potatoes just use new potatoes)
2 pieces of bacon
1/4 cup green onions
1/4 cup smoked cheddar
1 egg
salt & pepper

Prepare sauce - whisk together BBQ sauce, honey, mustard, lemon juice, and mayo. Set aside. This can be made up to a few days ahead of time, if desired. 
Quarter enough potatoes to fill a serving bowl (you can also use a plate but a bowl is more fun, just sayin'). Place in a microwave safe container and microwave the potatoes for 5 minutes. 
While the potatoes are in the microwave, chop 2 pieces of bacon and cook in frying pan until crispy. Chop the green onions and shred the cheese. 
When potatoes come out of the microwave, place on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper. 

Top with the cooked bacon, green onions, and cheese. 

Broil in the oven just long enough to melt the cheese. 

While the potatoes are broiling, in the pan you cooked the bacon in, fry up an egg. I like to leave it sunny side up so the yolk can break and add a bit more sauciness. 
Assemble your bowl - Place your cheesy potatoes in a serving bowl. Drizzle as much sauce as you would like over the potatoes. 

Top with the fried egg. Add salt & pepper to taste. 

Dig in!

So fast and easy and tasty! 
I like to make up a good sized batch of the sauce as it goes really well with so many other things! (Burgers, chicken, fries, etc...) 
I might not have won the recipe contest but I did find a great go-to meal for when I am super busy and just don't have time to do any prep. Little Potato Company potatoes work great for quick meals like this one, but if you can't find them near you I would suggest using new potatoes or fingerling potatoes - they should work just as well!
