Ingredients & Cooking

Ingredients:

Basic Country Beef Breakfast Sausage
  • 1 recipe Basic Country Beef Breakfast Sausage
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 3 cups fat-free milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 4 eggs, beaten
  • 4 hot baked medium russet potatoes
  • 1/4 cup chopped green onions

Cooking:

  1. Prepare Basic Country Beef Breakfast Sausage.  Remove from skillet; keep warm.

    Basic Country Beef Breakfast Sausage:  Combine 1 pound Ground Beef (93% or leaner), 2 teaspoons chopped fresh sage or 1/2 teaspoon rubbed sage, 1 teaspoon garlic powder, 1 teaspoon onion powder, 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper in large bowl, mixing lightly but thoroughly.  Heat large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat until hot.  Add sausage mixture; cook 8 to 10 minutes, breaking into 1/2-inch crumbles and stirring occasionally.

    Cook's Tip: Cooking times are for fresh or thoroughly thawed ground beef. Ground beef should be cooked to an internal temperature of 160°F. Color is not a reliable indicator of ground beef doneness.
  2. Heat oil in same skillet over medium heat until hot.  Stir in flour; cook 4 minutes, stirring often.  Whisk in milk; bring to boil, whisking constantly.  Reduce heat; simmer 2 to 3 minutes until sauce thickens slightly, stirring occasionally.  Stir in sausage, salt and pepper; cook 1 to 2 minutes until beef is heated through, stirring occasionally.

  3. Meanwhile, heat small nonstick skillet over medium heat until hot.  Scramble eggs to desired doneness.

    Cook's Tip: You may substitute fried or poached eggs for scrambled eggs.
  4. Cut potatoes in half, lengthwise; open and fluff potatoes with fork.  Divide sausage mixture evenly among potatoes.  Top with eggs and green onions.

    Cook's Tip: You may substitute cooked hash browns, tater tots or another crispy potato product for baked potatoes.
