Dangerously Daydreaming

"All men dream, but not equally. Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their minds, wake in the day to find that it was vanity: but the dreamers of the day are dangerous men, for they may act on their dreams with open eyes, to make them possible." ~ T. E. Lawrence

Tasty Tuesdays: Italian Scramble

Happy Tuesday!  This whole Labor Day thing has really thrown me off, I was all prepared to regale you darling readers with tales of weekend adventure, precarious excursions, and memory-making at it’s best.  So I’ll save that post for tomorrow.  Does this feel like an exciting “To be continued…” moment to anyone else?  No?  Ok, back to the business at hand.

Here’s our weekly episode of Tasty Tuesdays, featuring the breakfast of champions!  First, french press a little locally roasted coffee so you’re in the mood to relax and cook.  I love my eggs over easy but I have the darndest time not breaking the yolk.  My solution?  Scrambles!  Plus, there’s are all the other delicious goodies that you can add to a scramble.  And it’s so easy, which is great if you’re like me and are about as functional as Boris Karloff’s version of the Frankenstein monster during the wee morning hours.  Much groaning, simple words, and very slow movements…  You see how this breakfast is taking us on a mini-tour of Europe? French pressed coffee, Italian scrambles, and now German monsters.  I digress.  Onward!

What you need:

  • 1/4 lbs sweet Italian sausage – ground
  • 1/2 sweet yellow onion – chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic – pressed
  • 1 tsp Italian Seasoning
  • 1 roma tomato – chopped
  • 1 green onion – chopped
  • 1 c. fresh spinach
  • 6 eggs
  • 1/4 c. parmesan cheese – shredded

What you do:

Combine sausage, onions, garlic, and seasoning to a skillet over medium heat and cook until onions are translucent and sausage has browned.  Add tomato and spinach.  Cook until spinach wilts, about 2-3 minutes.

In a medium-sized bowl whisk eggs together.  Pour eggs evenly into skillet and reduce burner to medium-low heat.  Stir occasionally to prevent eggs from burning.  When eggs are cooked, turn burner off.  Sprinkle cheese over top of the scramble and mix in.

Serve and enjoy!  Feeds 4 regular villagers or 2 hungry monsters.

    I wish I would think to stop by here BEFORE I ate dinner instead of after. My dinners would be much more exciting.

      Haha, you can always try a recipe later in the week! At least you aren’t hopping online when you’re hungry – I had several complaints about making poor readers feel famished…
