This delicious Cowboy Breakfast Skillet with Sunny-Side-Up Eggs recipe uses one skillet to make breakfast for four people. I love cooking in cast iron skillets. They are so durable and last forever. They can also go right from stove top to oven and even under the broiler. I have a Lodge skillet, which you can find here.

I love breakfast and believe it should be the heartiest meal of the day. This breakfast skillet recipe is packed with substance and great flavor. It will definitely make breakfast colorful and interesting. This cowboy breakfast is hearty and will give you tons of energy for the day.

This egg skillet is made with sunny-side-up eggs, but you can make them scrambled if you prefer. Sunny-side-up means the eggs are cooked just until the whites are set and the yolk is still runny. So when you serve it up and break the yolk, it almost makes like a “sauce” for the meal.
