I appreciate you so much!

If you don’t like the shredding potatoes, you can use frozen shredded hash browns. But it’s worth the time and effortyou put into shredding your own potatoes. This is a breakfast vegetable and bacon egg bake cast iron skillet recipe that my families favourite.This recipe includes all the breakfast favorites: Cheese, Potatoes, Eggs, Bacon. Plus, it has some delicious veggies that will make you feel less guilty about how amazing it tastes. What’s great about this recipe is that you can make it the night before, when you have more time, you can refrigerate it overnight. Also you have to cook the bacon in advance. Maybe you have some leftover from these rosemary, potato and bacon biscuits. This one pan food is easy, healthy and tasty, you need notice that when you use orange carrots, carrots need a little more time to cook, so slice them very thinly in order to make the flavor tasty. When serve with a cup of orange juice or coffee, it must be the best and perfect breakfast which can totally wake you up! And you’ll feel the difference throughout your day, since you’re more energized.

Next time, I would like to introduce another simple but tasty Cast iron skillet recipe. It is PERFECT Skillet Roasted Red Pepper DIP with Parmesan Garlic Rolls.
