I love breakfast foods.
I think most people love breakfast foods, whether it be for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. If you meet a person who doesn’t like breakfast foods, I would be a little weary of them. It’s like their brain didn’t finish developing or something.
This recipe is really easy and quick to throw together. Turkey sausage is such a great substitute for pork sausage. It’s more lean and less expensive. It’s a little sacrilege, but we don’t eat a lot of ground beef. We substitute turkey for just about everything (except for hamburgers, of course). I got the eggs I used from a friend who has chickens. The yellow color of the yolks compared to store-bought eggs is quite striking. It’s a vibrant and deep yellow. The cooked red peppers and fresh thyme add massive flavor.
- 1 lb turkey sausage
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 5 eggs
- 1/2 onion
- 2 tablespoons milk
- 1 red pepper
- Fresh thyme, leaves separated from the stem
- Salt and pepper to taste
- Spray a medium to large pan with non-stick spray and brown the turkey sausage. This requires medium high to high heat. Season with salt and pepper to layer flavors.
- Drain the sausage and place on a plate lined with paper towels to soak up any extra grease.
- Add the olive oil, thyme, chopped onion, and red pepper to the pan, and cook until the onions are translucent and the peppers are soft.
- Add the eggs and milk to a large bowl and whisk until well combined.
- Add the egg mixture to the pan.
- Add the sausage back to the pan, and stir.
- Continue stirring and folding the eggs until they are cooked. We used eggs we got from a friend, which is why the eggs look so yellow in the picture.
- Season with more salt and pepper.
- Serve hot and enjoy!
