Brown Rice Skillet Breakfast

"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."

  1. Beat eggs, Cheddar cheese, and milk together with a fork in a large bowl.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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® 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.
