Porky Pig Sweet Potato Skillet

Gluten Free Living – 2022

You haven’t lived until you’ve tried my Porky Pig Sweet Potato Skillet. While this recipe is fantastic with regular hash browns, using sweet potatoes instead of regular potatoes bumps it up a notch. While I’ve shredded the sweet potatoes to make for easier and quicker cooking, most of the time I see sweet potatoes in fine dice when they serve them locally in restaurants.

One of the things about my many breakfast skillet recipes is that they are very hearty. Most people will not be able to eat the whole skillet in one sitting. (Yes, they are a lot of calories). But they are a “fill-me-up” breakfast that can’t be beat. In this case, there are seasoned sweet potatoes on the bottom. Those are topped with Monterey Jack and Cheddar cheese. Then I layer with bacon, sausage and ham (oh my). And lastly, the seasoned eggs sunny-side-up.

You get everything you enjoy eating for breakfast, but in one delicious dish instead of four or five! 🙂 This particular skillet recipe is modeled after one of our favorite breakfast recipe locations. I usually get it along with a plate of biscuits whenever we go there. Yes, it’s too much for one sitting, but every bite is so scrumptious. And actually, these breakfast skillets reheat pretty well too.

Here are a few recommendations when making this recipe.

  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 a dish 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.
  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.

Wake your family up to the heartiness of a Porky Pig Sweet Potato Skillet. It’s so filling and satisfying they won’t want much else to eat for quite some time. 🙂

Seasoning the sweet potatoes and eggs makes all the difference.

I used these ingredients. Note that I pre-cooked the bacon and sausage. I only used one small sweet potato for each breakfast skillet.

Transfer the meats and layer on top of the cheeses. Place skillet in oven at 350 degrees for about 5-7 minutes until cheese melts. Or you can transfer to microwave if you have everything in a glass baking dish. Microwave about a minute or so until cheese melts and dish is hot.
