My Cheesy Italian Beef Breakfast Skillet is perfect for meat lovers! First things first. In order to make this amazing Cheesy Italian Beef Breakfast Skillet, you must have made a roast beef the evening beforehand. I know, it’s going to be a hardship to do so, but you are going to have to take one for the team here. I guess you could cook a roast beef overnight in your crockpot and then eat it in the morning – hey man, I am not judging anyone, this Alberta girl loves her red meat – and use it in this skillet. That would work as well, especially if you are cooking for a crowd. This skillet was actually just my way of using up some leftover beef from Sunday dinner.

I had leftover beef one Monday morning and well, it was a Monday. Since Mike and I work at home we are able to have a nice brunch every so often and that day happened to be it. To be honest, people probably assume that we are eating all sorts of amazing food all the time.

Truth be told, we usually skip breakfast, have two coffees and don’t look up from our work until noon. No word of a lie.

Glamorous life, isn’t it?

Once in a while I like to remind myself that I can cook a nice brunch and take the time to treat myself. This was one of those brunches. I used up some baby potatoes that I had in the pantry, some peppers. onions and mushrooms that were in the fridge and mozza.

Always mozza. Real mozzarella that comes in a glorious ball of cheese deliciousness.
