You Are the Chef: Savory Ground Beef and Eggs Skillet

Welcome back to “You Are the Chef”! Today, we are spicing up your culinary repertoire with a protein-packed, savory dish that combines the rich flavors of ground beef with the classic comfort of eggs. Ideal for breakfast, brunch, or a hearty dinner, this skillet recipe promises to satisfy those savory cravings and provide a wholesome meal in no time.


  • 1 lb ground beef
  • 6 large eggs
  • 1 medium onion, finely chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 bell pepper (color of your choice), diced
  • 1 tomato, diced
  • 1 tsp smoked paprika
  • 1/2 tsp cayenne pepper (adjust to your heat preference)
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 2 tbsp olive oil or unsalted butter
  • Fresh parsley or cilantro, for garnish
  • Optional: Grated cheese (cheddar, mozzarella, or your favorite blend)


  1. Sauté the Basics: In a large skillet, heat the olive oil or butter over medium heat. Add onions, garlic, and bell pepper. Cook until the onions turn translucent, about 3-4 minutes.
  2. Brown the Beef: Add the ground beef to the skillet, breaking it apart with a spatula. Cook until browned, ensuring there are no pink bits left. Drain any excess fat, if needed.
  3. Season and Simmer: Add the diced tomatoes, smoked paprika, cayenne pepper, salt, and pepper. Mix well and let it simmer for a few minutes, allowing the flavors to meld together.
  4. Egg Nests: Make small wells in the beef mixture with the back of a spoon. Crack an egg into each well. Cover the skillet and let the eggs cook to your desired level. For runny yolks, 4-5 minutes should suffice, but let it cook longer for more well-done eggs.
  5. Final Touch: If you’re using cheese, sprinkle it over the top in the last 2 minutes of cooking. Once done, garnish with fresh parsley or cilantro.

Nutritional Highlights:

  • Ground Beef: A great source of essential nutrients including iron, zinc, and vitamin B12.
  • Eggs: Packed with high-quality proteins and an array of vitamins and minerals.

Chef’s Tips:

  1. Variation: For an added kick, incorporate some chopped green chilies or jalapeños.
  2. Serving Suggestion: This dish pairs wonderfully with crusty bread or toasted tortillas. You can also serve it with a simple green salad for a refreshing contrast.
