How To Make a Potato Skillet
You’ll love how quick and easy this breakfast recipe is!
- Potatoes: This delicious breakfast recipe starts with the potatoes! I like to make my potato skillet with baby potatoes, but regular potatoes or even sweet potatoes will also work well! The flavor of the baby potatoes is sweeter than regular potatoes and they’re just more fun to use!
- In my video recipe, I used raw potatoes and cooked them from scratch. For a quicker version of this recipe, use pre-cooked potatoes. Just boil them in salted water until fork tender, then cool slightly and use in the recipe.
- While the potatoes are pan-searing and cooking, I prepare the remaining ingredients in a separate pan. It’s all about the flavor with this dish! I load it up with tons of onion, sweet bell pepper, sausage and mushrooms. Sauté the ingredients until tender and cooked. And, I add two secret ingredients that add phenomenal flavor: Worcestershire sauce and maple syrup! The sauce and syrup combined with everything else is like a taste of heaven!
Adding Eggs to the Skillet
Once the potatoes are cooked and tender, transfer them into the pan with the sausage and peppers and mix all the ingredients together. Next, make small wells for the eggs. Drop the eggs into wells, cover the pan with a tight fitting lid and cook over low heat until the egg whites are set. I like my eggs on the soft side but feel free to cook them until they’re well done. Serve the potatoes with additional maple syrup or ketchup.
