Breakfast Skillets

I don’t know about you, but I love all kinds of breakfast food. I have found that if I eat a hearty breakfast (including protein and vegetables) I’m not starving within a couple of hours. It’s easy to add your favorite veggies, meat, cheese, and seasonings.

Breakfast skillets provide you options:

  • A great way to use up some of those leftover fresh veggies
  • They are a great way to get the kiddos to eat more veggies
  • Perfect for whenever you have an overnight guest
  • You can make these skillets for any meal of the day
  • The skillets can easily be modified to be gluten-free, dairy-free, soy-free, low-carb, vegan, vegetarian or paleo

Cast-Iron Skillets

For my breakfast skillets, I greased two 9 inch mini cast iron skillets and covered the bottom of each with thawed and uncooked gluten-free hash browns. If you are on a low-carb diet you can easily skip this step.

I then placed gluten-free sausage on top of the hash browns.

Next, I added chopped red peppers, tomatoes, onions, spinach and chopped ham to the breakfast skillets. I added extra tomatoes and spinach and omitted the onion and used less cheese on mine.

For the next step, I whisked together 8 large cracked eggs, 1/2 cup milk and a dash of salt and pepper into a mixing bowl. I poured half of the mixture over one of the ingredients in one skillet and the remaining egg mixture over the other skillet.

I topped each skillet off with some shredded cheddar and plopped them into my preheated oven and baked them at 350 degrees F for approximately 30 – 35 minutes.

Notice the Heavy Duty Non-Stick Oven Liner? I always use this in my oven to catch any spills when my creations are baking. It works like a gem and it’s so easy to clean and prevents you from having to clean your oven so much. Simply wipe it off with a dishcloth or sponge. (Think stocking stuffer!)

These breakfast skillets are super filling and neither my husband nor I could eat the whole thing in one sitting. We ate what we wanted, placed the leftovers in a glass container with a lid and heated it up the next morning for breakfast. If you and your sweetie like the exact same ingredients, you could easily share one-skillet between the two of you.

I love the layers of yummy hash browns, meat, veggies, and cheese. 


Breakfast skillets are great for overnight guests too. Allow your guests to create their own personalized skillet by supplying a variety of ingredients. 

Have fun creating your very own personalized breakfast skillet!

    My skillet is 12" should I just adjust the cooking time?

      Hi Sue, Yes, you will probably need to adjust your cooking time by a few minutes. Since your skillet is larger than what I used, you will probably need to bake your breakfast skillet a little bit longer. You can check to see if it's finished baking by inserting a table knife in the center and if the eggs are "set" and not runny, then it's finished. Thanks for stopping by! Enjoy! Linda

    I am insanely excited about this! I don't happen to own the small skillets used for this recipe, but any oven-safe dish should work. My dinnerware is oven-safe to 350. And that would create smaller portions. I don't enjoy eggs, so I'd use less on mine. Does this dish work well if assembled the night before, then baked in the morning?

      Hi Amy, I think it would be fine to assemble the breakfast skillets the night before. I've not tried that but, I think it should work fine. Thanks for dropping us a note. Have fun! Linda

      Hi Whitney, Yay! We hope that you enjoy these yummy breakfast skillets as much as we do. They really do come together quickly and make for a great breakfast. Have fun creating your own skillets! Linda

    I love eating breakfast for dinner. These look wonderfully healthy, and each family member could "tailor" theirs to fit their specific tastes. Beautiful photos as well:) My Profile

      Hi Seana, Thanks! Yes, these skillets lend themselves perfectly to being individualized so that each person can assembly their own. For instance, I like more veggies in my skillet, whereas my husband likes more meat in his. Mine also needs to be gluten-free, but his doesn't. It's definitely a win-win for us both! Thanks for stopping by! Have a wonderful day! Linda
