Loaded Scrambled Eggs Recipe
These Loaded Scrambled Eggs, made with sausage, onion, peppers, mushrooms, spinach, eggs and herbs, make a colorful and pleasing plate for breakfast, brunch or brinner.
Armed with a skillet and an assortment of simple ingredients these hearty Loaded Scrambled Eggs can be ready in no time. They are just perfect for a satisfying breakfast, brunch, or our favorite, breakfast for dinner, aka brinner. We do enjoy a good brinner once in a while. Do you?
These Loaded Scrambled Eggs are easy and relatively quick to make. From start to finish the total cook time is about 15-20 minutes tops. The ingredients can be prepped ahead of time, with most of the ingredients ready and kept waiting in the refrigerator for go time. In addition to the eggs, ground sausage, diced onion, diced bell peppers, sliced mushrooms, baby spinach leaves, and a few basic herbs are called for in the recipe. Easily substitute different types of sausage, peppers, or other leafy greens. Chicken sausage would be nice, and perhaps poblano peppers, and kale instead of baby spinach. The combinations are endless. The versatility is one of the things I like about making loaded scrambled eggs. We use whatever we have on hand. It’s always a great go-to breakfast. And if you’re eating carb free, this loaded scramble is a great way to start the day with a hearty carb free meal.
Serve this loaded scramble warm topped with fresh parsley or cilantro, and if you’d like, a sprinkling of your favorite shredded cheese. And if you are a fan of hot sauce like I am, try a drizzling atop this dish. I really think hot sauce is the perfect condiment for eggs. Round out this meal with some crusty toast and fruit for an excellent and oh so easy meal. Brinner has never looked better!
