This recipe is so simple, and chances are you’ve made this in your home plenty of times. I won’t go into too much detail, but I do have just a couple of tips for you with this sausage and egg sandwich recipe. I like to cook my sausage first, then drain, and then add the egg mixture to the skillet with the cooked sausage. I like the eggs to be fully combined with the sausage, it just makes for a more satisfying combination for me! You can certainly cook the eggs, and then add the cooked sausage if you would like them to be more separated!
I use my handheld blender to whisk my eggs. My husband and I have used a fork and used a whisk over the years, and I promise you the handheld blender produces the perfect, fluffy egg. Another tip is to take the skillet off the heat when the eggs are still just a little wet. They will continue cooking in the skillet as you get things ready to serve. I personally do not like over-cooked eggs, so if you take them off the heat just before they are fully set, they turn out perfect!
Let’s talk about adding milk when scrambling eggs. Should you or shouldn’t you? A lot of egg recipes call of 3/4 to a cup of milk. If you were to search google you’d see that most chefs recommend leaving out the milk for fluffier eggs. I’ve tried it both ways, and I personally like a bit of milk in my eggs. Maybe it’s that I was raised in the south and my mother always added milk. But I like it, so I’ll keep adding it!
You can add cheese to this recipe if you like. You can add it while the eggs and sausage are cooking, or sprinkle it on top. I serve it both ways equally, but the eggs and sausage are yummy enough without cheese! This recipe would also go with sauteed fresh vegetables like bell peppers if you are wanting to add a little color to it!
I like to serve this with a side of fresh fruit, typically whatever I have on hand. What type of fruit do you keep on hand? I like to stock blackberries, raspberries (although they never last very long), strawberries, and grapes. I also keep bananas, apples, and oranges, and I’ll buy a cantaloupe and pineapple every few weeks. I would love to know what you love to have on hand for sides and snack time.
Ok, let’s get to that recipe!
