Sausage and Egg Breakfast Skillet

Just say “no” to undercooked potatoes, lackluster eggs, and stingy sausage portions.  After ordering countless unimpressive breakfast skillets over the years, I decided to take matters into my own hands.

I no longer order breakfast skillets when dining out, because I know it won’t live up to this Sausage and Egg Breakfast Skillet recipe.

Breakfast skillet recipes are plentiful for a reason. They’re easy to adapt to your taste preference (or whatever you have left in your fridge), filling and can feed a large family with the use of just 1 pan!

This is how my family rolls when it comes to Breakfast Skillets.

TIP- Make it a Paleo Recipe by replacing the white potatoes with sweet potatoes.

Author: Darcey Olson


  • 2 Yukon Gold or Red Potatoes
  • 1/2 cup Yellow Onion
  • 1/2 cup Bell Pepper
  • 1/2 cup Crumbled Breakfast Sausage
  • 2 Large Eggs
  • 1/8 tsp Ground Thyme
  • 1/4 tsp Red Pepper Flakes
  • Salt to Taste
  • Black Pepper
  • olive oil


  • Pre-heat a skillet or cast iron skillet to medium.
  • While the skillet is pre-heating. Cube the potatoes and microwave in a covered bowl for 2 minutes to speed the cooking process.
  • Add a tablespoon of olive oil to the skillet and add the cooked potatoes, onions and bell pepper. Stir frequently for 4-5 minutes, until vegetables are soft.
  • Add the thyme and red pepper flakes to taste and stir to combine.
  • Add the breakfast sausage and cook until no longer pink. Make sure the sausage is fully combined with the potato mixture.
  • Carve out 2 holes, grease with extra olive oil and crack the eggs directly onto the hot skillet. The eggs will take about 5-7 minutes to fully set. If you prefer you can place the pan in a 350 degree oven for 5 additional minutes to help set the tops of the eggs.
  • Once the eggs have set, divide the mixture onto 2 places and enjoy immediately.
  • Add additional salt and pepper, to taste.
