18 Fuss-Free Breakfast Recipes That Kill It in a Skillet

Lazy weekend breakfasts are the best, no question about it. It’s crucial to take a well-deserved break from the usual grab ‘n’ go muffin — you know, the one you end up wolfing down in your car — and lounge in your pajamas savoring a breakfast casserole. If you’ve got a family to feed, you might be thinking that this is all easier said than done. But we’ve got 18 no-hassle skillet breakfasts that will feed the masses while allowing you to kick back.
