Quick Potato & Egg Skillet

Quick Potato & Egg Skillet

(6 servings)    Printable Version
  • 6 medium potatoes - scrubbed
  • 8 large eggs
  • salt and pepper - to taste
Quarter potatoes and slice into 1/4-inch pieces. Place into skillet with a few Tablespoons of oil. Fry until crisp - stirring occasionally.

Add eggs one at a time - mixing well into the potatoes. Season to taste with salt & pepper seasoned salt works well too). Continue frying until eggs are cooked well.

Cooking Notes: This skillet breakfast can be the basis for many creations. Try adding cooked and crumbled bacon or sausage when you add the egg. You can top it with shredded cheese or gravy. When you fry the potatoes, you can add green peppers and/or onions during the last few minutes of frying to add more flavor. Try adding a little chopped jalapeno to make it spicy. Once you know the basics, you can do anything!

This is a great fast meal at our house. We have it at least once a week with toast or biscuits. It's just potatoes and eggs, but when done right, it's the best.

Mr Breakfast would like to thank t92962 for this recipe.

Was great... after I added some stuff. Just as soon as the potatoes were crisp, I added about 3 tablespoons finely chopped onion. I stirred and cooked about 5 minutes until they softened. Then, I added eggs, stirred, covered with shredded cheese, turned off the heat, covered the pan and waited 1 minute for the cheese to melt. With those additions, this was an AMAZING breakfast!

I live alone and I don't really feel like getting up and cooking. But this thing was so simple and I was starving. It turned out great. It doesn't really look that appealing but who gives a dang, tasted great.

From Onions And Peppers

I tried this and loved it although i did add onions and peppers to the potato mix fried with butter, then added eggs and cheese then topped with sour creame... very good.

Put it in a tortilla with some salsa. Then anyone can add cheese, chives, tomatoes, whatever. Take it with you. DELICIOUS!

Oh, we call this egg/potato hash at my house and have enjoyed it for years... but we add diced onions to the mix.

Awesome recipe, but num.. gotta go with the added cheesh over those spudsters! I guess the good thing about this recipe though, is that it's a great starter that can be personalized anyway you want it! Diced roasted red peppers, carmalized onions, chopped spinach, feta cheese, whatever you're in the mood for!
