Weekends are great for me, because I can both sleep in AND have lots of time for cooking awesome breakfasts. I'm not normally a 'breakfast person', but sometimes the mood strikes and I want something big and filling and delicious in the AM. I had plenty of potatoes, that's usually a staple in my breakfast favorites. I also had some frozen turkey bacon (go ahead and groan, any males reading this, but it tastes delicious. As long as you don't expect 'real' bacon taste) and ground beef. Kind of just making it up as I went, I came up with a restaurant-worthy breakfast skillet.
1 pound ground beef
1/2 pound turkey bacon (go ahead and use real if you have it)
1/2 cup corn or other veggie (if you like that kind of thing)
2 potatoes, diced
1/2 onion, diced
Spray on vegetable oil or 2 tbsp oil
Step 1: Dice up the potato and onion, spray the pan with oil. Microwave the potato for 5-8 minutes to soften. Cook on medium heat for at least 10-15 minutes, until the onion and potato chunks are soft.
Step 2: Cut up the bacon and add it and the ground beef to the pan. Cook until the ground beef is thoroughly browned. Add vegetables if you're using any. Transfer the cooked skillet to another bowl and keep warm.
Step 3: Spray the pan again and add 2 eggs. Let them cook a few minutes, until the whites thicken. Carefully flip them to cook the other side.
Step 4: Put about a cup of the skillet mix into a bowl, slide the cooked sunny-side up eggs on top. Viola!
This was amazingly delicious, hearty and filling. If I had the time, I'd make breakfast like this every day! But then I'd also probably weigh 50 pounds more than I do now... Anyways, enjoy!
