Welcome to The ULTIMATE 10-MINUTE Breakfast SKILLET recipe. This skillet is loaded with flavors, uses basic ingredients and yup, it comes together in just 10 minutes. Perfect for a busy weekday morning or a relaxed weekend breakfast.

Seriously folks, it does not get any better than this. We’re talking a garlicky tomato sauce with spinach, fresh mozzarella and perfectly cooked eggs. Remember to serve this 10 minute skillet next to a baguette to mop up all that goodness .

When I said basic ingredients, I meant basic ingredients. Bagged spinach, canned tomatoes, fresh mozzarella and eggs. But let me tell yeah, when you combine all these ingredients together, you get a power-house of a dish.

TIPS & TRICKS to make this Recipe: I used cage-free organic eggs, because in my opinion, they have a better flavor. But you can use any eggs you like. I also used bagged spinach, you gotta love this stuff. Pre-cleaned, pre-cut and inexpensive. Remember to pat the ball of fresh mozzarella completely dry with paper towels. This removes the excess water and gives the cheese a better flavor.
