Everything breakfast scramble

Hello there, long time no see.

I know it looked like I have abandoned this blog, but I haven't. The truth is, I was traveling for a while and became lazy when I got back. Ok... maybe I also messed up a few recipes and couldn't produce anything that looked remotely decent. But that's not the point. I'm back and am ready to share a new recipe with you :)

This breakfast dish is inspired by a restaurant called Eats in San Francisco, my best friend's favorite. She loved the caramelized garlic and fragrant sausage tossed with fresh eggs, and when she introduced me to it, I was hooked right away. So here's my version of it.

The beauty of this recipe is that you can use whatever you have on hand. I usually like to use some sort of meat + onion/ veggie + cheese with toast on the side. Everything is made in one pan and takes about 10-15 minutes  max.

Everything Breakfast Scramble

1-2 sausages, sliced or broken into small chunks
1/4 red onion, sliced
4 cloves of garlic
1/4 red bell pepper, finely chopped
2 eggs, beaten
1 green onion, finely chopped
Handful of grated cheese
Salt and pepper
Olive oil

1. Heat non-stick skillet to medium. Add sausages and fry until golden on both sides, about 5 minutes. This will allow the sausage to release some oil needed for caramelizing the onions. You only need about 1/2 teaspoon of oil for the onions, so discard any extra.
2. Add onions and garlic to the skillet. Season with a dash of salt. Stir frequently until golden brown, about 5 minutes.
3. Add red peppers and cook until soft, about 2 mins.
4. Add egg to the mixture. Toss to allow the egg to break apart and cook evenly. Add green onion and cheese, toss until egg is cooked through and cheese is melted, about 1 min.
5. Serve immediately.


  1. caramelized garlic sounds like a great add-on to scramble egg :)

    1. It almost tastes like roasted garlic... and we both know roasted garlic is good with everything! I can't get enough!

  2. It's a Southwestern Scramble! I'd recommend serving it over some tortillas or roasted potatoes, with a dollop of fresh salsa. :)

    1. Yeah I think that's the name of the original dish at Eats. I love the idea of serving with salsa and tortillas, maybe also guacamole. Great idea!
