This Bacon Potato Poblano Breakfast Skillet is a one-pan delicious skillet breakfast. Serve on a plate and to with a fried egg and it’s drippy yolk.

Nothing makes my heart go pitter-pat more than a drippy-runny yolk.

I love dunking my toast in it and a savory waffle doesn’t need syrup as long as you serve them with an egg on top. But I especially lurve it when it coats cheesy, potato, bacon and poblano hash. Ya feel me?

I had just gotten home from grocery shopping and I was starving. Which reminds me, never go grocery shopping hyped up on coffee and hungry. It usually doesn’t end well. So it was either the two egg rolls from our Chinese dinner the night before or a quick skillet hash topped with egg and all of its runny yolk goodness. Hmmmm deeecicisons.

Re-warmed eggrolls are always an excellent breakfast/lunch option… but obviously, I went the whole egg and hash route and I didn’t look back. (Except at 10pm when I had the munchies.)

Yolk wins me every single time.

Skillet breakfasts may be my favorite kinds of breakfast on earth. Yup, right next to pancakes, waffles, cereal, French toast, scones, doughnuts, biscuits with sausage gravy and bagels. I think I just like ALL things breakfast.

Got leftover potatoes? Make this skillet dream happen.

Meanwhile I cubed up the leftover potatoes I had saved from dinner Sunday. I just roasted them in a couple teaspoons of olive oil, sprinkled with sea salt and roasted them at 400 for about 45-60 minutes.

Meanwhile fry up a couple eggs. Since I was the only person eating, I made myself two… I think two eggs per person is pretty generous… but serving one egg is fine, do whatever floats your boat.

Once the eggs are done and the cheese is melted it’s time to serve.
