Bacon and Eggs Breakfast Skillet
Chef Brainy
What Started it all:
bacon, eggs

A classic and hearty breakfast dish that combines crispy bacon and perfectly cooked eggs. This recipe is simple, delicious, and perfect for feeding a group of four.


  • 8 slices of bacon
  • 8 large eggs
  • Salt (to taste)
  • Black pepper (to taste)
  • 2 tablespoons of butter or oil (optional, for cooking eggs)
  • Fresh parsley or chives (optional, for garnish)


  1. Place the bacon slices in a large skillet over medium heat.
  2. Cook the bacon until it's crispy, turning occasionally to ensure even cooking.
  3. Once cooked, transfer the bacon to a paper towel-lined plate to drain excess grease. Leave a bit of bacon fat in the skillet for flavor.
  4. In the same skillet, crack the eggs directly into the bacon fat. If preferred, you can remove some of the fat and add butter or oil instead.
  5. Season the eggs with a pinch of salt and black pepper.
  6. Cook the eggs to your desired doneness. For sunny-side-up, cook until the whites are set but the yolks are still runny. For over-easy, gently flip the eggs and cook for an additional minute.
  7. Crumble or chop the cooked bacon into bite-sized pieces.
  8. Arrange the cooked eggs on a serving platter or directly in the skillet.
  9. Sprinkle the bacon pieces over the top of the eggs.
  10. If desired, sprinkle fresh parsley or chives over the top for a pop of color and added freshness.
  11. Serve immediately while hot.
