Sausage, Potato and Egg Skillet

Recipe by Steve_G
READY IN: 50mins




  • Preheat oven to 400°.
  • In a 10-inch cast iron skillet brown sausage until crumbly and medium brown in color.
  • Stir as required.
  • While sausage is browning peel potatoes and cut in to 1/2-inch cubes, chop onion and mince garlic.
  • After browning, remove sausage from pan with a slotted spoon, add potatoes to pan and carefully brown them in the sausage fat.
  • Remove potatoes from pan and add to reserved sausage.
  • Add butter to pan (if required), once butter is melted add onion and cook until slightly brown and soft, add garlic and cook till aromatic.
  • While onions are browning, light whisk eggs, half-and-half and sugar till slightly foamy.
  • Return potatoes and sausage to pan, mix well with onion and garlic.
  • Season with salt and pepper.
  • Pour egg mixture over sausage/potato/onion, sprinkle on 1/2 the cheese and mix, sprinkle remaining cheese on top.
  • Place pan in preheated oven; cook for 10 minutes and then lower heat to 350° and cook for an additional 10-20 minutes (depending on how you like your eggs). Keep an eye on the pan--if the cheese gets too brown, then cover with buttered aluminum foil.
  • Serve with hot sauce and toast.
  • •Variations:
  • Add mushrooms, green pepper, red pepper and sauté with the onions.
  • Season the egg mix with hot sauce, replace half-and-half with yogurt.
  • Cheese selections, I prefer a small amount of provolone and Parmesan mixed in the eggs with none on top--the wife likes cheddar on top and mixed inches.
