Steak with Potatoes and Eggs

Here's a dish my mother ate a lot when she was younger. Her family, like ours, made a staple out of steak with potatoes and eggs. The key to this recipe is that the potatoes are in the egg. It's almost like having steak and fries with scrambled eggs in with the fries.  You can eliminate the steak if you want a vegetarian meal, and serve the potato and eggs with a side salad. (Or you can serve it my favorite way, which is potato and eggs on crusty bread with mayo and black pepper.) It's out of this world and so easy and inexpensive because so few ingredients are required.  If you love steak and eggs, or you're just exhausted after a long week, this is a meal that is sure to please everyone. - Jill

What you'll need:
Steak, 1 per person. Use any type of steak you prefer. You can grill the steak if you like. We like how my grandpa cooked steak, which was to fry it in an iron skillet. My father always says that it was the best steak he's ever had.
Potatoes, 2 to every 1 egg (for a side dish with the steak). You will want to double this for the vegetarian meal without the steak.
Olive oil 
Salt and pepper

(Note: Even in a large skillet it's difficult to fit more than the 2 potatoes and the 1 egg in the skillet, so you may have to make several batches for more than 2 people)
Slice potatoes very thin and saute in olive oil in a large skillet.
When potatoes become golden brown, add 1 beaten egg and scramble.
Thats it! I told you it was easy!
Add salt and pepper to taste

Enjoy on a sandwich, as a light lunch with a side salad or along side a fried steak as we do in our family.
