This 4 layer breakfast skillet is like having and entire breakfast buffet in one dish. A hash-brown base is loaded with scrambled eggs, ham, and cheese. The best part though: you can customize it any way you like, with anything you like. I’m going to be mixing up my next one by adding some bacon onions, peppers, and mushrooms!
I’m going step by step today so that you can see just how easy it is! Please (pleeeeaaaassseee) don’t judge how disgustingly dirty my cooktop is… I promise, I’ve since cleaned it, it’s sparkling now… but there was a solid month there where I just did not give a crap.
First up, you fire up the heat and grease your skillet. Once it’s nice and hot you add the shredded potatoes and press them down with a spatula. If you’re in the US you can actually buy frozen shredded potatoes and save yourself this step – I’m not so lucky in Canada.
Because I like my potatoes extra crispy, once the bottom is browned I flip them in sections then press it back down to crisp up the other side. An unnecessary step, but a delicious one. Once you “flip” the potatoes, just give them a generous hit of salt and pepper, then toss on the scrambled eggs.
Then the ham, or bacon, or whatever else you want to use (onions, peppers, mushrooms). I know, you can see how awesome this is getting now!
Cheese, delicious cheese! This is the amount I put on to take a picture. Then I shamelessly added another giant handful because I could.
And then THIS came out of the oven, and all was right in my world. Breakfast skillets are the new Bieber… you don’t want to like it, but you won’t be able to help yourself. That damn apology album… so frigging catchy.
It’s like an entire breakfast buffet jumped into my skillet and came out sliceable.
That’s right – I said sliceable. You know what that translates to: My kids believing that it was breakfast pizza and eating it, eggs and all, which is basically akin to winning the lottery in this house.
I’m not trying to pressure you, never. But if you don’t make this the image of it may haunt you for the rest of your life.
