Sausage & Thyme  Scrambled Eggs

Sausage & Thyme Scrambled Eggs

(4 servings)    Printable Version
  • 8 large eggs
  • 1 tablespoon coarse-grained mustard
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 4 ounces fully cooked sausage (suggestions: smoked turkey sausage- kielbasa- or chicken apple sausage) thinly sliced crosswise
  • 3/4 cup chopped green onions
  • 4 ounces Neufchâtel cheese (reduced-fat cream cheese) cut into small pieces
  • 1 teaspoon fresh thyme leaves (about 3 stems)
  • Fresh thyme sprigs (optional)
Whisk eggs, mustard, salt and pepper in large bowl to blend well.

Melt 1 tablespoon butter in 12-inch-diameter non-stick skillet over medium heat. Add sausage and stir until brown, about 3 minutes. Add green onions and thyme and stir 1 minute. Transfer mixture to bowl.

Add 2 tablespoons butter to same skillet; melt over medium heat. Add eggs and cheese; stir until eggs are softly set and cheese begins to melt, about 3 minutes. (See Mr Breakfast's article about making the perfect scrambled eggs!)

Add sausage mixture; stir until eggs are just set, about 2 minutes longer. Transfer to platter.

Garnish with thyme sprigs, if desired.

I know some people who don't like cream cheese with their eggs. I recommend trying coarsly chopped smoked mozzarella- the texture is perfect and it adds an amazing smokey taste!
