Breakfast Skillitini

Jim and I ate breakfast at Frontier Pies one morning after an early doc appointment or something. We got skillitini's, they were yummo and they served theirs with scone fingers. Delish! I came up with this recipe, we love bigger breakfasts on Saturday mornings, we eat later, so it's more like brunch. You could add mushrooms, green and red bell pepper slices, or sometimes I add green chilies. Also instead of sausage, you could use ham, or spam, or cooked bacon! Be creative! I like to serve this with warm flour tortillas, or toast. Yum!!

Breakfast Skillitini

3 medium red potatoes, diced
1 medium onion, chopped
6 sausage links, sliced
Salt and Pepper to taste
3 eggs
1/2 cup egg beaters egg product (makes for creamier scrambled eggs)
1 cup grated cheese
Tortillas or toast

Heat a good drizzle of olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. When hot, add potatoes and onions (Could add peppers here too) Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Cover pan with lid and let cook about 15 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add sliced sausage, (or whatever meat you want) and cook about 10 more minutes. (add mushrooms here if you want) While sausage and potatoes finish cooking, whisk eggs and egg product together with a good sprinkle of salt and pepper. Heat a small skillet over medium heat, when hot spray with Pam and add egg, sprinkle with 1/4 cup of grated cheese, and scramble, cooking until no longer runny. I like to cook my egg separately, cuz if you cooked it in the other pan, it would all blend together and be a frittata.....
When potatoes and meat are done, Add eggs on top and sprinkle the whole thing with the remaining cheese. Cover with lid and let cheese melt.
Serve with tortillas or toast. Also yummy to sprinkle a little hot sauce on the top. Enjoy!!!
