Why we love it
Sausage and egg scramble is a simple breakfast dish that’s perfect for weekend brunch or just a quick lunch. It’s the go-to meal in our house when I’m just in a hurry and not sure what to make. It is also a great way to use up leftover sausages and eggs.
Just add in some spinach for protein, along with spices and onion for flavor. You can also get creative with the vegetables, substituting in peas, broccoli or even brussels sprouts. Or simply enjoy it as is.
The key is to get the juices of the sausages and spices to flow into the spinach and egg, adding a ton of flavor. I like to serve it on toast or a baguette, but you can also choose to eat it as is.
And the best part is you can make this the night before and just heat it up in the morning!
