This breakfast skillet came about from leftovers. Yes, I had leftover steak. Those that know me might find that impossible seeing that I’m a woman who loves her steak, but I cooked ribeyes for dinner and they were huge. So the next morning needless to say, I was still craving the last of that delicious steak along with some roasted potatoes that we had on the side.
This breakfast skillet is easy to make and you can make as many servings as you want. Or you can keep it all to yourself, I won’t tell. If you don’t have leftover steak or potatoes that’s ok, you can cook them separately and then follow the rest of the recipe. It may take a little more time, but it will be worth the wait. How can you resist tender steak with crispy potatoes all folded into fluffy eggs with a touch of hot sauce and gooey cheese all nestled together to make a delicious, satisfying breakfast.
Here’s what you need:
This serves 2 but you can double it to serve more.
*2 tsp canola oil
*any cut of steak cooked the way you like it; I used ribeye. I used some leftovers that I had, but 1 steak would make 2 to 3 servings depending on the size of the steak.
*Roasted potatoes; I used leftovers but you can use frozen diced potatoes. If using diced frozen potatoes cook according to package directions
*4 eggs; I used 2 eggs per person.
*hot sauce to taste
*salt and cracked pepper to taste
*1/3 cup of shredded cheese or more to taste; I used a combination of cheddar and Colby Jack
*fresh or dried parsley for garnish (optional)
Cut steak in to pieces; set aside
Heat a medium skillet to medium high heat and add the canola oil. Add in the potatoes and cook for about 2 minutes stirring frequently. If you are using frozen potatoes, cook according to package directions.
Add in the steak.
Continue cooking for another minute or until the steak is warm. Do not cook too long or the steak will over cook.
Turn the heat down to medium. In a bowl whisk together the eggs.
Pour the eggs into the pan over the steak and potatoes.
With a spatula, start folding the eggs on and around the steak and potatoes. Add salt and pepper to taste.
When the eggs begin to set, sprinkle on the cheese and the hot sauce.
Keep stirring the egg mixture until the eggs are no longer runny and are set, but still soft.
Place on to plates and sprinkle on the parsley and serve.
