Breakfast Scramble

I love breakfast! Sometimes I have time for it, and love to whip up this Easy Breakfast Skillet, and sometimes not, and opt for these awesome Breakfast Street Tacos. But I’ve got a confession to make. Lately I’ve gotten hooked on those sausage egg scrambles that you can buy in the refrigerated section of the grocery store. They’re so convenient and easy to make that I may never skip breakfast again! Plus they provide me with plenty of protein and good carbs perfect for my low carb diet.

OK, here comes the but … they’re expensive to grab and go every day. So, I decided that I had to try to make them at home. After all, they’re only eggs, sausage or bacon and some cheese. Plus, I could add onions and peppers, spinach or anything else I wanted.

Did it work out? Oh, yes it did! All I had to do was cook up some breakfast sausage, grate some cheese and scramble some eggs. Put it in a mug and cook it following the directions, with some adjustment on the time, of my favorite store-bought scramble. Out comes a cheesy, moist and flavorful meal in a matter of seconds. Can’t beat that for quick and easy!
