Farmer's Skillet Breakfast

(7 Votes)
25 Min

Okay, you've only got a half-hour before you drive carpool, better known as Mom's Taxi Service. So grab a skillet and, in no time, you'll have a diner breakfast of eggs and potatoes that's guaranteed to get them going.

What You'll Need:
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) butter
  • 1 bell pepper (or 1/2 red and 1/2 green), diced
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 1 pound frozen hash brown potatoes
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 6 eggs
What To Do:
  1. In a large skillet, melt butter over high heat. Add bell pepper and onion, and saute for 2 minutes. Add hash brown potatoes, salt, and black pepper, and stir until well combined.
  2. Cook 10 to 12 minutes, or until golden, stirring frequently. Reduce heat to medium.
  3. Using a spoon, make 6 evenly-spaced indentations about 1/2 inch deep in mixture. Crack eggs one at a time and place each in an indentation.
  4. Cover skillet and cook 7 to 9 minutes, or until eggs are set and cooked as desired. Serve immediately.

Add a splash of salsa or hot pepper sauce to these home fries for extra zing.
