    1

    Prepare the Ingredients

    Stem, seed, and cut green bell pepper into ¼" dice. Trim and thinly slice green onions on an angle, keeping white and green portions separate. On a separate cutting board, make a cut down the side of each sausage link and remove ground sausage from casings.

  • Step 2 - Cook the Sausage Mixture

    Cook the Sausage Mixture

    Line a plate with a paper towel. Place sausage in a medium non-stick pan over medium-high heat (no need to oil or preheat) and cook until browned, breaking up into crumbles, 4-6 minutes. Add green bell pepper, white portions of green onions, and ¼ tsp. salt. Cook until vegetables are softened, 4-6 minutes. Transfer sausage mixture to towel-lined plate to absorb fat. While sausage mixture cooks, prepare egg mixture.

  • Step 3 - Make the Egg Mixture
