Are you sick of Thanksgiving foods yet? No? Perfect! Then this Thanksgiving Breakfast Skillet is for you! Sweet potatoes, bacon, cranberries and goat cheese are the main ingredient/flavors in this dish and WOW do they go great together! These dish really encompasses a medley of Fall flavors. I’m not going to lie, there’s a lot going on in this skillet… but it all works together so wonderfully.
I made this Thanksgiving Breakfast Skillet for the first time when my best friend and her boyfriend (now Fiance) came to my house the day after Thanksgiving for brunch. We had mimosas, pancakes, french toast, bacon, coffee… the works! I was so proud of my spread and then I learned that my best friend doesn’t like mimosas… I’m sorry, WHAT?! Very confusing but don’t you worry, we’re still best friends! At least this dish was a hit and that is saying a lot because she’s pretty picky.
To be honest, this dish can be made anytime of the year! It’s the perfect addition to a brunch for a small group. If you’re serving a larger group, you can make this meal in a larger casserole dish and it should work just fine! It’s a great dish because it’s pretty simple. The steps are simple and so are the ingredients. Plus there aren’t really that many ingredients at all! Those are my favorite types of recipes. A few swaps you can make to this recipe:
- Sweet potatoes → Regular russet potatoes
- Canadian bacon → Regular bacon or turkey bacon
- Goat cheese → Any type of cheese but remember you’re paring with cranberries so if you’re not into goat cheese try brie
- Eggs → If you’re vegan you can just omit the eggs and use non dairy cheese
- Cranberries → If you’re not into cranberries I would just omit this! Or you can kick it up a notch and use leftover cranberry sauce from Thanksgiving!
This Thanksgiving Breakfast Skillet is the perfect breakfast or brunch for the family. It’s easy to prepare and something that most people will love! Pairing this dish with mimosas is optional but strongly recommended!
