Breakfast in a Skillet ~ {Recipe}

A couple of months ago, I was in London, Ont., visiting with my son.  While there,  a friend of his mentioned a Breakfast Skillet recipe she makes and how delicious it was.  It sounded like something our family would really enjoy so I asked if she would mind sharing the recipe, as I wanted give it a try.

She sent me the recipe and we have now made it a couple of times; it is so delicious! It is also very simple and a little different from the regular Breakfast Bakes, in fact, this may be our new go to recipe for Christmas breakfast.

The following is an adaptation of Veronica’s recipe.  If you were having more than four people for breakfast, you could easily double this and make in two baking dishes or one larger pan.

Breakfast Skillet
Recipe type: Breakfast

  • 2 - 3 Tbsp. Olive Oil
  • ⅓ loaf bread (I used egg bread) torn into bite sized pieces.
  • 3 green onions, finely sliced

  • salt & pepper
  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
  2. Place tomato halves, in a single layer, in a greased 9 x 9 baking dish.
  3. Drizzle with a little olive oil and season with salt and pepper.
  4. Roast for approximately 30 minutes, until tomatoes are soft and starting to caramelize.
  5. While tomatoes are roasting, place torn bread pieces and green onions in a large bowl, drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper; toss to coat.
  6. Remove tomatoes from the oven and add bread mixture to baking dish, toss gently to combine.
  7. Form four hollows within the bread mixture and add 1 egg to each.
  8. Sprinkle with cheese.

As always, if you have any questions at all, please feel free to ask and I will do my very best to answer!
