Breakfast Joes

It’s no secret that we’re Sloppy Joe people.  We love us a Joe for supper so much that the other day I thought, why not make a Breakfast Joe?  It’s the perfect breakfast, brunch or dinner!  Simple and quick…and really yummy too.

This method makes enough for 4 adults.

Shopping List
1/2 a pound of breakfast sausage, I used 8 oz of Owen’s
12 eggs or egg whites (or a combination of both)
a splash of milk, half and half or cream
1 cup Monterey Jack cheese, shredded
3 or 4 tablespoons chives, snipped into pieces (plus more for garnish)
4 English Muffins, toasted and split in half
Salt and Pepper
 Salsa for drizzling

Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat and brown your sausage until crumbly and brown.

While your sausage is browning, beat your eggs and milk in a bowl with a wire whisk.  Add in a nice pinch of salt and pepper.

Once the sausage is browned and crumbly, lower the heat just a little under your skillet and pour your beaten eggs in the skillet on top of the sausage.  Scramble your eggs and sausage together (it takes about 4 minutes or so).  Once your eggs are scrambled, stir in your cheese and snipped chives.

To serve, lay out both halves on your English muffin on each plate and scoop the sausage and egg mixture down over the top.  Drizzle salsa down and a few more snipped pieces of chives.

And that’s it! It’s open face like one of my Sloppy Joes but in breakfast form…and I don’t know about you, but we love eating breakfast for dinner.

    I have noticed that you use a lot of sausage instead of bacon in your breakfast recipes. I was wondering if bacon would work instead (my husband is a die hard eggs and bacon kind of guy). Such as in this recipe and in your sausage crescent casserole. Thank you so much and please keep recipes coming! We love them!

    You could totally substitute some crumbled bacon! Yummy!
