An Italian-Style Breakfast skillet is a hearty and delicious combination of red-skinned potatoes, sunny-side-up eggs, onions, sweet mini peppers, baby Bella mushrooms, tomatoes, and fresh spinach, and seasoned with Italian herbs, kosher salt, and freshly ground pepper all in one cast-iron skillet.

Breakfast recipes shouldn’t be so difficult first thing in the morning. It should be a simple task, easy to clean up, and delicious to eat. This Italian Style Breakfast skillet fits the simple and easy part without skimping ingredients.


Italian-Style Breakfast SkilletIt’s in my nature to be a big grouch ball in the morning if I wake up on the wrong side of the bed. Look out, and it’s about to hit the fan. The last thing I want to do is be stuck in the kitchen, slaving over a hot stove and cleaning a giant mess.

A few years ago, I happily jumped on the one skillet bandwagon with several recipes.  It’s my way of boycotting heavy kitchen duties. This recipe has been one of my favorite way to exercise my right to more morning free time.
