Cheesy Scrambled Eggs with Sausage and Caramelized Onions

P1040536Looking for something new to make for dinner? You must try these dressed-up scrambled eggs!

This was our dinner last Friday night along with yummy Blueberry Muffins. (I’ve mentioned before how much better I like breakfast for dinner rather than at breakfast!) These scrambled eggs were absolutely delicious…maybe my favorite way I’ve ever eaten scrambled eggs. Tim took a bite and said “Wow!”.  I took a bite and said “Mmmm!” He took another bite and said “Wow!” again! Oh-Yes! That’s what I like to hear.

The ingredients are very basic- added to the eggs are sausage, cheddar cheese, and caramelized onion, green pepper, and garlic.  But, all of these flavors compliment each other so well, they create an absolutely delicious meal.  I think the sweetness from the onions, though, might be the key ingredient that just makes these eggs so good!

Crustless Quiche

P1030248

I know I’ve been posting a lot of recipes lately that include pork. Recently I’ve shared Brown Sugar and Garlic Pork Chops, Easy Cheesy Baked Hash Browns and Sausage, and Sausage Rice and Bean Soup. But, as I mentioned before, we recently had a pig butchered and I am stocked up on pork now! So, there’s the reason, and please excuse the redundancy! (I hope you like pork!!)

This quiche was delicious! Yum Yum! I have found that I personally like quiche just as much, if not better, by omitting the traditional crust on the bottom. And that always makes preparation quicker and the whole dish a little healthier.

A very thick quiche that is stuffed full of sausage, zucchini, onions, garlic, mushrooms, peppers, and cheese is what this one is all about. The finished product is buttery, moist, and bursting with wonderful, savory flavors. It puffs up beautifully in the oven and boasts a great, golden brown top.

This was another of our “breakfast-for-dinner” meals. But, quiche hold heat in so well, it would also be perfect to take to a brunch or to a family as a gift.

Eggs over Fried Onions and Potatoes (sweet potato and white)

P1020901We love to have Breakfast for Dinner around here! We raise chickens, so we have the wonderful benefit of always having fresh eggs available. (so nice!) And so I like to make use of this great commodity by preparing Breakfast for Dinner on a regular basis.  It’s a great way to incorporate a meatless dish into your menu and it’s also budget-friendly.

This recipe includes three separate features, put together to create a pleasing blend of flavors and textures. On the bottom is sweet potatoes and russet potatoes, baked until tender and simply seasoned with olive oil, salt and pepper. Right there you already have some sweet and savory flavors going on.  The next layer is fried onions. I think these are what really make the dish, because they have such natural sweetness that really brings everything together and really compliments the eggs. And then, the top layer is a fried egg that breaks open to cover everything with it’s delicious yolk.
