Italian Sausage and Peppers Breakfast Skillet



Okay, I know this is not quite as cute as teddy bears on cupcakes but it does make for a yummy breakfast or brunch dish.



Here is what I used for this great breakfast skillet:
  • Six eggs (My sixth egg is MIA in this photo.)
  • 1 Italian Turkey Sausage link, grilled and diced
  • 1/2 cup red and green pepper, diced
  • 1/2 cup jack cheese (You can use Italian cheeses I was out so I did a little substituting.)
  • 1 tbsp sliced green onion
  • 1 tsp fresh spicy basil, chopped
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 few dashes of hot sauce for a little kick!


Saute your sausage and peppers in a tbsp of butter for 2 or 3 minutes.



Next, add in your egg and cook thoroughly, stirring often.



Top with cheese, green onions, and basil.
(I threw a little dollop of plain Greek Yogurt on there too.)
How easy is that!!
Tomato would be awesome on here also, unfortunately, I was fresh out!

I am on a little vacation so I haven't been posting much for this week. I may put up some photos of my trip on my other blog as I take them. Hope everyone is having a nice week!

I'm up for this any time of day. Love this kind of meal. It turns out a little differently every time you make it.

Molly said...

You know how good you are? I didn't read my bloglist for a couple days but I did cruise past the titles and yet somehow your title wiggled into my brain and I ate something VERY similar to this yesterday for breakfast! LOL!

I LOVE this kind of breakfast with all those flavors working in perfect harmony. I lovelovelove fresh basil.

Oh and guess what? The zinnia seeds I planted on Saturday have already sprouted! I couldn't believe my eyes.

Claudia said...

I love this - I do a version for dinner - no eggs - but this would be great (as stated previously) for any meal. This was made for the long Memorial Day weekend. Mmmm.

Tara said...

Eggs make the best dinners, too! Looks yummy!

I love egg dishes. I get the Egg Beaters (egg whites) at Costco and I don't really love them plain, but they would be delicious with this. Hopefully this recipe will fare better than the baked oatmeal :)

Julia said...

That looks miles better than the Marie CAlendars cornbread mix I poured water on and baked this morning. I only wish my family would eat veggies or more creative things for breakfast meals. But I guess there is never a better time to start trying.

I did not get to try it but Suzi made your chicken from Cinco De Mayo and said it was AWESOME!!

When I get organized cooking again and dont feel so scattered I will attempt it too.

I hope you are well and I can see you are enjoying your spring. :)

Bye for now.

I made this this morning and it was gooood!!!!
