Breakfast Skillet Recipe with Berries


Breakfast Skillet Recipe with Berries:

complete breakfast from one skillet smothered in cheese and blueberries and raspberries

I was going through my freezer the other day and discovered a package of frozen diced hash browns. So I decided it was time to come up with a recipe to incorporate these. I also noticed that I had some berries that were not getting any younger. Was this a creation in the making?  Maybe!

It seems that one-skillet and one-pot recipes are all the rage. They are everywhere–even one-bowl recipes. Well, it was time to get on board and try my hand at something. After all, who wants to have a bunch of cooking equipment to clean?  Not me. I must say, I actually enjoyed the cooking process. There is just one skillet to tend to; rather than having several things going at one time.

In this recipe, I prefer to fry my hash browns in butter instead of oil. This gives it extra richness. However, butter has a low burn temperature, so you will want to watch the temperature carefully. Do not cook them higher than a medium heat.

Since you do not turn over the eggs and there is no grease to flip on top of the eggs, you will want to cover the skillet with a lid to help set the eggs on top. In addition, the hot cheese also helps to set the eggs.

This is a great use for leftover ham which I had after Easter.

  • 16 ounces diced hash browns
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 1 small onion, diced
  • 1/3 cup bell pepper, chopped
  • 1 cup ham, diced
  • 6 eggs
  • 1 cup shredded colby jack cheese
  • 2 green onions, sliced
  • 1/2 cup blueberries
  • 1/2 cup raspberries
  • salt, pepper, hot sauce (to taste)
  1. Melt the butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Saute the onion and bell pepper until starting to brown. Add the hash browns to the skillet in a single layer and fry until lightly brown on that side (about 10 minutes). Salt and pepper to taste. Flip over and fry for another 5 minutes on the other side.
