Easy and Fast Cast Iron Skillet Breakfast Scramble

Happy Fri-YAY!

Last night I took Adeline out for a stroller jog and we ended up covering our two mile loop, and ran almost the entire time! It felt absolutely amazing, and equally miserable to run again. Getting back into shape is always something I very much have a love/HATE relationship with! Anyone else relate??

Today though I just wanted to pop in and share a quick recipe I’ve been making at home for breakfast on the days when I’m craving something a little heartier than usual. This is super, super easy to make, and cooks quickly so you won’t be starving for long. I’m no foodie or recipe creator, but I do think this scramble is quite delicious!

Easy and Fast Cast Iron Skillet Breakfast Scramble

We both love cooking with our cast iron skillet, and I’ve always been a fan of using them for breakfast. There’s no replacement for a perfectly seasoned cast iron skillet full of (let’s face it) the best meal of the day!

Here’s what I used:

  • extra virgin olive oil
  • 4 eggs
  • 6 small red potatoes, diced
  • diced yellow onion
  • minced garlic, salt, and pepper to taste
  • shredded cheddar cheese

Here’s what I would have also used if I’d had it on hand:

  • diced green bell pepper
  • sausage or bacon
  • possibly substitute diced sweet potato

First I boiled the potatoes for a few minutes until mostly soft. (Soft enough for a fork to easily pierce). Then I drained, and diced them, and added to the cast iron skillet, along with a little bit of extra virgin olive oil. I let them cook in the skillet for maybe 5-7 minutes on medium heat until they started to brown/crisp around the edges. Give or take, this is all just really up to your own judgement.

Then I added my onions, minced garlic, salt, and pepper. I turned down the heat slightly, so my eggs wouldn’t scramble too quickly.

Next, I cracked open my 4 eggs, and added to the potatoes. I also immediately added my cheese.

I scrambled the eggs, stirring into the potato mixture until everything was cooked perfectly and totally mixed together.

I let everything sit on low heat for maybe another minute or two then took it off the heat and served it up!

easy breakfast idea

I would have loved to have added some sort of vegetable and a meat if I’d had it on hand, so next time I would add it for sure.

It made plenty for a big bowl for myself – but would definitely make enough for two people if you like to share.

      It’s so easy – I feel like you can throw anything into a cast iron skillet and call it a meal 😉
