Easy Skillet Breakfast

Sharing is caring!

I find that people have a little more trouble getting creative with breakfast ideas. Personally, I love cooking up different breakfast dishes for my family. This Skillet Breakfast recipe is one that is very easy to make and is very budget friendly. In fact there are only seven ingredients in this recipe. I’d be willing to bet you have at least  5 of them in your kitchen right now!

This is also one of those recipes that is great to throw together for last-minute company. In under 25 minutes you will have breakfast on the table and it will taste like you spent all morning cooking!

If you want to take it up a notch pair this Skillet Breakfast with a Pineapple Mocktail. This delicious juice goes excellent with any breakfast and is a nice change from traditional orange juice. Between the Skillet Breakfast and the Pineapple Mocktail you are sure to impress anyone you are serving this to.

How about the recipe for the Pineapple Mocktail to go with the Easy Skillet Breakfast. How come it feed 4 when you used 6 eggs?
