Breakfast Skillet Bake
I decided to change things up a bit with my breakfast casseroles. So, I made a Breakfast Skillet Bake. I love cooking in my cast iron skillets, they give food such a unique taste. Cast iron skillets are known to boost your iron intake from eating foods in your cast iron skillet. Did you know that? That alone is a good reason to go buy one if you don’t already own one. I’ll be here when you get back.
Cast Iron Skillets also hold seasoning well. If you want to know more about cleaning and seasoning your cast iron skillet, please visit Real Simple : Cleaning and Seasoning a Cast Iron Skillet. They do require a little more maintenance than your typical skillet, but oh so worth it. They last decades and decades. And the number of foods you can make in one is ridiculous. From stove top to oven. From Breads to Sauces to Burgers.
Back to the Breakfast Skillet Bake. This took me 5 minutes to prepare. Yes, I cheated and used some pre-cooked foods. Hey, don’t judge. Look at the time it gave me to do other things. Throw all your ingredients in a bowl, stir and then pour the bowl into the skillet. Place in the oven and you’re pretty much done. Not many recipes like that.
I used a smaller 8″ cast iron skillet and the serving size came to be 2-4 people. Depends on what you’re serving along side of it. But, you could use a bigger skillet and feed many more. Just up the serving size on the recipe below. I just had a cup of fruit cocktail with mine.
If you don’t have a cast iron skillet but you’re still looking for a breakfast casserole…look no further, check out my Breakfast Egg Casserole.
Do you own a cast iron skillet? What do you use it for?
