Breakfast Recipe: Sausage and Eggs

When you make the switch to Paleo, there are many favorite foods you have to write off. Sure, breads and sugars are a big deal, but it is the CHEESE that is devastating. I put cheese on everything and now I had to find something different.

Enter the sausage.

A few weeks after going Paleo my husband decided to join me. I was thrilled! Specific diets like this are much easier when you have a partner in crime to keep you accountable. It also forces me to eat breakfast every day which I tend to skip and not realize I’m hungry until 11:30 when I eat too much for lunch. By getting in those healthy fats first thing in the morning, I stay full which equals less bingeing which equals weight loss!

So when I hit up the grocery store for my after work shopping bonanza I was rushed and a little stressed out. Somehow through the haze of “put all of the things in the cart” I was still able to grab some new meats for us to try including these awesome, fat sausage links!

Sausage - the perfect substitute for cheese.

My breakfasts are usually pretty “What do we have? Throw it in a pan.” and this was no exception

Who doesn't love the smell of sausages in the morning?

I threw them in a pan with a little water and covered with a lid. At one point I cut them in half to finish cooking because my husband has been known to have to throw them back into the pan for an extra minute…whoops!

While those were cooking I dug around to see what else I could find. I ended up with an orange pepper and a bag of sun-dried tomatoes.

Yum!

 

More yum!

So when my sausages were done I threw these in with a little water to start cooking them before adding the eggs. Only use a small amount of water and cook it off before adding your eggs, otherwise you have runny eggs. No one likes runny eggs. If someone says they like runny eggs they are lying to you.

Cook 'em up real good

Finally add your whipped up eggs to the mix (sorry no picture of this step, but c’mon you all know how to make scrambled eggs!). This is always a pretty quick step so keep those eggs moving! Burnt eggs might be worse than runny eggs IMHO.  When everything is done plate it pretty.

A little egg, a little sausage, a little delicious!

 

Don't forget the coffee...or the rooster!

Make sure you have enough coffee to get through this entire 15 minute process…I drank one cup and brewed another during the process! Cheers! (We can cheers with coffee this early on a Sunday morning…any later and it would be Mimosas!)
