POTATO SKILLET BREAKFAST with sausage, eggs and veggies

Potato skillet breakfast

My favorite Sunday meal is breakfast; or brunch depending on what time I wake up. During the week I usually eat prosciutto sandwiches because it is the closest thing to the Spanish ham that I could find in the US. It reminds me the breakfasts that my mom used to prepare for me in Spain so it feels good to start the week feeling close to home. Plus, it is fast and easy.

I am a happy camper with my weekday breakfasts, but when the weekend rolls around I take advantage of the extra time and try to make something more special and fun. There is such an assortment of amazing dishes which fit into the combo morning/lunch category and I’m always seeking out new delicious recipes.

Last Sunday Dan gave me the idea to cook a potato skillet with sausage, eggs and some veggies that we had on hand. Β I am a big potato fan so I was quickly sold on that idea. Β This breakfast skillet ended up being a fabulous brunch and even though it took a bit of time to prepare it was quite easy. Β It was a big hit, and I’m sure Dan will request it again!!
