Festive Veggie and Chorizo Skillet

This Veggies and Chorizo Skillet is inspired by a recent breakfast we had during our ski trip.

On our way home from skiing in Killington, VT, Aldo and I stopped at Bob's Diner to have breakfast. I had a bacon-sausage-home fries breakfast skillet with 2 eggs on top, and it was THE. MOST. DELICIOUS. BREAKFAST. EVER.

The breakfast skillet was served in a small cast iron skillet with free coffee refills and genuine smiles from the server. I love it when small town places end up having amazing food.

Inspired by Bob's Skillet, I decided to make a similar dish at home, but just a tad healthier with all the vegetables added in and a lot less grease.

I used chorizo sausage which has a ton of flavor and added a few of my go-to veggies: mushrooms, bell peppers, and grape tomatoes. The whole thing is topped with some cheese and popped into the oven for a few minutes to melt the cheese and really maximize the flavors.

It was good. Good good good. This dish turned out so colorful - and festive!

I used this cast iron skillet for the recipe.

We ate this veggie and chorizo skillet over quinoa. You can also serve this dish over rice, with pasta, or with a fried egg on top.

A runny fried egg would be amazing on this - you can also grab a piece of toast to dip into the yolk and to sop up all the juices.

I am pretty sure this will be my go-to dinner from now on when I don't feel like fussing with dinner. The whole thing took 25 minutes from start to finish, and it was super delicious.
