Sweet Potato Breakfast Skillet

This post may contain affiliate links. Please read my disclosure policy.



I love quick and simple. It’s pretty much my favorite combo ever. I’ve been in a huge “breakfast for dinner” mood here lately, and wanted a simple and quick solution to this problem. Breakfast skillets are just awesome. Let’s be honest. When you can bake everything in one dish (and proceed to eat it straight out of the dish), it’s a really good day. This is the perfect hearty meal, any time of day. With Mother’s Day right around the corner, this sweet potato breakfast skillet is the perfect brunch item. I also love it for a weeknight meal because it’s cheap and effortless (another favorite combo of mine ;))! So anyway, it’s been a pretty lazy week around these parts. My sister got in on Saturday, and besides working here and there, we’ve been relaxing most of the time. I love it when you get the chance to do absolutely nothing. This doesn’t happen very often. I’m going to keep things short and sweet today, so I hope everyone is having a fabulous week and are looking forward to the weekend. I know I sure am!







Beer Love:
Beer: BRU Handbuilt Ales’ Citrum IPA
Brewed By: BRU Handbuilt Ales
Style: American IPA
ABV: 7.2%
Description: BRU is one of my new favorite breweries on the planet. Not often (especially in the Boulder, CO area), do you find good beer and good food in one place. I’m always looking for places where the two collide. BRU is one of our go-to places to hang out lately, and their beer is just fantastic. This is why I decided to pair this sweet potato breakfast skillet with their Citrum IPA. I like IPAs with super savory dishes (especially when they have a little bit of a kick) and there is a ton of “savory” going on in this breakfast skillet. You get a little bit of a kick from the sausage and the IPA really compliments that. This IPA in particular has a lot of citrusy and piney notes and really enhances the freshness of the sweet potato and herbs. It’s a great pairing! If you are unfortunate enough to not be able to get your hands on a bottle of this delicious beer, try another great IPA (preferably one with a lot of citrusy and piney notes). Enjoy!

  1. This looks delish and I agree breakfast for dinner is the best, especially when it’s made in a skillet! I just happened to buy a sweet potato this week, might have to make this instead of the usual Thursday night frittata.

  2. This breakfast skillet sounds delicious! Love those cracked eggs on top. yum! Hope you have a fun visit with your sister. My favorite vacations are the ones where I do pretty much nothing too : )
