This one-skillet potato and bacon breakfast recipe is quick and easy to make and the perfect way to get your day started.

This is a dish I made a couple of weeks ago and it’s so quick and easy and perfect to serve with a side of poached or scrambled eggs and toast. Place a poached egg on top so that the yolk mixes into the potatoes and bacon.

One thing that makes me extra happy on Sunday brunch days is not having to use too many pots and pans. Some days that just doesn’t work though, like last weekend when I made pumpkin pancakes, bacon, and scrambled eggs. I swear the combination of mixing bowls and pans filled the dishwasher that morning.

This recipe requires just a skillet and cutting board. Simple as that.
