Farmer's Breakfast Skillet


FARMER'S BREAKFAST serves 4-6



This is another one of those recipes that has floated around for so long that I have no idea what I tore it out of. The paper has yellowed, the edges look like they have been gnawed on, but the flavor is the same!

1/4 cup butter
2 cups small cubed uncooked potatoes
1 large bunch green onion, sliced thin
1 cup cubed ham
6 eggs
3/4 teaspoon sea salt
1/2 teaspoon celery salt
1/4 teaspoon white pepper
2 tablespoons heavy cream
1 cup shredded Monterey Jack/Mild Cheddar combo
  • Melt butter in cast iron pan.
  • Add potatoes and onions. Sprinkle with celery salt.
  • Cover and cook over a medium high heat, stirring occasionally until evenly brown and golden, about 20 minutes.
  • Add the ham and cook another 5 minutes.
  • Reduce the heat to low.*
  • Whisk together the eggs, salt, pepper and cream until well blended.
  • Pour egg mixture over ham and potatoes, cover and cook until eggs are almost set, about 10 minutes.
  • Occasionally run a knife of spatula around the edge to allow eggs to run down and not burn.
  • Sprinkle with cheese and cover again until cheese melts.
  • Cut into wedges and serve with toasted Oat Sunflower Bread.
*Using an electric stove, I switch burners and start with a cooler burner at this point since cast iron does not cool down as quickly. I like the cast iron though for the nice crisp edge to the potatoes.

I love kiwi fruit! I no longer have my cast iron skillet as I found it too heavy to lift. I just use light weight ones that can go in the dishwasher.

Also, I'm now a light weight cook. I'm eating a waffle right now with real maple syrup - but the waffle is out of the freezer.

I would seriously eat eggs and bacon and hash browns every single day if given the opportunity. They are always always good.

Now that's a new twist to eggs-omelet! Hi... I am joining for the first time, and apologies if I had forgotten to include the recipe following my name when I enlisted.

My mother makes something like this, only without the cream.
