After I’ve enjoyed a lovely meal, I don’t enjoy spending a lot of time in the kitchen doing dishes. There will always be dish clearing and whatnot, but my favorite is when I don’t have tons of pots and pans to scrub after dinner. One way to avoid a lot of pots and pans, yet still come out with an incredibly delicious meal is to create dinner all in one skillet. I love one skillet meals! Whether you want to serve this for breakfast or dinner, my Sausage, Egg and Potato Skillet will be a real treat.
Because I don’t want to spend a lot of time in the kitchen after meals, I also try to avoid unnecessary time in the kitchen during meal prep. The more time you can save in the kitchen, the more quality time you can spend with those you love. The key to saving time on meals that involve potatoes is to use Tasteful Selections varieties. They are pre-washed and ready for slicing, dicing and cooking up. Tasteful Selections is campaigning to help women rescue moments and spend more quality time with loved ones with delicious time-saving recipes and tips. Along with my one skillet meal, follow the #RescueMoments hashtag for other tips.

Now how about adding some yumminess to those already bright and delicious red potatoes? We are a breakfast-for-dinner kind of family, but if you allow yourself the time to cook up a nice breakfast in the morning then this breakfast skillet will definitely be a hit.
In the skillet you will begin by frying up some flavorful sausage links (of your choice). Once they are mostly cooked, remove from the pan and toss in the red potatoes. Cook until tender crisp before adding the rest of the veggies in. Saute for a few more minutes and add the sausage back in. Really not too complicated. The goal here is to get everything to a desired doneness at the same time.
Once the vegetables and sausage are cooked through, crack eggs over top of the skillet. Add a couple of tablespoons of water to the under side of a lid and quickly turn over onto the pan. The water will help the eggs to steam and create poached eggs. Leave with the lid on for 8-10 minutes, or until the eggs are cooked.
Serve up the skillet with some toast points and some juice and you’ve got one tasty meal! The kids all gobbled this right up so it’s safe to say this is a meal the whole family should enjoy.
