One-Pan Breakfast

Want a quick and easy but impressive breakfast to serve any day of the week? Here’s your answer. Enjoy restaurant quality without the complex techniques!

This is one of Chef Kenzie’s all-time favorite one-pan breakfast recipes to whip up for Sunday brunches or family breakfast occasions. It takes less than 30 minutes start-to-finish, with only 10 minutes of prep time.

Although the pork and eggs combo is Chef Kenzie’s favorite – you can certainly get creative with your own ingredients. Check out the “Notes” section under the recipe for ideas to adapt this recipe to use your favorite proteins. Then, choose your favorite non-starchy vegetables to make the dish truly shine! Here are a few suggestions to get your creativity going…

  • 5 ounces chicken thighs + 1 cup cauliflower + 1 cup carrots (season with curry powder and turmeric)
  • 4 ounces salmon filet + 1 cup parsnips + 1 cup broccoli (season with fresh dill)
  • 1 serving Beef Meatballs + 1 cup red pepper + 1 cup tomatoes (season with chile peppers and/or chili powder and paprika)

Make it Even Quicker

Better yet, make this one-pan breakfast even quicker by using leftovers. You can use leftover protein from last-night’s dinner to re-purpose and serve for breakfast the next day. You can even use leftover roasted vegetables. Just reheat, prepare an egg, and serve.
