Ultimate Breakfast Skillet (Village Inn Style)

When I ask my husband what he wants for breakfast his response is almost always "the Village Inn Ultimate Skillet!" After a couple months of this I figured I would try and make my husbands favorite breakfast meal at home...such a good wife right?!

4 Russet Potatoes pealed and cubed
1/2 a Green Bell Pepper chopped
1 1/2 cups Diced Ham 
(I used Turkey Ham since I don't eat pork...the hubby didn't even notice a different!)
1/2 cup sliced Mushrooms
1/2 a small Onion chopped
Eggs and bacon for the side

 Boil the potatoes in a pot until they are fork tender, about 10 minutes.

While the potatoes are boiling chop up the ham, mushrooms, green pepper and onion.

When the potatoes are done boiling drain the water from the pot then place the potatoes in a bowl lined with a paper towel to help soak up excess water.

Once the potatoes are fairly dry brown them in a pan with 1 tablespoon butter and a bit of vegetable oil. Add a bit of salt and pepper to taste.
Once the potatoes are browned place them in a bowl and set them aside.

In the same pan add a bit more vegetable oil then saute the ham, mushrooms, green pepper and onion until the onion is translucent and the peppers are soft which will be about 10 minutes.

Add the potatoes back to the pan and gently mix everything together well. Let this sit in the pan on low heat while you make the eggs and cook the bacon.

After everything is cooked plate the potato mixture then top it with a bit of shredded cheese and your eggs. Serve with bacon on the side and a nice hot cup of coffee!
