Ham and Apple Skillet Recipe

"Here are all the breakfast favorites—hash browns, eggs, ham and cheese—baked together in one pan," notes Patty Kile from Elizabethtown, Pennsylvania. Reduced-fat cheese, fat-free milk and lean meat help trim the fat, while chopped apple adds a hint of sweetness to this easy-to-fix skillet breakfasts.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 15 min. Bake: 35 min. YIELD:6 servings


  • 3 cups frozen O'Brien potatoes, thawed
  • 1 large apple, peeled and chopped
  • 1/4 cup chopped onion
  • 1/2 to 1 teaspoon rubbed sage
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 1 cup diced fully cooked lean ham
  • 1/2 cup shredded reduced-fat cheddar cheese, divided
  • 4 eggs
  • 1-1/2 cups fat-free milk
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt


  • 1. Press potatoes between paper towels to remove moisture; set aside. In a nonstick ovenproof skillet, cook the apple, onion and sage in water over medium heat until apple and onion are tender. Stir in potatoes and ham; heat through. Sprinkle with half of the cheese. Remove from the heat.
  • 2. In a large bowl, whisk the eggs, milk and salt; pour over potato mixture (do not stir). Sprinkle with remaining cheese. Bake, uncovered, at 350° for 35-40 minutes or until the center is set and a knife inserted near the center comes out clean. Yield: 6 servings.
