  • 4    teaspoons   all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2   cups   milk
  • 8    ounces   sharp cheddar cheese, shredded (2 cups)
  • 3    pounds   russet potatoes, peeled and thinly sliced*
  • 1 1/2   cups   chopped fresh broccoli
  • 1    tablespoon   vegetable oil
  • 8      eggs
  • 2    tablespoons   milk
  • 6    slices  bacon, crisp-cooked, drained, and crumbled
  • 1    large  tomato, chopped
Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. In a medium saucepan cook onion in butter over medium heat for 4 minutes or until tender, stirring occasionally. Stir in flour, 1/2 tsp. salt, and 1/2 tsp. ground black pepper. Stir in milk; cook and stir until slightly thickened and bubbly. Stir in cheese until melted.
In a 3-quart baking dish, layer potatoes, then cheese sauce. Bake, covered, about 55 minutes, until potatoes are tender.
In a large skillet, cook broccoli in hot oil over medium heat for 5 minutes, until nearly tender, stirring frequently. In a large bowl, beat together eggs, water, 1/2 tsp. salt, and 1/4 tsp. ground black pepper. Pour over broccoli in skillet. Cook over medium heat, without stirring, until mixture begins to set on bottom and around edges. Using a spatula, lift and fold partially cooked egg so uncooked portion flows underneath. Cook 2 minutes more or until egg is cooked yet still moist. Spoon over potatoes. Top with bacon and chopped tomato. Serve immediately.
  • Quickly slice potatoes with a food processor or mandolin slicer.
