Skillet Potato and Eggs



           Skillet Potato and Eggs are a perfect Brunch or Dinner recipe. It is a comforting recipe to serve. The crunchy roasted potatoes with mild sweetness from the sweet potatoes and the egg yolks and whites perfectly cooked with the cheese makes this dish delicious.




Try it with different herbs and cheese of your choice. Add more vegetables like zucchini or peppers to make a variation. We can also make this dish by grating the potatoes like hash browns and cook the same way. Enjoy this dish hot for a melting recipe treat.

Method:
