This post is sponsored by the Wisconsin Pork Association. As always, all opinions are honest and my own.
Whether you make this sheet pan recipe for a delicious start to a weekend morning for a fun breakfast for dinner, it is going to quickly become a favorite. The bacon, eggs and hash browns all cook together, making it super simple. There are very few active steps, so you can enjoy the morning with your guests or get yourself ready while it bakes. When the timer goes off, it will be time to sit down to a tasty and filling meal!
Bacon and eggs are a classic breakfast combination for good reason. They are absolutely delicious!
Of course it is also a wonderful way to get your morning started off with a great kick of protein. In addition, pork is an excellent source of several vitamins and minerals including thiamin, potassium, and vitamin B6 (you can learn more about the nutritional benefits of pork at pork.org)
If that’s not the first thing on your mind, I don’t blame you. After all, it is that bacon flavor that we all want anyway.
But knowing we are getting some good stuff along with that undeniable taste just helps us to feel that much better about eating it. So go ahead and dig in!
Making everything on a sheet pan has several advantages. The first is that there is only one pan to clean when it’s all said and done.
It also makes it super simple. You can make six eggs, a whole package of bacon and a pile of hash browns without having to keep an eye on several big skillets at once.
There is no splattering, no flipping, no splitting your attention between three things at once. It is just a matter of doing a step, sliding the pan in the oven and setting the timer. Easy peasy!
While that is all super helpful, the best part about the whole thing is that bacon flavor gets to permeate throughout the whole dish. The bacon cooks on top of the hash browns and with the eggs, so you get maximum bacon flavor in every bite.
In my family maximum bacon flavor is what we are after. I am sure you can relate!
Supporting Family Farms
Over the years, the ways farmers raise pigs has changed significantly. Technology, economics and an every growing scientific knowledge base have modified standard practices.
Throughout the waves of change, one thing has remained the same for farmers, their pursuit to raise safe and nutritious food in a responsible manner. After all, their livelihoods are tied to the land and animals in their care.
Raising healthy pigs and using good farming practices results in better outcomes for both the farmer and the consumer. So it is a winning proposition for everyone.
So whether you buy your meat from the local butcher shop or your favorite grocery store, you are supporting farm families. You can learn more at porkcares.org.
