Baked Potato Breakfast Skillet

Love the baked potato taste in the morning.

From now on, you're going to make sure you have extra baked potatoes so you can make this breakfast skillet again. We used ham in the Test Kitchen, but any meat will be great. This is a great recipe for using up leftovers. We loved the combination of peppers, onion, and other spices. Serve this skillet alongside eggs and you have an easy to make hearty breakfast.

How to Make Baked Potato Breakfast Skillet


  1. The night before, bake 4 potatoes, let cool and put in refrigerator until morning.
  2. Peel and dice potatoes. Add to oil and butter in skillet. Then add potatoes, onion, peppers, and spices. Saute for 10 minutes on medium-low.
  3. Add meat and saute for 15 minutes or until hot.
  4. Add cheese and turn burner off for 5 minutes.

    *My cooking isn't always the necessary way lol. You don't need both oil and butter, I just like to fry and saute that way.
