Hearty Sausage and Egg Skillet Breakfast

Hearty Sausage and Egg Skillet Breakfast

A few weeks ago I was trying to come up with a hearty, tasty breakfast idea that would make a large amount and keep well in the refrigerator so we could just scoop out a bowlful and heat it up for a quick, nutritious, substantial meal to start our day.  I had made breakfast burritos for our San Juan Sailing trip in September so I just made a variation of that filling.  It turned out really well and we loved it ~ and it’s creamy cheesiness is delicious.  There are so many possibilities to customize this dish to suit your tastes ~ add any veggies you like, any cheese you like {next time I’ll use pepper-jack}, and any seasonings you like.  I think it would be really good with chunked up ham, too.

These pictures don’t do it justice so you’ll have to believe me when I say if you like sausage, egg, and cheese you’ll love this.  If you love breakfast burritos you’ll love this.  If you like all of the previously mentioned items with veggies you’ll love this.  And you can make as much as you want ~ just alter the ingredient amounts.
