Thanksgiving Holiday and Sausage Brunch Scramble using Piemonte Sausage Merguez

For a super healthy breakfast, packed with sweet, savory and spicy flavors.

Ingredients

  • 6 large eggs
  • 1 tablespoon whole milk
  • salt and  pepper to taste
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 6 oz pre-cooked Merquez sausage
  • 1 cup cherry tomatoes halved
  • 1 cup baby spinach leaves firmly packed
  • 6 basil fresh leaves, chopped
  • 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese grated, use to garnish
Instructions
  1. In a bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk, and salt and pepper. Whisk until the eggs are nice and frothy. Set aside.
  2. In a large non-stick skillet over medium heat, warm the olive oil. Add the sausages and brown, until there is no pink. Add the tomato and cook, stirring, about 1 minute. Reduce the heat to medium-low, add the egg mixture and cook, without stirring, until the eggs just begin to set, about 1 minute. Softly push the eggs around, letting any uncooked egg begin to cook.
  3. When the eggs are about half-cooked, after 1 to 2 minutes more, add the spinach, half of the chopped basil and cheese. Stir gently to combine and continue cooking until the eggs are completely set but are still moist, about 1 minute more. Serve the scramble in 4 portions, top with basil and more cheese if desired.

Black Dog Served Piemonte Sausage at Urbana First Fridays

Black Dog Smoke & Ale House Urbana‎ BDU Cornhole Tourney II on August 4th

Update! Tacos were off the menu for the tourney Friday, August 4th, mainly because Bazooka wanted something a little more special for Urbana First Fridays.
So Black Dog served Piemonte Sausage cooked in Triptych Brewing beer and served with Bavarian sauerkraut and they personally recommend Milo’s mustard BBQ sauce on there…
