Diner-Style Dinner... Less the Fat and Calories

I am a big fan of eating traditional breakfast foods at dinner time.  For some reason, I find items such as pancakes, waffles, and eggs very comforting and love to use them in preparing homey meals. especially when the weather is wet and stormy.

I baked a few red potatoes a couple of days ago, to have them on hand and ready to use during this rainy, windy weather we are having right now.  Tonight I decided to heat them up with some eggs and make a tasty diner-style meal.... but without all the traditional diner-style fat!

You could add a bit of chopped onion or peppers if you like.  I used some spinach, but mostly for color.  I always keep a bag of real crumbled bacon on hand in the fridge.  It adds really nice flavor to so many dishes. 

You might also want to add a second egg to each plate, for another 2P+ each.  That would make a hearty meal, indeed.  And you could always have it for breakfast, if you like!
