This recipe was taken from my Southern Living Dinner in a Dish recipe book. The presentation is really impressive for when guests are over. This dish is also super versatile because you can try adding different veggies depending on what you like to eat. I adjusted the recipe by reducing the amount of oil and also by adding some paprika to the potatoes.
This recipe only requires a few ingredients.
Soak the potatoes after grating them because this helps prevent them from turning brown and it also removes some of the starch off of them.
Sweat the onions and peppers in some oil and butter.
Add the garlic, and then the potatoes and paprika, stir until they're golden and tender.
Make indentations with the back of a spoon and crack the eggs into them. Season with salt and pepper.
Bake at 350° for 12 to 14 minutes or until the eggs are set.
Sunny Skillet Breakfast
4 potatoes, peeled and grated
1 tbsp butter
1 tbsp vegetable oil
1 small red bell pepper, diced
1 medium onion, diced
1 garlic clove, crushed
1 tsp paprika powder
3/4 tsp salt, divided
6 large eggs
1/4 tsp pepper
Note: Soaking the shredded potatoes in cold water keeps them from turning gray before cooking. It also rinses off some of the starch. Drain and pat them dry, so they won't stick to the cast-iron skillet.
I love to eat! I've been baking since before I was a teenager and exploring more with cooking for the past decade. This section of the site is dedicated to my experiments in the kitchen.
