In a large skillet, over medium high heat, cook the bacon and then drain on a paper towel. Drain the grease from the skillet, leaving just a teaspoon or two in the pan. Add the onion to the pan and cook for a few minutes, until it has softened.
Add the potatoes to the skillet, season with 1 teaspoon salt and 1/2 teaspoon pepper and then stir. Press into the bottom of the pan and let cook undisturbed for 5-6 minutes. Stir and repeat 2-3 times until the potatoes are soft and slightly crispy and the onions are browned and crisp on the edges.
Add the peppers to the skillet, stir and cook a minute or two, until they start to soften. Add the mushrooms, stir and season with the remaining salt and pepper to taste. Cook until the mushrooms are tender and then serve topped with a soft egg if desired. Enjoy!
