Was there ever a time you created a recipe and you wish you would have doubled it? That was this one for me. As I was preparing breakfast for my husband on New Year’s Day, I decided to make a skillet using some of our favorite ingredients. A few months ago, I was also given a sample of African spice blends from a friend of mine. Naturally, I thought this would be the perfect time to test them out. OMG! The aromas coming from the kitchen were mouthwatering. Honestly, I could hardly wait for breakfast to be done! Additionally, I love that it is a one-pan wonder! This may be The Best Breakfast Skillet ever!

You definitely should use a cast iron pan for this preparation. As mentioned earlier, I used my Friend, Vida’s “Sassy Lady” blend. This blend contains cumin, oregano, paprika, chili pepper, garlic and a few other specialties. The most amazing blend of spices. If you can’t get your hands on a bag of her spices, use your favorites!

Naturally, I created a short video on TikTok of the making of this fabulous Breakfast Skillet. Click here to view. If you are not yet a member of this social media platform, use my code 5SSIS800K0H06 to create an account!

the best Breakfast skillet with eggs


Heat up one tablespoon of olive oil in the cast iron pan. Still don’t have a cast iron pan? You need one! Click here for the one I use most often. Add in the sausage. Break apart as it is browning. Once browned and fully cooked, transfer to a plate. Reserve.

Add the diced potatoes, along with another tablespoon of olive oil, to the same skillet. Season with the spice blend, kosher salt and black pepper. Allow to cook until just tender. This should take about eight to ten minutes. Heat the oven to 350 degrees. Add in the shallot, red bell pepper and jalapeño. You may, or may not need the last tablespoon of olive oil at this point. Cook until the peppers brown up just a touch.

Add the browned sausage back to the pan, along with the chopped spinach. Combine well.

Push aside the mixture to create wells for the eggs. Spray each well with non-stick spray. This will help to ensure the eggs will not stick to the bottom. Crack an egg in a separate bowl. Pour eggs into each well. You should be able to fit three to four eggs nicely in the skillet. If you so desire, top with a few sprinkles of shredded cheese.

Transfer the pan to the oven. Allow the eggs to bake (set) to your liking. In six minutes, my eggs were a perfect over medium.

Remove from oven. Garnish with fresh chopped parsley. ENJOY The Best Breakfast Skillet EVER!!!

I am more than just recipes. I love fashion and style too! Most importantly, I love my Family (my Hubby and my Fur Babies). My Husband (aka my “Kitchen Bitch”) means the world to me. He’s pretty damn cool too. Not only is he one of the nicest guys you will ever meet, he also has had a lengthy career in professional hockey. Not only winning two Stanley Cups with the Pittsburgh Penguins in the early ’90’s, but most recently winning the Calder Cup with the Charlotte Checkers, amongst many other accolades. If you live in Charlotte and play hockey, or have a family member who plays, be sure to contact him!

Our life has changed dramatically in the past few years with the passing of our two goldendoodles, Vegas and Viva. We were lucky enough to have Vegas for five years (totally wish it was longer). Most recently, losing our Viva to a brain tumor in July of 2020. We welcomed our mini goldendoodle 7, almost seven years ago. We just added the amazing Hazel! Of course, I am always posting tons and tons of photos! Be sure to check out my recipe for Pet Bone Broth! This broth is super rich in nutrients and will provide your pet with a multitude of health benefits!
