Hearty One Pan Breakfast

Recipe by  

"Great for when you have a crowd for breakfast. Very hardy and filling, big boys and little boys just love it! I usually do all the prep work the night before so very little effort is needed in the morning. We like to serve it with hot French bread."

I have a very similar recipe however it calls for cubed hashbrown potatoes, and I actually use the O'brien version with the pepper and onion in it already (do not use the tomatoes). We have this breakfast almost everytime we go camping in the summer. The kids and my husband love it and it is a great way to start the day.

To be Honest, This had to be the worst thing I ever made my kids eat. It was horrible. I did everything perfectly. I was extremely disapointed.

I did not have any bacon on hand, so I made a vegetarian version of this recipe. I was skeptical about adding garlic at first, but I ended up adding two cloves and thought it added a fantastic flavor! I also added some mushrooms and red pepper instead of green and used red potatoes and left the skins on. I whisked the eggs and seasoned with salt and pepper before pouring on top of the sauteed veggie mix. Then I added the cheese to the top and put the lid on the skillet until it melted. It was a tasty and filling breakfast!

Very good! I didn't use tomatoes and instead of cracking the egges in the skillet, I beat them first with a little milk and poured overall, cooking until they had set. My boyfriend added some salsa but I liked them as they were. Great with the strawberry smoothie we had to accompany this! Thank you DD!

I didn't have a deep skillet or bacon and used pork sausage and a 5qt.dutch oven - it was wonderful !!

Very, very good! I did make some changes to better suit our taste such as adding more bacon, adding mushrooms, and decreasing the amount of tomatoes. Overall, a great base recipe with lots of possibilities! thanks!

I made this last weekend and I'm going to make it again this weekend. The ingredients were easy to find (I live in Korea and it's sometimes difficult to find things listed in recipes), making the breakfast was super easy, and my wife loved it!
