Healthy breakfast skillet with eggs.Easy Breakfast Skillet

Maybe you’ve never thought of making a breakfast skillet out of ground turkey, salsa and eggs, but I’m here to tell you it’s super delicious and well worth the 20 or so minutes it takes to make! For me, I’d prefer to skip the sweeter choices at breakfast and instead go for the savory that’s going to fuel me for the day. This easy breakfast skillet does the trick! It’s also super customizable by adding in whatever else you have on hand to make it a bit more special. My one piece of advice for this is to use a good quality salsa, as a lot of the flavor comes from that.

Ingredients Needed

  • Ground Turkey or Ground Beef
  • Good-Quality Salsa
  • Eggs

The options are endless in terms of what you could add in here! You can add in whatever veggie you may have at home such as:

  • leftover roasted veggies
  • spinach
  • kale
  • tomatoes
  • peppers
  • frozen veggies such as corn

Additionally you could change it up a bit and add in some:

  • spices such as chili powder or taco seasoning
  • canned beans
  • leftover rice

Make Ahead Options

While this is already a pretty simple dish to put together, you can optional prepare a batch of the turkey and salsa ahead of time. It will last in the refrigerator from 3-5 days. In the morning you could either heat it up in a pan, toaster or microwave and fry up an egg to top it off with.

  1. I really wanted to try the ground deer version after reading comments but after thawing out deer meat that was marked ground and wasn’t I used the only other option I had at hand and used a can of Treet meat. I know smh but it looks beautiful and not too shabby in flavor as well. I used homemade salsa and diced in a few extra onions. What a Treet( lol). Thanks

  2. I made this according to the recipe with ground turkey and found it somewhat bland, although I’m sure spices and some veggies would’ve helped. But I tried it as is with ground beef and LOVED it!

  3. I made this with lentils instead of ground meat. Mixed in the salsa and fried an egg on the side since it was just me. Very tasty and filling with lots of protein. Yum.
