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
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.
A delicious and hearty breakfast.

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!
