We have now had our chickens for about a month and we are starting to get a surplus of eggs. For the first few weeks Ross was getting up early every morning to make himself eggs for breakfast, but the novelty of it all is starting to fade and so his egg consumption is starting to dwindle. I sold my first dozen eggs about a week ago to a coworker for $3, but I still had about three dozen extra so I decided it was the prefect time to try making breakfast for dinner (which I guess is a somewhat common thing among breakfast lovers).
As a general rule of thumb I usually skip the most important meal of the day, much to the dismay of my mother. I don’t usually eat breakfast because I really don’t like many breakfast foods including eggs. When I do eat eggs they are always scrambled. Because I don’t love the taste of eggs by themselves I decided to make a scramble that included a few of my favorite things to tempt my taste buds. We had some extra goat milk since we are having to milk our goat, EB, on one side every few days when her kids decide to favor a side so I decided to add some goat milk to the recipe. The result was a goat milk and sausage scramble that Ross gave rave reviews and I actually enjoyed! The goat milk definitely enhanced the creaminess of the fresh eggs which made them taste so much more flavorful. The best part was knowing our animals helped put food on our dinner table for the very first time!
Goat Milk and Sausage Scramble
1 lbs of sausage
1 cup chopped bell peppers
10 farm fresh eggs
8 teaspoons goat milk
1 cup of Garlic Monterrey Jack shredded cheese
7 large basil leaves chopped
1. Brown sausage in large fry pan over medium heat and drain excess fat.
2. Add peppers to the sausage and cook until tender.
2. In a bowl whisk eggs and goat milk (for mixing tips visit The Perfect Scrambled Egg Page)
3. Add the eggs and milk mixture to the fry pan and scramble over medium heat.
4. Sprinkle the shredded cheese and chopped basil to the scrambled eggs just before the eggs are done cooking so the cheese has a chance to melt over the top.
