Todds (better than Dennys) Egg and Potato Skillet

Ok, it may not look pretty, (I've never been to cooking school) but boy does it taste good.

Today, I thought I'd try something different and share a quick and easy recipe. I do a lot of the cooking for our family, and one of my favorite meals is "breakfast for dinner" ... and one of my favorite "dinner breakfasts" is my (Better than Dennys) Potato and Egg Skillet.

Here's what you'll need to make it:


  • A large frying pan or electric skillet

  • Oil ... I used macadamia nut oil tonight

  • 6-9 eggs

  • 4 small potatoes

  • 1 small onion

  • Ham or Bacon

  • 2 tomatoes

  • Shredded cheddar cheese



I start out with the pan on low heat, and add a couple of tablespoons of oil.

Wash and cut the potatoes into cubes and chop the onion. Add both to the pan, and turn up the heat. Use a spatula to stir/turn over occasionally. Season to your taste with salt, pepper, Italian seasoning, and even a little bit of garlic if you like. If you cover the pan, it will cook a little quicker.

While the potatoes are cooking, chop up the ham into small pieces. Once the potatoes start to become soft (about 10 minutes), add in the ham and mix it in well. Give it a few minutes to heat up while cutting the tomatoes into small pieces ... add them in.

In a medium bowl, scramble 6-9 eggs with a little bit of milk, some paprika, and if you like a little bit of ketchup (will turn your eggs pink).

Pour the eggs right over the top of the potato mixture in the pan. Turn/mix for a couple of minutes until the eggs start to harden. Spread shredded cheese over the top, turn down the heat to low and cover.

In just a couple of minutes it will be ready to eat ... easily feeding 4-5 people.

I hope you enjoy !

Aloha til next time,
Todd
