Weekends are made for breakfast skillets, amiright??? Especially this Southwest style one with an unexpected game-changer – PINEAPPLE.
Clearly my friends and family know me well based off this year’s top 3 birthday presents I received.
My new favorite kitchen tool – my lodge cast iron skillet.
A waffle iron after my last one crapped out on me making these sweet potato waffles.
A standing mixer.
I’ve been putting this cast iron to use more and more, but I always find myself going back to these breakfast skillets. It reminds me of having breakfast at one of my favorite places at home (hellooooo Wilbur Skillet from Turning Point).
You don’t want to skip out on the added pineapple. Follow these directions below and THANK ME LATER.Print
Great for a weekend breakfast, yet easy enough to throw together mid-week before work. You’ll have this recipe on repeat FO SHO.
- 1/2 can of black beans, drained
- 1/2 sweet potato, chopped
- 1/4 cup pineapple, chopped
- 1/8 cup red onion, diced
- 3 Vital Farms Eggs (the color of the yolk on these is INSANE and they’re the tastiest eggs ever)
- 2 TBSP Chosen Foods Avocado Oil (olive oil could work here as well, in addition to just using cooking spray to decrease the fat content in the dish)
- Everything but the bagel seasoning from Trader Joe’s
- Optional – Avocado slices
Preheat Oven to 400 F.
Drain the black beans, chop the sweet potato and pineapple and dice the onion.
Heat up the avocado oil up in the pan over medium/high heat. Add in the onion and sweet potato. Cook for 5-7 min or until the onions are translucent. Add in the pineapple and cook for another 3-5 minutes, being sure to stir around the mixture every now and then. You want the pineapple to caramelize on all sides. Add the black beans.
Before popping the skillet in the oven, make three “pockets” in the ingredients, and crack your eggs into these holes. Transfer skillet from the stove to the oven and bake until you get your desired egg consistency. Finish off with everything bagel seasoning and sliced avocado.
- Equipment needed –lodge cast iron skillet
- If you do not have a cast iron skillet, this can be done in a regular saute pan, but I would recommend cooking the eggs in a separate pan instead of popping it in the oven (unless, of course, your pan is oven safe).
- Feel free to add more or less of the ingredients based on personal preference. Want more fiber?? Add more black beans. Craving cheese? Throw that in there. Hate red onion? I’ll judge you first, but then you can skip it 🙂 GET CREATIVE PEOPLE.
- Topping this with sour cream would be BOMB. Give it a shot and let me know what you think.
