Ham and Bell Pepper Breakfast Skillet

Gluten Free Living – 2022

Ham and Bell Pepper Breakfast Skillet is a wonderful breakfast entree–especially for those of you who enjoy hearty breakfasts. This one includes hash browns, two kinds of cheese: Monterey Jack and Cheddar, eggs, four colors of bell peppers, a little onion and, of course, ham. It tastes delightfully.

John and I have eaten at lots of mom & pop diners and cafes over the past year. So many times I got one of these amazing breakfast skillets. There are all kinds of varieties in the Metroplex but lots of them with southern-style or Tex-Mex flavors. I love them all.

I recommend making these on a griddle if you want to make them for family instead of individual servings. If you’re short on time, you can pre-cook the hash browns and the bell peppers so that all you have to do is re-heat them. If you put the ingredients in a baking dish you can have real ease of heating the concoction since all you have to do is microwave everything before you add the eggs. But if you want to make them like me and serve out of a skillet, you’ll need to heat up the dish before adding the eggs so the cheese melts and everything stays hot.

Here are a couple of tips for making this recipe:

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.

If you enjoy a hearty breakfast, Ham and Bell Pepper Breakfast Skillet is so satisfying and filling. You may find that even your kids want a portion of your breakfast! Eat and enjoy.

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.
