Welcome to my little corner of the world. Welcome if you are a first timer and welcome back if you are an old friend. Regardless? WELCOME! Thank you so very much for stopping by and spending some moments with me.
In this busy and sometimes hectic life we lead, having a nutritious breakfast is simply a great way to start your day. I have a couple of issues with this:
First, I’m no Martha Stewart and I have minimal cooking skills. I live for quick and easy.
Two, Im a cheapskate and like to keep my grocery budget pretty strict so I don’t like needing weird ingredients you only use once.
Three, I rarely feel like getting up in the morning, especially on a work day, and actually cook something on a stove. Anyone with me?
I have made a habit of meal prepping as much as possible and found this “go to” for breakfast that is a sure winner. It is easy to make, and it saves well. I usually make 4-6 servings and it gets me through the week. It can either be a quick warm up before work, or easy to pack and bring with. This also works very well for a big ole family breakfast main dish. I encourage you to try it out.
Here’s what you’ll need:
1/2 cup peppers of your choice
1 cup mushrooms
6oz sausage of your choice (I have used different kinds as I buy what’s on sale)
I cup shredded cheese
1/4C of 1/2 and 1/2
Seasoning of your choice. I use Weber N’orleans Cajun mix. It’s my go to and use it on just about everything.
1. Warm butter in a sizable skillet. Add chopped peppers and sauté until tender.
2. Add mushrooms and repeat.
3. Remove all of above (slotted spoon works well) and set aside. Add the cut up sausage to the pan and sauté until either warmed (if pre-cooked) or cooked through.
4. While sausage is doing its thing, crack the eggs. Add the seasoning and 1/2 and 1/2
5. Whip it up good.
6. Add egg mixture to sausage cooking in pan and add vegetables that were sautéed earlier. Cook until eggs start to cook through but not completely.
7. Add the cheese. Mix thoroughly until cheese starts to get gooey and sticks everything together.
8. Remove from heat. Allow to cool a bit and divide into containers of your choice.

This is definitely a “win”. This is quick, easy, uses normal ingredients, and have never had a complaint. Give it a try and leave me a comment on how it turned out or if you altered it in any way!
