Maple Bacon, Mushroom and Potato Baked Egg Skillet

Print Friendly


Last month’s big snow day gave me the opportunity to break out that cast iron skillet and make an egg skillet that warmed me up on a cold winter’s day.  As soon as I heard that this snow day was a possibility, I hit the grocery store to stock up on some comfort food and some breakfast fixings. I said this in my last skillet recipe post but I’ll say it again, I rarely get to eat a home cooked breakfast. So if there is an opportunity, I am going to seize it. And seize it I did!! My office announced it was closing the night before, so after sleeping in a bit, I drowsily got to the kitchen to kick off my easy skillet meal.

I loved using maple bacon in this because it lends an extra hint of country style flavor to the dish. Using the reserved bacon drippings as your fat to sauté the mushrooms and potatoes only further that golden wood and confectionery flavors that the maple bacon brings. Baking the eggs sunny side up allows for the eater to dip into that syrupy yolk and mix it onto the other ingredients for maximum flavor.

It’s a one pan meal and if you cheat like I did and use pre-peeled and diced breakfast potatoes, it will be on the table in less than 30 minutes!

One thing to note is that a cast iron skillet is not necessary. However; you do need a pan that is both stovetop and oven safe.

    Sounds delicious and this is my favorite kind of breakfast. I like to cook up extra boiled potatoes and use those the next day for fried potatoes. Bacon would be delicious – haven’t tried it…I usually am using up a bit of roast beef or roast pork, etc.
