    I have been searching for an awesome one dish breakfast recipe. My go to is a grits, egg, cheese and sausage casserole. I need ideas. I want to expand my horizons on breakfast food. I don't mind taking the time cook in the morning.

    So, please help me out with your breakfast recipes.

    Here's a recipe: Cook 1 lb. of bacon in a cast-iron skillet

    That's all I got.

    Here is mine. Copied from FenderGyrl's thread, "Sunday Breakfast", here is my, Mulligan Skillet variation:

    My favorite breakfast in the summertime is when we have guests and I drag out a huge iron skillet that I cook outside on the BBQ/side burner.

    My Montana Mulligan Skillet:

    I get the main BBQ going and start baking 5 or 6 potatoes wrapped in foil on the top rack. Don't need to fully bake them, but this just speeds up the already lengthy process like chopping and slicing stuff.
    I first cook a bunch of bacon in a separate skillet on the side burner. This will wake up the guests.
    Set aside bacon to be chopped.
    Then sauté chopped red and yellow bell peppers and chopped onion in some of the bacon drippings.
    I set that skillet inside the BBQ and pull out the potatoes and start frying them in the huge skillet using the any leftover bacon drippings.
    As the potatoes are nearly done (by this time all of the guests are up and enjoying coffee out on the deck), I squeeze them to one side and toss in half a dozen eggs.
    Cook the eggs like over easy fried eggs and then shred them apart.
    Mix in the bacon after being chopped, the sauté bell pepper and onion.
    Flatten mixture and cover the entire top with thin layer of cheddar cheese. By this time everyone is out on the deck taking in the views, clean brisk mountain air and enjoying some coffee and conversation.
    Cover, turn burner to low.
    Serve in about five minutes by cutting like pie wedges.
    No matter how much I cook, there are never leftovers.

    Enjoy.

    Biscuits and sausage gravy is a big winner here.

    Cook your sausage plus 2 extra pieces for the gravy. Leave about 2 tablespoons of sausage fat in the pan. Sprinkle in 2 tablespoons of flour and mix well with the fat. Wisk in a cup of milk and heat to boiling for two minutes - you have to cook the flour. Scape the bottom of the pan while this is happening. You get a lot of extra flavor from the bits that stuck to the pan. Crumble up those extra pieces of sausage and stir them in. It's done now.

    You are on your own for the biscuits. If you don't want to go from scratch, Pillsbury Grands from the refrigerator case at the store are pretty good.

    4 Eggs
    1/4 cup Milk
    1/4 Cup Diced banana/bell/whatever peppers and onions (I prefer red onions myself)
    1/8 cup of grated cheese of your choice (I prefer Pepper Jack)
    1/8 cup of bacon bits or your own cooked bacon strips chopped up

    Dice up one good sized potato, throw in with the above then mash

    Take these ingredients, mash 'em all up together and make a patty

    Throw in a greased up hot iron skillet (I prefer EVO)

    Fry up to a golden brown

    Serve.

    The above makes one good-sized serving for one hungry man - Me.

    Adjust your amounts accordingly for multiple servings.

    You're welcome!

    Cinnamon spice oatmeal with 2 oatmeal chocolate chip cookies broken up in it. The texture and flavor is great...like eating a bowl of cookie dough.

    You might be the kind of guy who should visit a website called "Mr. Breakfast" which only talks about breakfast food and has over 160 oatmeal recipies alone.

    60% orange juice (frozen concentrate ok)
    40% champagne (most any type)
    Willie Nelson.

    Not being too flippant, I just can't do much besides tacos for breakfast.

    Cooked this for my 95 year old mom last Saturday. She has a big appetite for a little ole lady! I cooked tomatoes for awhile before adding the eggs and the hash browns have chopped onions. The fruit is pineapple and blue berries.

    I'm glad your mom is still shoveling it in (and hope you know that's a good thing)
    My mom picks at the tray and rarely leaves less than half of it behind when it's taken away.
    Amazingly, ten months in at this care facility, she hasn't wasted away.

    Back to breakfast...
    Cold - a cup of yogurt w/ a cup of granola poured of the the top.
    Banana slices or blueberries optional

    Hot - milked out rice w/ raisins, cinnamon & brown sugar
    alt - oats w/ raisins etc (pro-tip plump up the raisins by putting them in the oat water)

    i dont know if its bestr but i like it!

    get the highest quality single source ground beef you can find, with lots of fat in it of coarse

    get the highest quality egg you can

    make a patty that will be the perfect size after cooking for the optimal bun to meat ratio

    fry the patty on high and fry the egg so the yolk is 3/4 runny

    put the patty with the egg on top on a martins potato flour bun

    salt and pepper is applied at the various stages

    enjoy!

    yes, a healthy appetite is a good thing for the elderly, no question. The way she’s going, I don’t doubt she’ll be a centennial. All the best to your mom.

    I got a tip from a customer at my grocery store one time. I used to carry these small peppers that came in a bag. Mini sweet peppers.

    So take those peppers and dice them up REALLY fine. To where they'll basically cook down to nothing. Throw in some sausage and get that cooked up too. Then make gravy (which I never can do, but my fiance is pretty good at it)

    Then my dad had a coworker give him a recipe called billion dollar biscuits, which you can google. It's basically biscuits made with some 7 up and sour cream. Makes a good biscuit. There are betters out there, but these are quick and easy.

    Something about those peppers finely diced and cooked down to nothing made that the best biscuits and gravy I've ever had.

    Cook 1/2 pound sausage, cook two eggs, make pancakes (with bisquick, one cup bisquick, 1/2 cup milk and one egg mix ingredients together. Cook at 400 on grill two minutes on each side.) eat.

    The pancakes is 1/2 their recipe but there is only two of us.

    Favorite breakfast recipe 2018-19
    • Go to Variety’s restaurant in N Canton.
    • Ask if Sebastian is working today
    • Order eggs over medium with some other things or an omelette, resting easy that it will be perfectly prepared.
    • Cut the toast on the bias (cutting toast is not their style)
    • Eat your breakfast slowly while reading TDPRI on your iPad
    • Pay your bill and leave an over generous tip

    I liked this post until the OJ part. I would use a real orange with the guts and all, or maybe eliminate it completely, and substitute nutmeg or cinnamon.

    I do make sure we have OJ with lots of pulp... As a kid I discovered that if I mixed milk and Oj I'd have a liquid creamsicle popsicle, perhaps that's the motivation for adding a bit of the orange nectar.
