Breakfast is the most important meal of the day. So it’s essential to have a list of easy, go-to breakfasts that you can make. You want something that’s hearty, healthy, and delicious! Luckily, this amazing Potato Sausage Breakfast Skillet checks all those boxes!
Soft, flavorful potatoes are mixed with crumbed breakfast sausage. 3 eggs are gently cooked, nestled in the crevices, with firm whites and runny yolks. Then it’s topped with fresh tomatoes and parsley. It’s seriously one of the best bites you could have for breakfast!
Skillet meals are nice because everything is made in one pan– no extra dishes. But it does require know-how and a knowledge of how fast different ingredients cook. So let’s walk through the process for a moment.
Potatoes can be made entirely in the skillet, but we want to infuse them with the flavor of our Fresh Churned Steakhouse Butter. If we try to put them in the skillet raw, they’ll take so long to cook that the butter will burn. So we soften the potatoes up in the microwave– it only takes a few minutes.
Then, the soft potatoes can pick up the flavors of the Steakhouse Butter better.
Add the sausage and cook. It just needs to brown.
Make 3 little wells in your potato sausage mixture, and crack an egg into each one. Add a little salt and pepper, and cover. They’ll cook in just a minute or two.
Remove the from the heat and add your garnishes!
