"I could either sit there being upset at myself for the rest of the day or move on to do something a little more meaningful. So, to avoid me feeling worse by wasting all the ingredients, I roughly threw everything together in a cast iron skillet and put it in the oven. And that’s how this Swiss Skillet-Baked Eggs happened, from a total disaster and massive frustration to something beautiful and surprisingly delicious, not to mention that it’s ten times easier to make than a soufflé!"

Preparation Time10 min

Cooking Time15 min


  • 6 large eggs, divided
  • 1/4 cup milk or half and half
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon black ground pepper
  • 1/3 cup swiss cheese, shredded
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1 small onion, diced
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 2 large button mushrooms, thinly sliced
  • 1 cup baby kale mix or spinach mix
  1. Preheat oven to 400°F.

  2. Whisk two eggs in a medium bowl until beaten; add milk or half and half, salt and pepper; mix well. Stir in swiss cheese; set aside.

  3. In a 10-inch cast iron skillet, melt butter over medium heat; increase heat to medium-high, add onion and garlic, cook until fragrant, about 2 minutes.

  4. Add mushrooms and greens in the skillet, cook till the greens are just about to wilt, about 1 minute.

  5. Stir in turkey (or ham); pour the cheese and egg mixture into the skillet; quickly arrange and make all ingredients lay evenly in the skillet. Let it cook, undisturbed until the eggs just begin to set, about 45 seconds.

  6. Remove from heat. Use a spoon to make 4 wells in the mixture in the skillet; break an egg into each well; sprinkle with cheddar cheese; baked for 8-10 minutes, or until the egg whites are set and the yolks are still runny.

This skillet breakfast looks tasty. I'm sure a lot of you will agree with me that sometimes from the biggest disaster comes the most surprising things. That is why I maintain to not give up in the kitchen when things go wrong. There's almost always a way to save something and who knows you could be creating something delicious and new.
