Works for Me Wednesday: Breakfast for Dinner
This is my first time making it in time for a Works for Me Wednesday!
Tuesday and Sunday nights are always quick dinner nights at our house. It is often a challenge to find something to eat that can be prepared quickly, taste good, fill us and actually provide some nutrition. Breakfast for dinner is how I sometimes handle nights like that, since it requires almost no thought or preparation. We had it for dinner last night, in fact. Scrambled eggs and toast, breakfast burritos, fried eggs and bacon, or, like last night, Nacho Breakfast.
Nacho Breakfast - Or How to Eat a Bag of Chips for Dinner
Take a pound of sausage, any kind of sausage you like. Brown it and render the fat over medium low heat. Whip up 15 eggs with some black pepper. Add a cup or more of salsa to the sausage once it is browned, stir it to heat and evaporate some of the liquid, pour the eggs over and cook as for scrambled eggs, sprinkle with grated cheddar cheese, about a cup or two and cook until the egg is cooked to your liking.
Serve each person a plate of the eggs over a bed of corn chips, top with some more salsa and sour cream. Sprinkle with chopped scallions and olives, if you like and have hot sauce available for those who want it. This serves six very hungry people or eight normal people.
It works for me!
