Feel free to use bacon instead of sausage. If you use bacon, I would recommend crushing the bacon into bits after it cooks and setting it aside. Cook the veggies in a little bit of the bacon oil and then throw the bacon bits in the pan right before turning the heat off. You can also use or add garlic and onions here, some carrots, zucchini, mushrooms, and extra greens (spinach, kale, collard greens, Swiss chard, what have you).
If you have a cast iron skillet, this is something that would totally cook great in it. I would have used mine, but I only have one and I want to keep it vegetarian for now.
olive oil1 breakfast sausage patty
3 mini bell peppers, chopped
1 head of broccoli, chopped
small handful of cherry tomatoes, cut in half
green onions, minced
Heat some olive oil in a large, nonstick skillet. Don't use too much because the sausage is already full of fat! Place the sausage patty in the pan and break it into little pieces with your spatula. Once it starts turning brown, add the bell peppers and cook for about a minute. Toss the broccoli in and cook until it turns an even darker shade of green and is slightly soft. Generously season with salt, pepper, and some paprika. Throw in the cherry tomatoes and half of the green onions. Stir for about a minute. Add the rest of the green onions and stir.
Crack eggs over the vegetables. Sprinkle salt and pepper over the eggs then cover the skillet. Let the eggs cook to the consistency of your liking. Turn the heat off and serve right away.
Start your day right by filling your belly with healthy veggies!
