1 lb bacon
1 lb ground beef
1 onion, diced
vegetable oil
3 or 4 potatoes (can be raw, baked, or boiled - if raw, it's going to take longer to cook obviously) and with my big family I double the potatoes, but not the meat. So you could probably split the meat for another meal if your family is small. (Freeze half and use it in quiche or easy bisquick pie or breakfast burritos. Of course no man is ever going to complain about too much meat.)

Chop bacon into small pieces (I like to do it while it's frozen, I just cut the whole pound into 1/2 inch wide pieces) and cook until crisp, remove and drain on paper towel. Remove most of the bacon grease and set aside, leaving a Tablespoon or two, saute onion. Add ground beef and brown or reheat. Remove to bowl with bacon bits. Add diced potatoes, add more bacon grease or vegetable oil, heat oil, then cook or reheat potatoes. When potatoes are cooked or heated, toss the bacon, ground beef, and onion back in to warm. Salt and pepper to taste! Delicious!!!

A man pleasin' meal. Serve by itself or, even better, with scrambled eggs, and toast. I always have to have ketchup on mine.

My grandma used to say that if your husband was going to be home and you hadn't started dinner yet, throw some onion and bacon in a pan. It will smell so good that they will wait without complaint. That's how we end up having this most of the time!
