Breakfast Skillet

First, cut the potatoes. almost in a cubed shape. Follow directions on seasonings package to coat potatoes and put in microwave.
While the potatoes are cooking, brown breakfast sausage. Set aside.
Next, scramble the eggs, add the milk and cook. Set the scrambled eggs in the bowl with the breakfast sausage.
When the potatoes are done, take them out of the steamer bag and add them to the sausage and eggs. Mix well, turning the mixture instead of beating. (You don't want to turn it into mush!)

This is my husband's favorite breakfast. He even requested it for his birthday dinner. It is pretty simple, and sooo good. You will love the smell of the potatoes - it's the best part.

Skillet makes 3-4 servings.
