Loaded Veggie Skillet, USA

The traditional USA breakfast skillet is immortalized in diners across the country. I have had some delicious versions here in Illinois: a Mexican skillet, Cowboy skillet, and Mediterranean skillet.

This recipe was submitted by one of our Cast Iron Journey members, Sarah, and is loaded with so many good and nutritious vegetables. It’s great for anyone who wants to add some more vegetables to their breakfast line-up and I even added some extra when I made it for my family.

2 potatoes, scrubbed, skinned and cubed
3 tbsp olive oil, divided
1/2 tbsp sea salt, divided 
1/2 tsp black pepper, divided
1 sm. Onion thinly sliced (I chopped this one finely because my family prefers it that way)
1 med green pepper thinly sliced (or chopped)
1 med red pepper thinly sliced (or chopped)
3 LGBT portobello mushrooms sliced
1 tsp oregano (I used fresh)
2 cloves garlic minced
1/4 tsp red chili flakes (optional; since we have four little ones who shrink away at spice, my husband and I added this at the end)
2 cup spinach
4 lg eggs
2 tbsp lemon juice 


Preheat oven 400*
Place potatoes on baking sheet, pour 2 tbsp oil over potatoes add 1/4 tsp pepper. Toss well then bake 30 minutes turning half way through.  
While potatoes roast cook veggies. 
Heat remaining oil in skillet, add onion and cook over medium heat until soft about 10 minutes. 
Add peppers and cook 5 minutes. Once peppers are soft add mushrooms, garlic, oregano, salt, pepper and chili flakes. (I chopped up some tomato and added it here as well, we loved it with the tomato). Cook 5 minutes. 
Add 1 cup spinach let wilt and add rest of spinach. Add lemon juice and stir well.. 
Once potatoes are cooked transfer to skillet and stir well. 
Make 4 wells in skillet, break eggs into each well. Place lid over skillet. Once eggs are cooked to desire turn off heat.
Serve. I made it along with some breakfast sausage and it was very delicious!
