Start your day with these colorful, delicious, St. Patrick’s Day Sizzlin Breakfast Skillets.
I like creating something special for my family on each holiday, so that was my inspiration for these St. Patrick’s Day Sizzlin Breakfast Skillets.
I bought these cast iron fajita skillets last year, and have had so much fun creating meals on them. This is the first time that I have prepared a breakfast recipe on them.
Start with the breakfast ingredients your family likes.
Mine were Potatoes O’ Brien (so Irish), ham, sausage, cheese, baby spinach, hot sauce, and eggs.
I made 2 different versions of these St. Patrick’s Day Sizzlin Breakfast Skillets.
Keep the skillets in an oven on low heat to keep them warm prior to placing your food on them.
Brown your potatoes in a skillet with oil, then place them on the fajita skillets. In another skillet, scramble the eggs, stirring in the ham and sausage. Place on top of potatoes. Sprinkle with cheese and baby spinach. Serve warm.
The other version I made was my husband’s favorite with a fried egg on top.
Brown the potatoes in a skillet. Stir in the ham and sausage. Place on a warm skillet. Sprinkle shredded cheese and baby spinach over the potatoes. Fry egg and place on top. Serve warm.
St. Patrick’s Day Sizzlin Breakfast Skillets are a fun way to make the morning special for your children, grandchildren, guests, or your family.
