Goat Cheese Breakfast Skillet

Oh breakfast, we love thee. Sometimes we are in the mood for some amazing Southern Biscuits and Gravy or the simple decadent Savory Sweet Potato Waffles. We love to eat breakfast foods for dinner (because it’s just that good!) and one of our favorites is this simple, delicious (and nutritious!) breakfast skillet!

Layers of spinach, egg, mushrooms, goat cheese and whole grain bread make this dish soo flavorful, filling and perfect for breakfast and dinner! We really like to make this Hearty White Oat Loaf the day before and use it to scoop up all of the drippings from the eggs!

One of the things we love most about this meal is how simple it really is – we can whip it together on a whim and Lincoln really likes it! When we make it for Lincoln we take out his mushrooms – he’ll eat almost anything on the planet but mushrooms are a hard no for him!!

We hope you enjoy this meal as much as we do!

  • 8 oz baby bella mushrooms washed and thinly sliced
  • 3 tbsp bacon grease or salted butter
  • 10 oz baby spinach 1 store bag equivalent
  • 4 eggs
  • 1/3 cup crumbled goat cheese substitute: feta
  • 8 slices whole grain bread toasted, optional
  • salt and pepper to taste


  • Place 3 tbsp of the bacon grease in a skillet on medium heat for 30 seconds. Place the sliced mushrooms in and cook for 5-6 minutes.
  • One at a time, in large handfuls, place the spinach in the skillet and stir until it wilts. Turn heat down to low.
  • In a separate pan, place the remaining bacon grease in a pan on medium heat. Cook the 4 eggs side by side, season with salt and pepper and cover with a lid. Remove the lid from the eggs once they are cooked "over easy".
  • If you are using toast, you can place the spinach egg mixture directly onto the toast and then place the egg on top and sprinkle with goat cheese.
