If you like a little spice in your breakfast food, introducing Andouille sausage is a great way to add a bit of a kick to your morning routine. This is a super easy breakfast and yet it’s something you can feed family or guests and make a pretty and impressive plate.
1 Andouille sausage, quartered length way and diced
1/2 medium green pepper, diced
1/2 medium red pepper, diced
1 small yellow onion, diced
2 tablespoons butter
1/3 cup half and half
1 to 1 1/2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
Cajun seasoning (optional)
Melt butter in a large non-stick skillet over medium heat. Add the diced onion, peppers and Andouille sausage. Cook until veggies are just tender and sausage has browned slightly. Break the 6 eggs into a mixing bowl and whisk with the half and half and about a teaspoon of salt. Be careful how much salt you add as the sausage is heavily seasoned. It’s always easy to add more later, but hard to fix if you over season now. If you like a little added kick, add a few dashes of Tabasco sauce or a teaspoon of Cajun seasoning to the egg mixture.
Add the egg mixture to the skillet with the sausage and veggies. Move the eggs about the pan as the eggs set, making sure the bottom doesn’t get brown. After the eggs have begun to set, but not quite done, add the cheese. Continue moving the mixture in the pan until the cheese melts. Remove pan from heat.
Serve immediately garnished with a bit of shredded cheese and sliced green onion.
