On occasion, I like to throw a little twist into a normally mundane meal. Last night, I came home from a Sunday family dinner with a bag full of leftovers which included a container of rosemary roasted potatoes. It turns out that these potatoes make really good home fries, so I decided to make breakfast for dinner tonight and include the potatoes.
I had plenty of eggs and picked up some turkey sausage at the store, along with our other staple items like milk. fruit, bread, soda, meats, and cereal. Late in the afternoon, I decided I didn’t just want basic scrambled eggs and sausage. Even with the breakfast for dinner idea, it seemed too boring. Instead, I looked up some egg recipes and decided on Scrambled Eggs with Sausage and Thyme, which I found on my Epicurious.com iPhone app, with a few minor adjustments.
The adjusted recipe is listed below. It was all really good, but you don’t need leftover potatoes to have this kind of meal. To make your own rosemary potatoes, chop up red potatoes into bite sized pieces and arrange them in a single layer on a cookie sheet glazed with olive oil. Sprinkle salt and dried rosemary over them, drizzle a little more olive oil, bake at 400F degrees for an hour. Your other option is a making your own home fries, whether from the frozen aisle or your own favorite recipe.
Scrambled Eggs with Sausage and Thyme – Adjusted from Bon Appetit’s post on Epicurious.com
- 8 Eggs
- 2 tsp Dijon mustard
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1/2 tsp pepper
- 2.5 tbsp butter
- 7 oz cooked smoked turkey sausage, cut in quarters lengthwise and sliced thinly crosswise
- 2 tsps dried thyme
- 4 ozs shredded Gouda (Smoked Gouda would have been awesome too, but I didn’t have any)
Whisk eggs, mustard, salt and pepper in large bowl and blend well. Melt 1 tablespoon butter in non-stick skillet over medium-high heat. Add sausage and stir until brown, about 3-4 minutes. Add thyme and stir 1 minute. Transfer mixture to plate covered in paper towels to collect grease.
Add 1.5 tablespoons butter to same skillet; melt over medium heat. Add eggs and cheese; stir until eggs are softly set and cheese begins to melt, about 3 minutes. Add sausage; stir until eggs are just set, about 2 minutes longer. Transfer to bowl and serve.
I made sure to serve the meal with some fruit and milk. If you wanted your vegetables, consider adding some chopped baby spinach in the egg mixture.
After such a filling and tasty breakfast, I think I’m ready to start my night!Keep an eye out for the next Valentine’s Day post, along with a coffee table tailgate spread to feed the Super Bowl Fans in your house!
