Sausage, Potato, and Zucchini Breakfast Skillet


  • 3 medium red or yukon gold potatoes diced into bite-sized pieces
  • ½ tablespoon vegetable oil
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • Sausage of choice--we have used both ground sausage and sliced smoked sausage here and both were great!
  • 2-3 zucchini squash diced into bite-sized pieces
  • 1 red bell pepper seeded and diced
  • 1 small onion sliced into half moon slices
  • 2-3 cups broccoli florets
  • 4-6 eggs for frying
  • Grated cheese for serving--sharp cheddar, feta, pepper jack or whatever your favorite is works here!
  • Seasoning salt and fresh ground pepper to taste


  1. Combine the diced potatoes, vegetable oil, and salt in a large microwave-safe bowl. Microwave on high power for 10 minutes, stopping to stir about every 2 minutes. While the potatoes are softening in the microwave, brown sausage in a skillet and remove to a paper-towel lined plate to drain.
  2. Wipe excess grease out of skillet and add onion. Cook for 3-5 minutes or until translucent. Add red bell peppers, drained softened potatoes, broccoli, and zucchini. If needed, add another tablespoon of olive oil. Season generously with seasoning salt and pepper to taste. Saute veggies for about 5 minutes, or until softened.
  3. Add sausage back to skillet and heat until warm. Remove from heat and top each serving with a fried egg and grated cheese. Serve immediately or portion into microwave safe containers for meal prep.
  4. Serves 4-6
