Egg, Potato, and Sausage Skillet Recipe (1)

Happy Sunday. Our Sunday mornings usually consist of a yummy breakfast and this is one of our go-to favorites.

I usually whip this up on the stove while my husband and kids are on pancake duty . . . it’s one of my favorite things. Why can’t every morning be as wonderful (and delicious) as Sundays?

I usually get at least 8 servings out of this recipe, but I will portion out the leftovers in individual serving containers, stick them in the fridge, and then we have “to-go” breakfasts ready all week.

It beats cold cereal any day.

You can seriously throw it together in minutes, and it’s perfect for breakfast, lunch or dinner. It is so yummy.

why aren’t my eggs setting?

For this recipe, the eggs aren’t added until just about everything else is cooked, because the eggs cook fast.

However, if you add the eggs too early, it will effect the cook time of everything else. We recommend letting the frozen potatoes cook all the way through, before adding your eggs.

You can also stir in your eggs a little bit. Sometimes I will make the eggs scrambled with this recipe, because my kids love their eggs scrambled.

If you still feel like your eggs aren’t sitting up properly, you can also put them under the broiler for a minute or two.

This will also melt your cheese a little more thoroughly.

what sauce could i put on this?

My husband is a total sauce lover. He can’t have food without sauce. I personally can eat this without any sauce, but my husband sauces all his breakfast foods.

This recipe is really delicious with some sauces and toppings.

Here are a few we recommend:

  • salsa
  • hot sauce
  • buffalo sauce
  • pico de gallo
  • salsa verde
  • ketchup
  • A1 Steak Sauce (my husband loves this on his sausage and eggs…)
  • maple syrup (also a husband favorite. If it’s a breakfast food, it has syrup on it).

    Looks awesome. Would love to try this one soon! :)

  2. A Cook says:

    My eggs didn't set either :(

  3. Miriam says:

    Try putting under the broiler?

  4. Jennifer B says:

    The eggs don't set. :( You might want to revise this recipe.

  5. Liz says:

    My eggs didn't set either so I ended up just stirring everything together which worked better. Kind of bland, but with some added flavors, it was ok.

  6. JoAnn says:

    My eggs set and I had no problems at all! It was delicious!

  7. Maggie Galliher says:

    I've always finished cooking frittata in the oven after adding the cheese. That's way, the eggs set and the cheese melts and all is well.

  8. Penny says:

    I cook my sausage and if there is not much oil in the pan after it has browned, then I add about 15 beaten eggs and scramble till done. I also cook my potatoes o'brien separately with taco seasoning. Add cooked potatoes to the sausage egg mixture and spoon onto tortilla shells and top with cheese and salsa for a great breakfast burrito. They freeze well and reheat in the microwave nicely for breakfast on the go.

  9. Deb says:

    If your eggs didn't set be sure to THAW the potatoes and then cook them with the sausage for about 5 minutes before adding the eggs.

Do we cook sausage before frying? ›

Dry the boiled sausages and then put them in a pan of hot oil. Since they are already cooked, you won't need to fry them for very long.

Do you fry both sides of an egg? ›

In both, the whites are set and the yolks are runny. The difference is that over-easy eggs are flipped before removing from the pan, while sunny-side-up eggs only cook on one side.

What oil do you use to cook breakfast sausage? ›

If you are deep frying sausage use coconut oil, olive oil or avocado oil at 375. Used to work great when I worked in catering/food service. If you are pan frying just use 1 tablespoon of general canola cooking oil and just coat the pan. You can also use Pam type cooking spray for this also.

Should I cook sausage or pancakes first? ›

When making these pancakes, you place the sausage on the hot griddle and then pour the batter right over it, so that the sausage cooks right into the pancakes.
