Country Skillet Breakfast - mix it, cook it, serve it, eat it - nothing fancy, just delicious!

Put it in the skillet, mix it up, cook it, serve it, and eat it! Oh yum!
1/4 cup butter
5 medium potatoes, peeled, cooked, chopped, and cooled
1 large yellow onion, diced
6 slices bacon, cut into 1-1/2 inch slices, cooked, and drained
1/2 teaspoon sea salt, or to taste
1/2 teaspoon fresh ground black pepper, or to taste
8 - 9 large eggs
2 - 3 tablespoons whipping cream
3/4 cup grated sharp cheddar cheese    
1/4 cup chopped green onions
Melt butter in a 10 or 12-inch iron skillet over medium heat; add potatoes and cook tossing gently until well golden brown and semi-crispy. Add onions to the skillet; cook 2 - 3 minutes (adding more butter if needed); add the bacon; give it a good stir and remove from heat while you get the eggs ready. In a bowl, whisk the eggs with whipping cream; season with salt and black pepper; pour the egg mixture on top of potato mixture, tipping the skillet so egg is distributed to the edges. Return to heat; stir gently until the eggs are set. Sprinkle with the cheese; cover and allow the cheese to melt. Add chopped green onions. Serve at once. NOTE: Add sliced jalapeƱos, mushrooms, or green pepper if you like. You can make it your own to suit your taste.
