Today I'm going to share a Sourdough Skillet Meal Recipe that I found on a blog from Farmhouse on Boone - I've tweaked it a bit using Young Living vitality oils in place of some of the herbs, and it's a winner! 

Sourdough Skillets are a fantastic way to create wholesome one-pot meals that are both nutritious and delicious. With a versatile base and an array of possible fillings, you can customize your skillet to suit your taste and whatever ingredients you have on hand. 

Today, we're going to introduce a twist to this classic recipe by incorporating Young Living Vitality oils to infuse vibrant flavors into every bite. 

Prep Time: 10 minutes 
Cook Time: 40 minutes 
Total Time: 50 minutes 
Servings: 8 servings 

  • 1.5 cups sourdough starter
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1-2 drops of Young Living Basil Vitality oil (substitute for basil)
  • 3 tablespoons butter or coconut oil
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 pound beef
  • 4 cups mixed veggies (such as peppers, red onions, mushrooms, and corn)
  • 1-2 drops Young Living Cilantro Vitality Oil (optional if you're not a cilantro fan)
  • 1 1/2 cups cheddar cheese (optional)
  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. If you're using a cast iron skillet, ensure it's preheated as well to prevent sticking.
  2. Begin by sautéing the beef in the cast iron skillet on the stove until fully cooked. Once done, transfer the beef to a plate and set aside.
  3. In the same skillet, cook the mixed veggies until tender on the stove.
  4. While the veggies are cooking, prepare the sourdough mixture by combining the sourdough starter, eggs, salt, Young Living Basil Vitality oil (substituted for fresh basil in the veggie mix), butter or coconut oil, and baking powder in a bowl.
  5. Once the veggies are cooked, add the beef back into the skillet and season with salt and pepper. Mix well to combine the beef and veggies.  If you chose to use Cilantro Vitality oil, add it now - start with 1 drop (this stuff is really potent) and add more if desired.  If you're not a cilantro fan, leave it out. 
  6. Spread the prepared sourdough mixture evenly over the top of the beef and veggies in the skillet. If desired, sprinkle grated cheddar cheese on top the last 5-7 minutes of baking time.
  7. Bake the skillet in the preheated oven for 25 minutes or until the sourdough topping is cooked through and golden brown.
  • This recipe serves as a base that you can customize according to your preferences. Feel free to experiment with different fillings and toppings.
  • Using a cast iron skillet is recommended for its versatility in going from stove to oven. Alternatively, you can transfer the filling to an oven-safe skillet or baking dish before adding the sourdough topping.
  • If you have discarded sourdough starter, this recipe provides a great opportunity to put it to good use.
Enjoy the delightful fusion of flavors in this Sourdough Skillet Recipe enhanced with the aromatic touch of Young Living Vitality oils!
