An easy breakfast skillet made with sweet potatoes, bacon, peppers, eggs, and mushrooms. All made in one pan in 30 minutes!
Every Saturday morning before going to the store for the week, I find myself with the same ingredients left in my refrigerator. A few eggs, mushrooms, peppers, bacon, potatoes, and an avocado on the verge of going bad.
Wasting food is one of my biggest pet peeves. HELLO there are so many people who would kill to have leftovers! I constantly have “extra” food in my fridge or pantry and am always looking for creative ways to use it before it expires.
That’s where this Easy One Pan Leftover Breakfast Skillet comes in.
It’s a one pan recipe, which is one of my favorite things to make. The clean up is easy, the preparation is easy, and you could literally eat this one right out of the pan if you’re in savage mode.
Sometimes I get lazy making breakfast on the weekends. It’s so easy to go out and grab a bacon, egg, and cheese bagel! But there’s nothing like a homemade breakfast skillet on a Saturday morning.
I’m all about an easy to make breakfast that doesn’t leave my kitchen a disaster. This leftover breakfast skillet is made with a few common refrigerator items, and only uses one pan!
For this recipe, you will need a 10″ cast iron pan. I prefer Lodge Cast Iron—their products are great quality and not too expensive. You can usually find them on sale, too!
