Italian Style Breakfast skillets are a hearty and delicious combination of red skinned potatoes, sunny side up eggs, onions, sweet mini peppers, baby Bella mushrooms, tomatoes, fresh spinach, and simply 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 to make, easy to clean up and delicious to eat. This Italian Style Breakfast skillet fits the simple and easy part without skimping on ingredients.

Italian Style Breakfast Skillet

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