Porky Pig Breakfast Skillet

March 31, 2022Teresa

Gluten Free Living – 2022

Oh my gosh, I am crazy for this Porky Pig Breakfast Skillet! No kidding. This breakfast skillet has it all. Seasoned hash browns layer the bottom. The hash browns are topped with both Monterey Jack and cheddar cheese. The cheeses are topped with fried sausage, bacon and ham. Then two eggs, sunny-side up are slid on top. It is one of the best breakfasts we have ever eaten!

John and I have been going to lots of small diners and cafe’s for breakfast a couple of times a week. It’s a great way to learn about the new community we have moved to. I also learn all the streets and get a better handle on directions and where everything is. We have enjoyed so many delightful mom and pop places and we certainly have our favorites. We’ve even taken some friends to some of them.

My favorite breakfast item is always the “Breakfast Skillet.” I’ve had just about every variety imaginable, but “Porky Pig” is my favorite. Bacon. Ham. Sausage. Oh my! I liked these skillet breakfasts so much, I decided to make them at home. They are a bit of work, but so worth it.

Here are some tips if you want to speed up the process:

  1. Use a griddle and cook everything at one time (except the eggs, they must be cooked last).
  2. You may want to cook up potatoes (or sweet potatoes), veggies, or meats in advance. Then just toss together and heat up in your microwave or oven.
  3. Don’t leave off seasoning the potatoes or eggs. Even if you enjoy different flavors than the ones I prefer, use them. It really amps up the flavors of this breakfast skillet. You’ll find everything a little dull if you use only salt and pepper. Add your favorites. Get creative.
  4. I recommend using a non-stick skillet if you don’t have a griddle. You’ll also need something to transfer everything to. A small skillet if you heat up ingredients in the oven, or a baking dish if microwaving to heat everything up.
  5. If you want to make multiple skillets (for your whole family for breakfast), you will need a griddle and it is really better to pre-cook everything (except the eggs). Then just assemble everything the next morning and put in the oven or microwave to melt the cheese and get everything hot again.

I think I could enjoy a Porky Pig Breakfast Skillet every day of the week. Even though this recipe is for one person, you will usually get two servings out of it, especially if you add fruit or sweet rolls to the mix. These lovely breakfast skillets are hearty, filling and so satisfying. If you have issues with pork, consider substituting turkey or chicken sausage or turkey bacon and leave off the ham. But if you can eat pork, Porky Pig Breakfast Skillet is the best!

Mine had very little oil, but if there is some, sop it up with paper towels. You will only need 1/3 cup for this single batch recipe. I recommend refrigerating the rest for future use.

Fry the bacon until cooked. Either use the bacon grease as lard in recipes or sop up with paper towels and discard. You will only need 1/3 cup for this recipe. Refrigerate remaining bacon for another use.

Recipe Notes

NOTE: If you’re on a time crunch, it is easier to prepare the sausage and bacon in advance. Then add as needed and heat as described above.

NOTE: You can also pre-cook the hash browns. Use as directed in recipe.

NOTE: I recommend using either a non-stick skillet or griddle for this recipe. If you try to make more than one serving, it is easier to pre-cook the potatoes and meats.

NOTE:  This is enough for one very hearty appetite. You may find that you get two servings out of each skillet, instead one merely one.

NOTE: My potatoes were frozen. If your potatoes are thawed, they won't take quite as long to cook.

NOTE: Since this recipe is quite involved, I highly recommend you read through the directions and follow my step-by-step pictures in this post to get the best results.
