One of my favorite things to do on a lazy Saturday morning is to whip up a fun breakfast! Lately I’ve been really into these Savory Breakfast Pans! They’re so easy to make and the options are endless! Plus this is a great dish to serve to a group and there’s a little something for everyone in each bite. We made ours with bacon, o-brien-style sweet potatoes, sauteed dandelion greens, torn and buttered bread, and of course finished them off with lots of runny yolk eggs! Another thing I love about this dish is that you can make most the of the components ahead of time and can just throw everything into a pan together the morning that you want to eat it. I also really love this dish with breakfast sausage, charred broccoli rabe and lots of shredded cheese. We omitted the cheese for today’s recipe (crazy, I know), but feel free to load it on because cheese only makes things better. :) Enjoy! xx, Jenny
