EGG SCRAMBLE WITH VEGGIES, SAUSAGE & CHEESE (easy)

Chicken with Tomatoes & Olives (Easy)

INGREDIENTS:
(Serves 3)
EGG SCRAMBLE WITH VEGGIES, SAUSAGE & CHEESE

This is a pretty typical meal for a lazy Saturday morning and very easy to fix. I have also added mushrooms, substituted bacon or ground sausage for the rope sausage, or added fresh basil. Salt & pepper to taste, as always, and sometimes thyme. For a little more savory scramble add salsa & fiesta chili powder. I am not a fan of peppers, but if you like them, you can add red and green for some additional color. For a lighter dish, substitute heavy cream with 1% milk and cheddar cheese with low fat cheese.

INGREDIENTS:
 (Serves 2)
•    2 tbsp. butter
•    6 large eggs
•    1/3 cup heavy cream
•    2 oz. (about 2") of rope sausage, coarsely chopped
•    1 green onion, coarsely chopped
•    1 cup Italian (flat) parsley, coarsely chopped
•    1/2 cup diced raw tomato
•    2 cups grated cheddar cheese
•    Salt & pepper to taste
DIRECTIONS:
•    Beat eggs and cream together until foamy
•    Melt butter in medium frying pan over medium high heat
•    Add sausage and cook until brown
•    Add egg mixture - stir and cook until almost done
•    Add parsley and onions and mix well
•    Add tomatoes and cook for another minute - remove from heat
•    Sprinkle cheese on top and let sit until cheese is melted (1-2 minutes)
•    Serve with a sprig of parsley for garnish
