Cheesy Egg Skillet

I always eat breakfast. In fact, if I skip it I find myself feeling faint and lightheaded and eventually sick. So after my coffee, more often than not, I have some form of eggs for breakfast. Whether it’s soft boiled, hard boiled, an egg sandwich, or as in this case, sunny side up, I love eggs in many forms.

This cheesy egg skillet is a variation of the Mexican eggs recipe I found on Sargento’s website. Sargento uses red or green bell pepper, onions and mushrooms topped with their 4 cheese Mexican shredded cheese blend. I always have a freezer bag with diced onions, green pepper and mushrooms to use in omelets and on pizza, so I used that instead of their suggestions. I did have some of their 4 cheese Mexican blend in the bottom drawer of the fridge, so it was a perfect choice for breakfast today.

Sargento did compensate me for the time I dedicated to making this recipe and putting this post together for you, however my opinions on flavor and preparation are 100% mine. :)
