I used to get something similar to this for breakfast every day from a local co-op. After moving, I realized how easy it was to make, and replicated it. Serve immediately, or refrigerate and reheat throughout the week.

Instructions Checklist
  • Beat eggs, Cheddar cheese, and milk together with a fork in a large bowl.

  • Place sausages in a large skillet and cook over medium-high heat, turning occasionally, until evenly browned, 7 to 10 minutes. Transfer sausage to a work surface and cut into 1/2-inch pieces.

  • Heat olive oil in a large, deep skillet over medium heat. Cook and stir onion and garlic in hot oil until onion is slightly translucent, 3 to 4 minutes. Gradually add spinach to onion mixture; cook and stir until wilted, 1 to 2 minutes. Add sausage pieces and cook until heated through, about 1 minute more.

  • Slowly pour egg mixture into sausage mixture; cook and stir until eggs are set, 2 to 5 minutes. Stir rice, cayenne pepper, salt, and black pepper into eggs.

Cook's Notes:

I use Minute Rice(R) cooked in chicken broth for the cooked brown rice. You can substitute any cheese for the Cheddar cheese, if desired.

The base for this meal is really the rice, egg, onion, and spinach. Feel free to add and subtract as you please.

This is quite an interesting dish. I had to omit the garlic because I live with a vampire and I had to substitute kale for spinach because that vampire doesn't care for spinach. I think this needs something more though I'm not sure what. It's just not colorful enough. Diced tomatoes on top? Red rice instead of brown? Husband suggests beans and/or corn. I can't wait to play with it because it really is very good. Read More
