Skillet with Vegetables, avocado, crispy potatoes, and eggs

Skillet Saturday

Skillet Saturday is another favorite non-official holiday of mine. It’s like a pretty salad full of crispy potatoes and flavor. It’s so filling and heavy that it feels unhealthy, but it’s really not bad for you.

One of my favorite orders at a breakfast restaurant is a vegetable Skillet. You get your money’s worth and it keeps you satisfied for a majority of the day. A side of pancakes to share is key in order to have a taste of both sweet and savory at the same time.
