Cheesy, potato-y goodness
My mom's boyfriend from ages ago taught me this, and while he is long gone, this recipe has stuck around.

Perfect with left over mashed potatoes, this is really easy to put together, and to make many. Most don't think this will be very tasty until they taste it :)

    While the eggs are cooking in the pan, grate a bit of cheese. Cheddar works best, but I wasn't sure how old mine was o_O So I just made do with some Parmesan.

    Add as much or as little cheese as you want. This is about... 1/2 a cup? Dunno, just grate as much as you want to eat XD
