The Perfect Morning Pick Me Up
Italian Sausage cut into small pieces
1/3 cup of Tuscan mix frozen veggies
teaspoon of olive oil
Drizzle olive oil in small frying pan on medium high heat (depending on how fatty your sausage is you might not need the oil)
Throw in the sausage. While thats starting to brown grab out a small bowl, a plate, a fork and a spatula.
Crack eggs into bowl and using fork give em’ a whip.
Flip the sausage bits around to cook them nice and even (I like mine nice and browned on all sides the high heat will melt a lot of the fat out of them and coat the pan…all the better to keep your eggs from sticking!)
Once the sausage is just about done throw in your frozen veggies no need to thaw. When they loose their “frosty the snowman” edge (this takes one to two min) pour in the whipped eggs turn the heat down and make yourself a cup of joe or in my case black tea, 1/2 teaspoon of sugar and some milk.
When the eggs are just about set fold it over to you know…make it an omelet.
For even faster cooking just make an egg scramble and leave the heat a little higher.
If you have some in-laws to impress (or if you are your own tough customer as in my case) garnish with a dash of chili powder and a slice of avocado or fresh tomato.
And Bam! Breakfast restaurant style in ten min, at home, for like a buck…its hard to beat.
Since this recipe does not require your full attention, much preparation, maintenance, or deluxe cooking skills its a great way to eat well fast and cheap.
I usually make tea organize my backpack and do my make up while this is cooking —- there is a mirrored medicine cabinet in my kitchen. Weird? Yes. Handy?…You have no idea.
For me the Italian sausage gives it enough flavor and fat to eliminate my need for cheese.
For an even healthier option go with a leaner turkey sausage or tofu(depending on how you feel about soy and its effects on estrogen levels) Sweet potato is another great meat free option. Also you could do two egg whites one yolk if that’s the kind of thing your into.
All the necessary nutrients for a well rounded meal…check.
Plenty of protien…Check
Enough fat to make you feel like your getting a treat without ordering a double mc- bacon wrapped bacon with a side of bacon …ya.
For all of you four hour body folks this is a seriously yummy option that is also really easy. I never feel like I’m on a diet when I have this for breakfast…so try it!
