Potatoes Cheese and Eggs in pan

Sometimes it’s extra delicious when food is served in a single portion skillet.

Like personal size pan pizzas, or sizzling fajitas served in your very own little skillet at a restaurant.

And single skillet servings can be made for breakfast too.

When I’m really hungry for breakfast or brunch I make this potato egg and cheese scramble and it really hits the spot.

 

And it’s a great idea for the Holidays.
