Cikancah-Cyber – Breakfast is easily made in just a short time. Prep Time: 30 Minutes Start to Finish: 30 Minutes Makes: 4 servings
4 frozen soy-protein breakfast sausage links (from 8-oz box), thawed
1 teaspoon olive oil
2 cups frozen country-style shredded hash brown potatoes (from 30-oz bag)
4 eggs or 8 egg whites
1⁄4 cup fat-free (skim) milk
1⁄4 teaspoon salt
1⁄8 teaspoon dried basil leaves
1⁄8 teaspoon dried oregano leaves
11⁄2 cups chopped plum (Roma) tomatoes
1⁄2 cup shredded mozzarella and Asiago cheese blend with garlic (2 oz) Freshly ground pepper, if desired Chopped green onion, if desired
- Cut each sausage link into 8 pieces. In 10-inch nonstick skillet, heat oil over medium heat. Add sausage and potatoes; cook 6 to 8 minutes, stirring occasionally, until potatoes are golden brown.
- In medium bowl, beat eggs and milk with fork or whisk until well blended. Pour over potato mixture. Cook uncovered over medium-low heat about 5 minutes; as mixture begins to set on bottom and side, gently lift cooked portions with spatula so that thin, uncooked portion can flow to bottom. Cook until eggs are thickened throughout but still moist; avoid constant stirring.
- Sprinkle salt, basil, oregano, tomatoes and cheese over eggs. Reduce heat to low. Cover; cook about 5 minutes or until center is set and cheese is melted. Sprinkle with pepper and green onion.
