It’s Monday! Which means we’ve got another brand new 6 Ingredient Supper for you today!
I couldn’t be more excited to share this easy Breakfast Skillet with you today.
Breakfast is our favorite meal of the day, especially when it’s breakfast for dinner.
We just have more time to cook a great breakfast at dinnertime, and more time to enjoy it without having to rush the kids out the door to school.
And what’s not to love?
This Breakfast Skillet is loaded with protein, we’ve swapped the traditional bacon for ham to lighten things up, potatoes add a good amount of fiber and green onions and cheddar cheese add so much flavor (and, I mean, gooey cheese).
I can rarely resist ordering a breakfast skillet at restaurants where they serve all day breakfast (really, the best restaurants!), but now you know I’ll be making them at home allllll the time!
P.S. This is also a great camping recipe, cooked in cast iron over the fire!
Variations on this Breakfast Skillet recipe:
- You can make this breakfast skillet dairy free by omitting the cheese or swapping for non-dairy cheese
- This breakfast skillet is naturally gluten-free, just be sure to double check all of your ingredients
- You can make this breakfast skillet vegetarian by swapping the ham for extra veggies — mushrooms, spinach, additional peppers — whatever you like in your omelettes is great in here too!
- You can keep the meat and bump up the veggies just because! Spinach is one of our favorites to add in because no one really notices it and it adds a ton of nutritional value.
- Swap the ham for bacon (cooked, or cook first) or breakfast sausage (again cooked, or cook it first in the pan).
How to prep this Breakfast Skillet ahead:
There are lots of ways you can prep this Breakfast Skillet ahead to make life easier on busy days!
- Chop the ham, peppers, and onions in advance and store in the refrigerator up to a couple days.
- Shred the cheese or buy a bag of pre-shredded cheese.
- You can also cook this breakfast skillet completely and then reheat if you are using only scrambled eggs. If you prefer your eggs sunny side up, cook everything else in the skillet, then when you’re ready to serve, reheat on the stove until hot and add your eggs.
Unfortunately cut potatoes do not store well, so please do not prep those in advance.
