Sometimes when we go out to eat, we like to eat breakfast foods. Breakfast for supper is a wonderful way to enjoy breakfast with everyone around the table. I’ll never forget the first time my husband ordered a breakfast skillet at the Cracker Barrel, it looked so good. He even shared a bite with me and oh, so yummy it was. The breakfast skillet is something I knew I could recreate at home. Since I feed men in my house, this dish has been named the Hungry Man Breakfast Skillet.
Being a frugalista, I love saving money by cooking breakfast foods for our supper. Since, Jamie and I are not breakfast eaters, we enjoy having these foods in the evenings. While I cook breakfast every morning for my husband, he also enjoys a laid back supper – The Hungry Man Breakfast Skillet fits the bill.
How cute would it be to serve your family’s meal in 6 ½ in cast iron skillets? Mine’s a LODGE and I love it!
I love how this recipe works – it doesn’t require anything special or out of the ordinary. Add the ingredients you want to eat and enjoy. I cooked 2 eggs for each of us and added shredded cheese to the other two plates since they are the big cheese eaters.
I know y’all think I’m creative on the names of my recipes, but sadly, I can’t take credit for this. A sweet friend of mine named this recipe for me since I was lost on a name. 🙂
