Cheesy bacon breakfast Skillet


Okay I’m not going to lie… this breakfast skillet recipe is by no means healthy. Bacon… eggs…cheese. Definitely breaking any kind of diet once you step in those grounds! BUT I have to tell you, this recipe is so so good.  It’s the perfect breakfast skillet for Christmas, camping, Fathers day, birthdays… or if you’re just feeling tired and want an easy dinner. Definitely not something you want to eat every day… but hey why not break the rules every once and awhile?!



Breakfast Skillet


  • 1 pkg. hash browns
  • 6 pieces of bacon
  • 6 –7 eggs
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp pepper
  • 1 cup of cheese


Cook bacon in frying pan until crisp on medium heat. Set aside and crumble once cooled. Leave the bacon grease in the pan and cook hash browns according to package. Once they are lightly browned crack the eggs on top of the hash browns. After a couple of minutes cut the dish into 4 pieces and flip over (it’s kind of like making an omelet). Then top with shredded cheese, seasonings and bacon. Serve once cheese is melted. mmm

This meal is perfect for the men in your life. They will thank you!!

Now I’m sad I’m eating cherrios… what do you usually eat for breakfast?!

    Yumm that looks and sounds so good! I love all those notsogoodforyou breakfast foods. Unfortunately I eat boring healthy breakfast (egg whites & cooked spinach, oatmeal, protein shake, kashi cereal, or just a bowl of fruit). I do however condone eating this kind of stuff every once in awhile ;) I’m definitely going to try this come November when I can eat it :)

    Great pic, Jamie! Davis and Gavin would go nuts over it! I’ll have to try making it, although I am THE WORST egg cooker ever. seriously. {probably doesn’t help that i hate the smell of them!} We are boring breakfast eaters too, except for Fridays. On most Fridays, we make pancakes with homemade syrup. :)
    happy crafting,

    A couple quick questions, how many does this feed and do you scramble the eggs before adding them?


    • Jamielyn replied on December 26th, 2012 at 12:07 pm

      Hi Jennifer! I wisk the eggs a little before adding them, but not very much. It will feed about 6 people.
