To begin making the Skillet Potato And Eggs first preheat the oven to 180 C.
Meanwhile place an oven-safe Cast Iron Skillet on medium heat. Add olive oil, garlic, sliced onion and scallion whites to the oil and saute until translucent.
Add both potatoes to the pan and toss them along with a little salt. Continue to saute until the potatoes turn golden brown and tender.
Next, add the Italian herbs, chopped parsley and pepper, and add additional salt if needed.
Make 4 wells/holes in the potato mixture and break an egg into each well.
Place the skillet into the oven bake for 10 to 11 minutes or until egg whites are completely set and yolks begin to thicken.
