Breakfast Upside Down Cake

Prep Time:
30 Min
Cook Time:
20 Min
Ready In:
50 Min
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 3 large baking potatoes, peeled and diced
  • 1/2 cup chopped red bell pepper
  • 2 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 10 slices bacon
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon milk
  • 1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese


  1. Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add potatoes, red bell pepper, garlic and onion, and cook, stirring occasionally until potatoes are tender. Cover the pan with a lid for faster cooking.
  2. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Line the bottom of an 8 or 9 inch cake pan with parchment paper. Set aside.
  3. Fry bacon in a skillet over medium heat, or cook in the microwave, until crisp. Drain, crumble and set aside. Sprinkle the cheese in the bottom of the prepared pan. Sprinkle bacon crumbles evenly over the cheese. Scoop the potato mixture into the pan so it is evenly distributed. Whisk together eggs and milk with a fork, and season with a little salt and pepper. Pour evenly over the food in the pan.
  4. Bake for 20 minutes in the preheated oven, just until the egg is set. Remove from the oven and run a knife around the outer edge. Flip onto a serving plate, and remove the parchment paper. Serve and enjoy.

*Now I do plan on making this, but I will reverse the order and not flip it out of the pan. Seems much easier to me that way. Start with potatoes on bottom, cover with egg mixture, then bacon, and last the cheese.

    I know, doesn’t it just sound GOOD! I’d have this for supper, then breakfast the next morning. I’m not really one to get up and cook in the morning. When I read the ingredients, it became a MUST HAVE!

    I have made something similar to this for contractors on job sites. I use all disposable pans, plates, utinsels and cups. I would bring a gallon of orange juice. It’s a great marketing “tool” when I pull up in the company van with a hot breakfast on a job site. They tend to remember things like this. 😉
