Change up this recipe as you see fit, using cooked vegetables, various sausage flavors and greens as you like and have on hand. Cooked, diced potato (or sweet potato) makes a great addition. Warm cornbread muffins are great accompaniments.

This recipe is by JeanMarie Brownson and was originally published in the Chicago Tribune.

Ingredients

  • 1/4 Cup olive oil
  • 1 Pound sliced mushrooms
  • 3 green onions, trimmed, thinly sliced
  • 4 links fully cooked spicy Italian chicken sausage
  • 1 Cup chopped raw asparagus (or chopped cooked broccoli)
  • 2 Cups (about 3 ounces) baby kale, spinach or arugula
  • 1/2 Teaspoon salt
  • 6 large eggs
  • Red pepper hot sauce

Directions

Step 1: Heat a 12-inch nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add 1/4 cup olive oil, 1 pound sliced mushrooms and 3 thinly sliced green onions. Cook and stir until mushrooms are tender and nicely golden on the edges, about 10 minutes.

Step 2: Push the mushrooms to one side of the pan and add 4 links fully cooked spicy Italian chicken sausage. Cook, turning, until the sausages are heated through and golden, about 5 minutes. Transfer sausages to a plate.

Step 3: Into the mushrooms, stir in 1 cup chopped raw asparagus, 2 cups (about 3 ounces) baby kale and 1/2 teaspoon salt. Cook and stir over medium heat to lightly wilt the kale.

Step 4: Use a spoon to make 6 indentations in the vegetable mixture. Crack 1 large egg into each indentation (6 eggs in total). Reduce heat to low, cover the pan and cook until egg whites turn opaque and yolks are barely set, about 5 minutes.

Step 5: Use a flexible spatula to transfer a nest of vegetables and egg to serving plates. Serve with the sausages and red pepper hot sauce.
