One of our goals for 2013 is to fuel our bodies with more REAL food. Here is a recipe for a delicious sausage and veggie breakfast scramble that keeps you feeling full and energized all morning! Feel free to substitute turkey sausage for pork sausage, or to leave out the sausage and add more veggies depending on your own preferences.
- Yellow Onion – Diced
- Garlic – Minced
- Red Pepper – Diced
- Ground Sausage
- Baby Spinach
In a large skillet saute the onion and red pepper for about 5 minutes over medium heat. Once the onion and pepper have softened add your garlic. Saute for another minute or 2.
Add your sausage and cook through with the onions, pepper and garlic.
Once the sausage is cooked drain any excess oil and then add your eggs. Be sure to stir and mix the scramble so the eggs don’t stick or overcook.
Once the eggs are nice and fluffy throw in a few handfuls of spinach and stir until the spinach is wilted, about 1-2 minutes.
Note: I did not include the amount of each ingredient because with recipes like this I tend to just eyeball it and never know the exact measurements. I believe with this recipe I used 1/2 an onion, 1/2 a red pepper, 2 cloves of garlic, 1/2 a pound of sausage, 3 eggs, and 2 handfuls of spinach. This amount made a nice sized breakfast for my husband, our 4 year old, our 1 year old, and myself. Next time I want to throw in some broccoli, I feel like it would be even more delicious with broccoli! This recipe is great because it will work with a large variety of ingredients, play around with it until you find what you like!
