I am a bit of a breakfast snob. I never have time for it (bad me I know) but when I do I want to eat something good. The other morning I was tempted by laziness to just throw toast in the toaster and be done with it. But know I am limiting my carbs I decided to go for the eggs. Well once I had decided that I knew I just couldn’t have eggs. My sausage, parmesan and spinach eggs turned out great! I have a feeling I will make these again! If you would like to make sausage, parmesan and spinach eggs…
Here’s what you need…
a handful of fresh spinach (roughly 1/2 cup)
2 turkey sausage patties or link, fully cooked
1 garlic clove, minced
a couple of tablespoons of grated parmesan cheese (I just added till I was happy)
salt and pepper
extra virgin olive oil
Here’s what you do…
Heat a pan over medium heat. Add in the olive oil, allow to heat through. Add in the onion and allow to soften, about 3-4 minutes. Add in sausage to the pan to heat through and brown. Add in the garlic, cook for 1 minutes. Toss in the spinach leaves. Stir and allow to wilt. Season with a little salt and pepper. In a separate bowl crack the eggs one at a time. Whisk to combine, add just a splash of water for fluffy-ness. Add the eggs to the wilted spinach mixture. Stir to combine. Cook for 3 minutes or until your eggs are cooked mostly through, add in the cheese to melt and finish cooking the eggs. I don’t like wet scrambled eggs but you can cook yours to your preference.
I felt a little like Popeye! Strong and ready for the day. It kept me full well past my normal lunch time. I hope you enjoy!
