One Pan Breakfast

I love to cook, love it!!!  However, there are some days when I’m lazy and I want to get away with as little effort as possible, but still have something delicious and not from a box.  So after surveying the fridge, I decided to make a spinach frittata, but then I though, I don’t want to fry up everything, then transfer it to another dish to bake.  I know, LAZY!!!  So instead, I decided to just cook it all in the same pan, and guess what….it worked and worked well.  I will say, if you are working with non-stick pans this won’t work since this goes under the broiler and that is a no no for those.

What you will need (and of course you can add/delete whatever veggies or meat you like, this is just what I had)


7 eggs

1/8 c. half-n-half

6 strips of bacon, cut into strips

2/3 c. onion, chopped

1/4 c red pepper, diced

two large handfuls of spinach

1 medium size potato

salt and pepper to taste

Mix the eggs and half-n-half together, set aside.

In an oven safe pan, fry the bacon strips until they start to render some fat, then add the rest of the ingredients and cook over medium heat.  Once the potatoes are soft add the egg mixture.  Do not stir!  Let the eggs settle in with all the other ingredients, if need be, give a little shake, but do not stir.  Cook over med/low to med heat until the sides start to firm up leaving only the top uncooked.  Sprinkle some cheese on top and pop in the oven under the broiler for a few minutes, until the eggs are set on top.
