Sausage Scramble Skillet
Back when we lived in Vermont, on Sunday mornings we used to frequent a great little place in Saxons River called The Golden Egg.
They made the most amazing breakfasts filled with good old fashioned ingredients, homemade fare with grown locally ingredients and they even offered locally raised organic eggs for a mere .50 more. Well worth the 2 quarters!
We all had our favorite go-to dishes.
The Mr. used to get their Mexican Eggs Benedict. The kids, buttermilk pancakes or eggs sunny side up.
Mine however, was this delicious bake of scrambled eggs, fresh veggies and other goodness. All baked and served with sour cream, fresh salsa and homemade toast.
Here is my best version of the Golden Egg’s Scrambled Egg Bake.
Depending on how many people you’re cooking for you will need to adjust the amounts visually for this recipe. It really depends on how hungry you are. I’ve made an enormous pan of this stuff, to have it all eaten by The Mr. and I in one sitting.
I use the following ingredients:
Mushrooms ~ Sliced
Onions ~ Diced
Green and Red Pepper ~ Diced
Tomatoes ~ Diced
Breakfast Sausage ~ Crumbled and Cooked
Diced or Sliced Fresh Potatoes~ Skin on or Off
Cheddar Cheese ~ Shredded
Scallions / Green Onions~ Chopped
Salsa ~ Garnish
Sour Cream ~ Garnish
Start by sauteing your potatoes and then add your onions, peppers and mushrooms. Cook until your potatoes are cooked and crispy. Make sure your vegetables are added in time to cook but before they become mushy.
Set the veggies aside.
Heat oven to 400.
Scramble your eggs. Do not overcook eggs.
Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Place cooked potatoes and vegetables on sheet and then layer with eggs, sausage and cheese
Bake until cheese is nicely melted. Top with chopped scallions and tomatoes.
Serve with sour cream and salsa and hot sauce if you like. A nice hearty side of fresh grainy bread with natural peanut butter…
Even more yum!
It bears mentioning that if you’re ever near Saxons River, Vermont, do stop into the Golden Egg.
I’ve never had lunch or dinner there, but I’d imagine it’s as amazing as their breakfast.
