One-Pot Wonder: A complete, easy breakfast in one skillet

When I have the time in the morning, I skip my usual fast-paced toast, juice and coffee breakfast and instead prepare a more elaborate, complete breakfast.

Free mornings rarely happen to me, but when one does, I make sure breakfast is going to be special and delicious. That doesn’t mean, though, that I’m willing to spend hours preparing it — just a few minutes of precise timing in cooking everything I want to eat in one, single skillet.
