Spicy Sausage Juno

I’ve been trying to start this blog post for more than an hour and I cannot seem to get motivated to find the words. There is no reason why I should be without words, but for some reason I am speechless.

I decided I would just begin writing with the expectation of some divine intervention where the words would spill onto the page. That didn’t work. I started to write about things irrelevant to this portion of the website.

Then I took a break to yell at Sophie who keeps sucking and licking portions of the carpet; or more recently just tried to lick an active surge protector. Really?! I’ve given her rawhides, ice cubes, and various other toys to chew on and she wants to eat the carpet and lick on surge protectors? I hope she grows out of this.

Did I tell you guys I tried to cut her bangs? Rewind. I should probably tell you this little monster is afraid of almost everything: the peanut butter jar, the immobile vacuum cleaner, the tape gun, blow dryer, etc. She’s afraid of everything, but those things I think she should be afraid of like the oven or the dishwasher. She wants to jump into those things because curiosity takes hold and she cannot stay away. Well, she is officially afraid of scissors. I attempted to cut her bangs and now she looks like a hot mess. I feel horrible, yet it fits her personality. Well, that is what Nick says. That could have been his way of making me feel better.

Anyway, I haven’t been cooking that much lately. Well, I’ve been cooking easy things or recipes I’ve already prepared before. However, this week has been different. I have been cooking up a storm and one of the recipes I worked on is this Spicy Sausage Juno recipe.

Nick is the first person to have introduced me to Juno’s. If you don’t know what a Juno is it is simply a mixture of diced potatoes, cheese, breakfast meat, eggs and various spices {of your choice}. The best thing about making this recipe is it is super easy and super delicious. Check it out!

Ingredients:

  • 1 pound Spicy Italian Sausage, cooked and sliced into rounds
  • 3 to 4 white potatoes, diced
  • 8 eggs
  • ½ cup Parmesan cheese
  • 3 tablespoons milk
  • hot sauce
  • salt and pepper, to taste

Directions:

  • Fill a medium saucepan with water, add a dash of salt and bring to a boil over high heat
  • Add the potatoes and boil under the potatoes are fork tender, drain and set aside
  • Coat a large skillet with cooking spray
  • Over medium  - high heat add the sausage slices and diced potatoes to the skillet and allow to cook for about 3 minutes.
  • While the cooked sausage and potatoes are in the skillet, add the eggs, milk, hot sauce, salt and pepper to a bowl and whisk until the eggs are light and fluffy
  • Reduce the heat to medium
  • Add the eggs and the cheese to the skillet and allow the eggs to set for about a minute or two
  • Using a spatula begin to flip the ingredients around like you were making scrambled eggs {which is essentially what you’re trying to do… scramble the eggs while coating all of the sausage and potatoes with the cheese and eggs}
  • When the eggs are completely cooked remove and enjoy! 

I love Juno’s because I love potatoes, cheese, eggs and spicy sausage. I mean, who doesn’t love those ingredients? I have been thinking about making them again this week with bacon. I am salivating sitting here thinking about this meal!

I hope you give it a try!
