How to Make Eggs and Potatoes

  1. PREP. Because this recipe ends in the oven, be sure to preheat that before cooking up your potatoes (to 400 degrees).
  2. POTATOES. To begin, you will need to use an ovenproof cast-iron skillet. Butter this and add your cubed red potatoes. Cook these until tender. Stir in the parsley, garlic, garlic salt and black pepper.
  3. EGGS. With the back of a spoon, make 4 well in the potato mixture. Break two eggs and pout into each well in the potatoes.
  4. BAKE. Take this and bake it in the oven for 10-12 minutes. Sprinkle with cheese and bake an additional minute or two.

Pro Tip

Note: You can modify this baking time based on how you like your eggs. If you like them more runny, cook for a lower amount of time. If you like them more cooked, extend the cooking time by a few minutes.

Variations + SToring

  • Adding meat to this breakfast skillet is a great way to add some protein and make it more hearty. We recommend add the cooked meat towards the end of cooking up the potatoes. Steak, Bacon and even Chorizo all work great in this recipe.
  • Adding vegetables/spices is another great option. Add bell peppers, mushrooms, onion, spinach or your favs. You can also add spices like: basil, red pepper flakes, parika or any other fresh herbs you love.
  • STORE. Place this dish in an air-tight container in the fridge will last for up to 4 days.
  • REHEAT. Use the microwave or throw back on the skillet for a few minutes.
