I get lazy making breakfast. It is so much easier to send hubby out for bagels or pour a bowl of cereal than it is to make a mess of the kitchen. However, every once and a while the mood strikes and I want to make a morning meal.

Today it was a simple, inspirational photograph of a potato and egg one-dish skillet I saw on a billboard. Many of my recipes start this way and then progress based on what is in my fridge and pantry instead of using a prescriptive recipe. The billboard was my muse.

Ok, I’m getting a little deep considering this is just a breakfast skillet. Calm down, Jessica.

Preparation for this Sausage and Egg Skillet can be done the night before, so the actual preparation is speedy. I used a 10-inch cast iron pan, but you can easily double the amount served by using a larger cast iron pan.

Andouille sausage adds a bite, so if you would prefer a tamer version, choose a tamer sausage. Just make sure it is savory, not sweet. Cheese and potatoes bring the dish together, as they usually do.

I love making cast iron skillet recipes, the skillet retains heat, lasts longer than other cookware, they are usually cheaper to buy, can be used for many different types of recipes like baking, sautéing, and cooking. If you don’t have one, I highly recommend one.

Ingredients

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Heat olive oil in 10 inch cast iron skillet or other oven proof pan over medium-high.
  • Add potatoes and cook for 3-4 minutes, stirring to make sure they don’t stick to the bottom. If they absorb all of the oil and/or stick, add just a little bit more olive oil.
  • Add onion, salt and pepper and continue to stir. Cook for an additional 5 minutes or until onions are soft. Potatoes will start to soften, but won’t be fully cooked.
  • Add andouille sausage and cook for another 2 minutes. Using the back of your spoon, form 4 wells. Crack eggs into each well. Transfer pan from the stove top to the oven.
  • Cook for 5 minutes. Remove, top with sharp cheddar cheese and return to the oven. Change oven setting to broil. Watch carefully and remove when cheese is melted and bubbly.
  • Remove and top with fresh parsley. Serve Potato, Andouille Sausage and Egg Skillet piping hot.
  • If you’ve tried this recipe, come back and let us know how it was! 

Notes

** If you like your eggs runny, saute potatoes until they are fully cooked and omit baking on 400 degrees for 5 minutes. Instead go straight to broiling and melted cheese.

Questions and Reviews

  1. 5 stars
    Very easy and delicious! I added Cajun seasoning to the potatoes and some yellow bell pepper. Made for Valentine’s breakfast and it was a huge hit.

  2. 5 stars
    I’m a cereal kind of girl more because I don’t have time for a big clean up, but this recipe solves that problem! It’s all the wonderful flavors of breakfast foods but has a super fast clean up! This is a must try in my books!

  3. This sounds like the perfect breakfast! So warm and comforting! Thanks for sharing your recipe!

      1. Is it possible to make this with russet potatoes instead of red? If so how long would you cook the potatoes before? I just don’t have red potatoes on hand.

        1. Sure! They will probably hold up really well- just a difference between waxy and starchy. Same amount of cooking time if they are prepared in the same size/fashion.
