This amazing Breakfast Skillet recipe is not only easy to make, but is delicious too.  With four children in the house this weekend, we figured this would make for a tasty meal and one that should make everyone happy.  It’s not always an easy task to make something that all of the kids will like, but I rolled the dice on this one and fortunately, I was right.

Pretty simple to make and I had all of the ingredients available at home, so no need to clean up and head to the store looking like I just rolled out of bed…which I did.  Potatoes, bacon, green bell pepper, onion, salt, black pepper, cheddar cheese and 8 eggs and I was good to go.



The total time in prep and cook time was a little over an hour but totally worth it!  Add salsa or in several of the kids case, ketchup, which added a little extra kick that really made the difference.  While the kids feasted on the breakfast skillet, I drank my coffee in hopes of a few scraps of leftovers.  Well, I was pleasantly surprised when Hayli brought me a plate and a smile and said “the cook deserves a plate too”.  She made my morning and the meal got me off to an amazing start to the day!
