Dijon Pork Breakfast Skillet (Low Carb and Paleo)

Dijon Pork Breakfast Skillet @lowcarboneday

Today’s recipe is Dijon Pork Breakfast Skillet, which is perfect for breakfast.  My favorite breakfasts are ones I can make using one pan.  I throw some meat, veggies, and seasoning in a pan and it’s the best breakfast.  It’s fast and doesn’t require a lot of prep.  You could even save more time in the morning by cutting up the veggies the night before.  I usually end up making a double batch on the weekends and I eat off of the leftovers all week.  Just reheat and breakfast is served in no time! For those that eat eggs, this dish would be great with an egg on top.
