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.

A white plate with a serving of Chorizo Scrambled egg casserole, topped with cheese and chopped green onions.

 ½ lb chorizo sausage (casings removed)
 1 tbsp butter
 6 eggs (beaten)
 ¼ cup scallions (chopped)
 ¼ cup 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. Enjoy!
