I got this from my father who use to make this often. My family likes it well enough that I make sure I will have leftover mashed potato.
I don't measure much so here it goes. I usually have about the size of a margerine bowl of potatoes. I use a quarter stick of butter or margerine and melt it in a skillet. I microwave potatoes one minute and then add to melted butter.
I mix the butter into the potatoes and let it get real hot but you have to watch because they love to stick to my pan. I break potatoes up as scrambled eggs.
In a small bowl, beat 3 large eggs. When potatoes is nice and hot, dump beaten eggs into it. Keep stirring as making scrabled eggs making sure that all of your potato is covered in egg.
You want a light tint of brown and then you are done. Serve with your choice of meat or it can very well stand alone.. This is usually a breakfast dish but we eat it whenever but it is a meal.
