Egg-free Paleo breakfast recipes are my favorite to make. Especially when doing a Whole30 egg-free breakfasts just have to happen at some point for me. They’re easy to throw together, quick to cook, and I swear they get better when you have them the day after. What makes me love skillets even more is that they double as a one pan meal. My favorite! This bacon and veggie egg-free Paleo breakfast is no exception. And hey, you can always put an egg on it!
I like to squeeze the juice from half a lemon into this one. It just makes the whole thing taste so fresh and brings all of the flavors together. I know it doesn’t sound normal for a breakfast skillet, but just trust me on this one. Try it once. I’m willing to bet you’ll love it!
I use red pepper in this skillet most of the time, but I’ve definitely made it with green pepper too. Red peppers are a bit sweeter, but if all you’ve got on hand is a green pepper that’s starting to look sad in the fridge, go ahead and use that one up!
One of the other awesome things about egg-free Paleo breakfast recipes (aside from the love letter I wrote to them at the top), is that really you can add any veggies you have. Or even any meat you have. I’ve made this with ground pork, subbed the spinach for broccoli, you name it. It’s one of my favorite ways to clean out the fridge and still make an edible meal.

When my boyfriend meal preps this Whole30 egg free breakfast, he will throw a hardboiled egg into each individual container. Unlike me, he totally loves eggs and enjoys them every which way. So there’s an idea for meal prepping this meal for you. Also, because the breakfast skillet is already made, it would be a good option for busy mornings because frying an egg would only take a few minutes. It would probably even be ready in the time it took to microwave the breakfast skillet for you to throw the egg on top of!

My fiance and I love to cook together and we are always on the hunt for the next best recipe. We were looking for egg-free options at the time we came across this one and absolutely fell in love. My swapped out potatoes for sweet potatoes and I like to add avocado. It is absolutely heavenly! This is our all-time favorite breakfast recipes out of many that we make. Friends and families who join us agree!
The potatoes do not cook in 3-4 minutes… more like 15-20! This recipe is very misleading.
Hi, Sally! The potatoes do take 15 minutes, you’re correct! I think you misread the recipe as it states: “ONCE potatoes start softening, add in onion, pepper, dill, salt and pepper. Let cook 3-4 minutes until PEPPERS are tender”
Delicious! I call it the “clean out my fridge” hash! Added broccoli, mushrooms, jalapeño, celery, cheese and an over easy egg 🥚! Doing this again! Thanks
Oh that sounds delicious! Thank you so much!!
My husband and I love this recipe! We make it exactly as written and it comes out amazing every time! We eat it for a few days and the leftovers are just as good!! Sometimes we add an over easy egg on top and it creates an even more savory breakfast! Thank you for such and an easy, delicious meal!
Love this! I’m so happy you both enjoyed it 🙂 Thank you so much!!

So happy to find something egg free!!! But as I am just trying to modify eating patterns and do not really “do” Paleo or Whole 30 (more like Whole 28.5), I made some modifications.
First, I used uncured bacon about 6 slices and removed half of the bacon grease. Sauteed the pepper and onion a bit in the bacon grease before adding the potato. Substituted fresh hash brown potatoes (Simply Potatoes which are packaged and available in dairy sections for the potato.) Oh so good. And finally added the bacon at the very end so it would retain its crispiness.
I made this this morning and it’s delicious! So many good flavors. My husband also loved it, and we will definitely be making it again.

This was so super tasty! This is a must make dish. My girlfriend has a dietary restriction that doesn’t allow her to have eggs, so this was perfect!

I’m so glad I came across this simple yet super satisfying and delicious breakfast option.
I’m not paleo even and I love this! A lot of chopping (but maybe I’m just not used to that) but the vegetables are worth it. Thank you so much!
Thank you, Steph!! I’m so glad you enjoyed it! <3 - B

This was so fabulous! Thank you for sharing this recipe. It is so visually appealing too. And the squeeze of fresh lemon was the perfect touch. I’ll be making this pretty often. It’s enough for breakfast the next day too, and I’m betting it will heat up awesomely and be even better.
I’m so glad you love it!! Thank you so much! It’s one of my favorite breakfasts 🙂
All the flavours really pop out at you with all their deliciousness. Are you sure this is healthy!
sooooo delicious and I added green onion. Super yummy for left overs!
This is DELICIOUS!! Even my picky kid liked it, and that’s saying a ton. We aren’t doing full-on Whole 30 so I added a tiny bit of cheese on top and let it melt. Heaven! Thank you for an amazing, eggless breakfast recipe (3/4 of us are allergic to eggs in our house and we get SOOO tired of sweet breakfasts)!
This was so yummy! I was so excited to make this and it definitely was worth it. This will be my healthy go-to breakfast from now on. I will say, I think one package of bacon was a lot for this and maybe add more than 1 large potato but this recipe is super flexible. Another thing I noticed was in the ingredients it says garlic powder, but I didn’t see in the instructions where to add it so I just threw it in with the salt in pepper.
Thank you for posting this!! I love breakfast but I hate eggs so this is so perfect for me!
As strange as it sounds I have had a dream about this breakfast hash – and not while I was on a Whole30! I love that it is a great template and you can swap out the veggies as needed. I haven’t yet swapped out the bacon but I’m sure it’s just a matter of time!
Ahh! Hahaha I LOVE this!! Thank you so much! I love this breakfast hash too. It’s really good with some ground sausage, so give that a try next! <3 - B
