Turkey sausage + eggs + avocado + broccoli + cheese + english muffin + coffee/tea + banana = the Breakfast BOSS
I love me some sausage (redneck accent). I really do. There is something about the juicy, spicy, and fatty part of it all the just makes your mouth water. I always kick myself after indulging in something really fatty (bad fat) but…my friends….(drumroll)…..I found away around that guilt!!! I introduce you to homemade turkey sausage!
Prep/Cook time: 15 minutes
Turkey Sausage Ingredients
1 lb ground turkey
1 tbl honey
1/2 tsp sage
1 tsp black pepper
Other Breakfast ingredients
Sauteed veggies of your choosing- We used leftover avocado and broccoli that was sauteed the day before
Cheese of your choosing
2 whole grain English Muffins
Ketchup (Ben puts this on every egg dish he eats. This is most definitely optional and I do judge people who add ketchup to their eggs..j/k ) 😉
- Add two skillets to the stove with olive oil. One is for the turkey sausage and the other is for the veggies and eggs. Turn the stove top for the turkey sausage on medium to high heat(5 or 6) and turn the other one on medium heat(3-4).
- If you haven’t already sautéed your veggies, go ahead and cut them to size and toss them in the skillet for 5-7 minutes before adding the eggs.
- While your veggies are heating up or being cooked, combine the ground turkey, honey, sage, and black pepper in a bowl and start to make small patties. Once patties are made, start adding them to the pan to cook. I try to make the patties the size of the bread I’ll be using, don’t forget they’ll shrink so make them a little bigger than what you want on the sammich.
- Once veggies are cooked, add the 3 eggs to the pan with the vegetables and scramble away!
At this point you’ll have to do some juggling between flipping and switching out the turkey sausage patties and stirring the eggs. I feel like you’re a multitasker so you can totally handle it. I also believe there is an art to making scrambled eggs. I think it’s best to stir them frequently so they stay soft and fluffy. There is also a perfect time to add the cheese and I may have figured it out. The idea is to look at the eggs and find that there is still a little uncooked egg on the top layer. It will look like a thin layer of egg still needs cooked; it would approximately be 14.356% of the volume of the current egg ensemble (now I’m just being ridiculous), then sprinkle on the cheese of your choice! Don’t forget to keep stirring!!
Once the eggs and turkey sausage are done, I tend to put my english muffin in the microwave for about 15-20 seconds to warm it up so it splits evenly. Final step, compile your sammich!
This breakfast made me as happy as the plate below looks. Hope you enjoy and it puts a smile on your face!
