Breakfast Skillet | Bacon, Potatoes, Chive & Cheddar Egg Skillet

 On Saturday mornings we have a rotation of breakfast foods that we've been making for the last 4 years : pancakes, biscuit and gravy, french toast and waffles (a new addition to the rotation since we received a waffle iron for Christmas... in fact, it is been 80% waffles since we've received the waffle iron).  I wanted to shake up the old routine a bit - without going to the grocery store.  I had bacon, eggs and potatoes on hand, so I threw it in a skillet and the result was a fantastic change of pace to our Saturday breakfast ritual and took all of ten minutes. 

6 strips of bacon, diced
2 yukon gold or red potatoes, sliced
1/4 cup of diced onion
2 tablespoons of butter
8 eggs
1/4 cup of milk
sea salt & cracked pepper
2 tablespoons of fresh chives, chopped
1/4 cup of cheddar cheese, shredded

In a skillet, cook diced bacon, onion, butter & potatoes for 4-5 minutes until bacon renders the fat and the potatoes begin to soften.  In a bowl, whisk together eggs, milk, chives, salt and pepper.  Add eggs to the skillet and cook on medium high for 5 minutes until the eggs are done.  Top with cheddar cheese.  Serve in wedges. 


  1. Random question. I love ticking, hence I love your towels. Where did you get them?

  2. I love Saturday breakfast and this looks like a winner.

  3. looking delicious and spicy

  4. So going to make this the next day off I have. And, I'm soooo not a Martha, def a Mary. But this looks too good to pass up giving it a try.

    I know my comment is late, but I wanted to let you know we've made this three times in three weeks for dinner. My husband LOVES it! Such an easy, filling, one dish supper when you're tired after work.
