A one-pot breakfast that’s ready in a flash! This Cheesy Bacon and Egg Skillet is made with 6 ingredients and only takes 10 minutes to whip up. Creamy and amazing.
My family used VELVEETA® cheese in a ton of recipes when I was growing up. It’s a great dipping cheese; it melts so smoothly there really was no question about which cheese to use when we were making nachos or dip. It was just a given. In fact, any time we needed a cheese to melt beautifully in a recipe we’d reach for the VELVEETA®.
This time, I decided to throw it into an easy breakfast scramble. One that could be whipped up in a matter of minutes for unexpected brunch guests. Do you ever have those? You know…on Sundays when you’re just getting out of the shower and someone sends you a text saying they want to pop over for a bit? They’re right in your neighborhood for whatever reason? Then you’re scrambling to pull yourself together so you’re not answering the door with a towel on your head? Yeah, you need to have this Cheesy Bacon and Egg Skillet in your arsenal for those days. It will alleviate a lot of stress. Five ingredients + VELVEETA® cheese and you have one breakfast that will knock your socks off. Perfect if you’re still wearing the socks you slept in.
This Cheesy Bacon and Egg Skillet takes less time to make than it does for my coffee maker to make a pot of coffee. It’s excellent on its own or served with some multi-grain toast. You could also whip up a batch of Green Juice to serve with it and really up the health factor. Either way, you’ll only spend about 10 minutes cooking and only have one pot to clean. Now…if I could only find a way to dry my hair in that amount of time. 🙂
VELVEETA® lovers know it as Liquid Gold, and it has been a favorite of families since 1928. Known for its smooth, creamy texture and perfect melt, you can use VELVEETA in a variety of recipes – and strike Liquid Gold.

Velveeta brings me back to my childhood! To this day my favorite Mac & Cheese is the one my mom makes with it…its like a time machine!
eggs and cheese are a big yum in my book
Three of my favorite ingredients; cheese, bacon and eggs!
I don’t eat bacon but this cheesy soft egg skillet goodness is winking at me regardless! 🙂
This breakfast would totally start my day off on the right foot! Yummy!
I’m sorry, but what? Unexpected Sunday morning brunch guests that just want to pop over? Lol. Heck no. People need to give me a 12 hour warning if they want to “just” come by 😉
And love this skillet! Nothing better than cheese and bacon. 😀
You had me sold at cheese, bacon and eggs! The perfect breakfast.
You pretty much had me at bacon. Then that ooey gooey cheesiness sealed the deal! I know what I am having this weekend!
Cheesy eggs that take less than 10 minutes to make are right up my alley. Perfect for a busy morning or brunch!
