Greek Style Breakfast Skillet

We love meals in skillets, especially for breakfast or brunch and the family style serving. The Greek style breakfast skillet incorporates this weeks farm shares of sweet potatoes, yellow potatoes, onions and pour farm spinach with farm eggs, feta and Greek oregano. What so wonderful about this recipe is it is very versatile. You can substitute spinach for kale, Greek spices for Indian, Italian or Middle Eastern. Feta for parmesan, cheddar, mozzarella. Vegan, no problem, tofu for eggs, vegan cheese or nutritional yeast, you get where I am going with this. This skillet is your oyster. 😉 It also makes a great dinner option served with a side salad.
