Hawaiian Breakfast Skillet

May 26, 2022Teresa

Gluten Free Living – 2022

I made a lot of these fabulous Breakfast Skillets back in the winter and early spring. One of my favorites was the Hawaiian Breakfast Skillet. I love any kind of Hawaiian combination anyway and I’ve made lots of recipes with those lovely flavors of ham, pineapple, bell peppers and the like. I’ve done a Breakfast Casserole, Pizza Cups, Pizza Bubble Bread, Chicken Two Ways, even Meatballs. I love Hawaiian flavors, and they taste wonderfully in this breakfast skillet recipe.

My husband and I enjoy eating out for breakfast occasionally. Breakfast Skillets are a big deal in many of the cafes and diners in the Dallas Metroplex. I’ve eaten a lot of them, but never Hawaiian. I thought I’d try my hand at making one with ham, pineapple and bell peppers, along with all the other normal ingredients in a breakfast skillet: hash browns, two cheeses and eggs.

I was completely satisfied with the results. Not only did I get that fantastic Hawaiian flavor, I got cheesy goodness in the form of eggs and hash browns as well. Yes, this was definitely a favorite.

Here are a few tips:

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 a serving dish(es) in which to transfer everything. 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.

Preparing a Hawaiian Breakfast Skillet is a marvelous way to enjoy your favorite foods for breakfast. If you need to cut back on calories, eat only half of the skillet and reserve the rest for later. It reheats pretty well. This recipe is enough for one very hearty and large appetite! Also you can use less meat and cheese if desired. But remember, those ingredients are what make this recipe so tasty. If you cut down too much, you’ll lose the element of deliciousness.

Regardless, this delightful breakfast is one that will knock your socks off! And your family’s too. 🙂

Recipe Notes

NOTE: If you have a griddle, it is probably easiest to make everything at once on the griddle. Just don’t start the eggs at the same time as everything else. They are the last things to get cooked. Layer ingredients in a skillet or oven-proof serving dish in order listed.

NOTE: Please see tips in the post above before starting this recipe.
