Breakfast in a Skillet - Texas Style

Lynn Socko


With a well seasoned taco meat this tastes totally Tex-Mex, the flavors are delicious with the meat and the pico de gallo. We just love these Breakfast in a Skillet dishes, so many ways to make them.
NOTE: Cook time includes the stove top and oven times combined. If you do not have leftover taco meat you could easily cook it in the time it takes to par-cook the potatoes. I would suggest having the pico de gallo made in advance.

How to Make Breakfast in a Skillet - Texas Style


  • 1Wash potatoes and slice into medium thick rounds. I like using a mandolin for this. Place in bowl and drizzle with a little olive oil and any spicy seasoning (seasoning opt). Now layer bottom of cast iron skillet or any baking dish, approx 9x11. Cook over low heat with lid on for about 15 - 20 min until you can easily place a fork through, they should not be cooked all the way though. Once potatoes are fork tender, place about 3/4 c of cheese on top of potatoes.
  • 2For the egg mixture I used leftover taco meat and leftover pico de gallo so I was ready to go. Mix eggs, taco meat and pico together well in bowl. Pour over cheese topped potatoes.
  • 3Place in a 350° oven on center rack and bake uncovered for about 25-35 min or until center is no longer giggly. During the last few minutes of cooking time add more cheese on top and allow to melt. Let cool in pan for about 10-15 min before slicing and serving.
