Garden Vegetable Breakfast Skillet

April 7, 2022Teresa

Gluten Free Living – 2022

I love the way this Garden Vegetable Breakfast Skillet turned out. The breakfast skillet is layered with seasoned hash browns, then two cheeses. Then it’s topped with all the cooked veggies. Finally, two seasoned, sunny-side-up eggs are slid on top. This masterpiece is fantastic for a hearty breakfast you’re sure to love. While the recipe is not vegan, it is both gluten free and vegetarian.

John and I have been frequenting many mom and pop diners and cafes with some friends over the past several months. When our friend orders, she usually chooses a veggie omelet or skillet. Finally, I broke down one time when I was eating out with John and got the veggie version of this fantastic dish. I loved it. So I decided to replicate my version of Garden Vegetable Breakfast Skillet.

I have probably made ten or twelve versions of breakfast skillets at this point. Let me provide a few tips that you’ll find helpful.

  1. Use a griddle and cook everything at one time (except the eggs, they must be cooked last).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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.

Garden Vegetable Breakfast Skillet is a healthier, slimmer version of the breakfast skillet versus the Porky Pig version or other versions with meat. It’s also a delicious way to get your kids to eat their veggies! This is a delightful breakfast for weekends or company.

If you don’t want to spend a half-hour trying to get everything ready, pre-cook your potatoes, veggies and meats (if using). Then just assemble the ingredients in small baking dishes and heat up either in the oven (probably about 10-15 minutes) or in the microwave (probably 1-2 minutes per dish), and then top with the cooked eggs. Your family will enjoy a delightful breakfast and everyone will go away from the table very happy campers. Enjoy!

Melt two tablespoons butter in a non-stick skillet. Add hash browns.

Season the hash browns. This is really important. It will flavor the recipe so much better than simply using salt or pepper or nothing at all. I used dried parsley, rosemary, thyme and Italian seasoning in addition to salt and pepper. Just a pinch or sprinkle of each will do.

Cook hash browns over medium heat until browned lightly on the bottom – about 5 to 7 minutes. Then turn hash browns over and continue cooking until potatoes are fork tender–an additional 5-7 minutes or so. My potatoes were frozen. If your potatoes are thawed, they won’t take quite as long to cook.

Meanwhile, in another non-stick skillet melt one tablespoon butter. Add diced onion, diced red bell pepper, diced orange bell pepper, sliced mushrooms, diced tomatoes and broccoli florets. Stir to combine.

While eggs are cooking, prepare skillet: For the oven – preheat oven to 350 degrees. Place cooked hash browns in a small breakfast skillet (about 8-inches). For the microwave – Place hash browns in a glass dish.

Recipe Notes

NOTE: If you’re on a time crunch, it is easier to prepare the veggies and hash browns in advance. Then add as needed and heat as described above. If ingredients are cold from the refrigerator, you may need to add additional time to heat through before adding the eggs on top.

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 veggies.

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.

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

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.
