Scrambled eggs and breakfast sausage can get a little boring from time to time. But, we have a great way to spice up breakfast, literally. Chorizo is a spicy sausage used a lot in mexican dishes. Because of the spices, it has a red tint to it while cooking. Mixed with eggs and cheese, it makes a great breakfast dish that can be served any time of day and is even great wrapped in a flour tortilla! We like to brown the chorizo in an electric skillet for this Chorizo Breakfast Scramble recipe, but you can also use a frying pan or skillet.
Chorizo Breakfast Scramble
1/2 lb. chorizo sausage, casings removed
1 Tbsp. butter
6 eggs, beaten
1/4 c. scallions, chopped
1/4 c. pepper jack cheese
In a skillet, brown sausage over medium heat; set aside. In another nonstick skillet, melt butter over medium-low heat; add eggs, sausage and scallions—and scramble until done. Add cheese and stir until melted.
