Baked Egg Skillet {Giveaway - closed}




Have you ever read one of those articles or blog pages where someone shares their list of kitchen essentials?  It seems that one of the items that shows up on every single list is a cast iron or carbon steel skillet.

And then there are those yummy recipes, like this Baked Egg Skillet, that start on the stove and end in the oven.  But with non-stick skillets, those recipes just aren’t possible.  For the longest time I’ve been an utter failure as a cook and blogger because I only have non stick skillets! *GASP* (I kid, I kid)

But guess who just acquired her very own seasoned carbon skillet??  This girl!!  I am so excited!  Using a cast iron skillet made this dish a breeze!  And it was so amazingly delicious.  The flavors are simple, but the dish is satisfying enough for Sunday brunch or a quick, easy brinner. In fact, it is so good, that I’ve already made it twice this week (gotta break in that new skillet, you know)

Is your kitchen missing a seasoned carbon steel skillet? 


I’ve partnered with BigKitchen.com and they would like to give one of you a Lodge Seasoned Carbon Steel Skillet.  




Enter the giveaway after the recipe below!



Baked Egg Skillet
Adapted from Two Tarts

1 tbsp bacon grease or olive oil
2 cups hashbrowns, thawed
½ tsp seasoning salt
1/3 lb asparagus, woody ends snapped off
6 eggs
Salt & pepper
¾ cup extra sharp white cheddar



Stir together the hashbrowns and seasoning salt.

Heat the bacon grease in a cast iron skillet over medium heat.  Add the hashbrowns and spread them into an even layer, pressing down on the top with a spatula to flatten.  Cook for 3-4 minutes or until browned on one side.  Flip the potatoes, in one piece, if possible.  Cook until browned on the second side. 

Remove from heat.  Layer the asparagus on top of the browned potatoes.  Crack the eggs on top and season lightly with salt and pepper.  Sprinkle the cheese over the eggs.

Place in the oven under the broiler for 6-8 minutes or until the eggs are cooked to desired doneness.  I cooked mine for about 7 minutes and they were slightly runny.


Want to win your very own Lodge Seasoned Carbon Steel Skillet from BigKitchen.com?  


This handy 10-inch seasoned steel skillet from Lodge is the first pre-seasoned and ready to use out of the box steel pan on the market. The 12 gauge carbon takes high heat for the perfect browning and searing results and can be used on all heat sources except microwave ovens.  Just like the pre-seasoned cast iron cookware from Lodge, each carbon steel skillet is factory seasoned with their proprietary vegetable oil formula.   Designed with an angle in the handle that is conducive for both stove top and oven cooking, this brutally tough made in the USA skillet is perfect for professional, camp and home use.

  18. I have most of the kitchen items I need, so it was really hard to pick out one I *want*! :) A dutch oven would be very handy. I love my cast iron skillet, and another one would be perfect, since I use mine almost every day. That way I wouldn't have to wash it every night! :)
