     POTATO-PIE-1 - A brunch casserole with potatoes, eggs,
     bacon, and cheese

     This is a very easy brunch dish, similar to a fritatta in
     texture, but full of traditional breakfast ingredients.  The
     recipe comes from a cookbook published by the Contra Costa
     (California) Times newspaper, called "Tastes of the Times".

INGREDIENTS (Serves 4-6)
     1 lb      bacon, thick-sliced and lean
     1         onion
     1 lb      baking potatoes
     1/2 lb    cheddar cheese
     8         eggs

          (1)  Cut the bacon slices into square pieces.  Fry the
               pieces until well-cooked, then drain on paper

          (2)  Peel the potatoes, then grate them.  To prevent
               the grated potatoes from discoloring while you
               prepare the other ingredients, you can put them
               into a bowl of cold water.  When you're ready to
               use them, be sure to drain well and squeeze them

          (3)  Grate the cheese.  Mince the onion.

          (4)  Butter a 9x13 inch shallow baking dish.  Preheat
               the oven to 350 deg. F.

          (5)  Beat the eggs in a large bowl.  Add all the other
               ingredients and stir.  Pour the mixture into the
               baking dish and bake in the preheated oven for
               about 45 minutes, or until the eggs are cooked.
               Serve hot, warm or at room temperature.

     It really does make a difference if you use good meaty bacon
     for this.  I find the best bacon at my local butcher shop.

     You can prepare part of this ahead.  I think egg dishes are
     better if they haven't been refrigerated.  So if you want to
     work ahead, you can cook the bacon, grate the cheese and
     potatoes and mince the onion the night before.  Store all
     these things separately in the refrigerator, covering the
     potatoes with water.  Then in the morning just mix it all up
     and bake it.

     Difficulty: moderate (tedious).  Time: 30 minutes prepara-
     tion, 1 hour baking and cooling.  Precision: approximate
     measurement OK.
