4 Healthy Breakfast Skillet Recipes

4 Healthy Breakfast Skillet Recipes

When I was in University, there was a breakfast diner across the street from the main building. My study group and I would typically skip the first class to frantically study for an exam or finish our assignments due that day. The comfort of a greasy breakfast skillet and a cup of strong black coffee was always the perfect solution to start the day right. However, in hindsight it was not the healthiest breakfast, it would make you want to have a nap right after, and I don’t think my digestion could handle that today.

However, the breakfast skillet always meets that desire for carbs, fats, protein, and gooey cheese. We can all fall into a breakfast rut of smoothies and overnight oats which gets a bit mundane after a while. I dared to ask the question, “can I healthify that greasy diner skillet?”. I set out and after a few failed attempts I have 4 Healthy Breakfast Skillet recipes for you that balance nutrition and taste. From the loaded veggie skillet to the cleaned-up meat-lovers skills, or the quick and easy Turkey Skillet for weekday morning to a gut-loving greens skillet which supports digestive functioning thanks to the fermeneted sauerkraut. There is something for everyone. Each recipe below makes 1-2 servings (based on how hungry you are). Enjoy
