Our go-to breakfast scramble

After Eric wrote about his famous Wild Winter Sausage a few weeks ago, I thought it would be nice to share a recipe using it as the star ingredient.


This breakfast scramble is fast, easy and healthy.  It’s also dairy and gluten-free, if you’re hip like that.  However, I must admit it would probably be fabulous with a big ‘ol pile of cheese melted on top.   Or stuffed in a tortilla.  If you’re feeling really frisky toss in about six eggs and scramble them up right along with it.

I like to eat it straight from a bowl with some fresh basil and avocado.

The sausage is flavorful enough that you don’t need much for spices, but if you need some kick I would suggest adding cumin, coriander or roasted red pepper flakes.

If you don’t have Eric’s Wild Winter Sausage, you could sub any ‘ol breakfast sausage just fine – go ahead and reduce (or omit) the oil though due the higher fat content of pork.

Wild Winter Sausage Scramble.


  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil (or your cooking oil of choice)
  • 1/2 yellow onion, diced
  • 1-2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 lb Wild Winter Sausage
  • 2 cups sweet peppers, chopped
  • 1 cup crimini mushrooms, sliced
  • 2 cups baby spinach
  • salt & pepper to taste


  1. Start by heating your oil in a large frying pan.
  2. Once the oil has melted, add your onions and garlic and saute until the onions are tender.
  3. Add your sausage and peppers.  Saute’ until almost cooked through, about 7-10 minutes.
  4. Season with salt and pepper to your liking.
  5. Add mushrooms.  Cook for 3-5 more minutes and then add spinach.
  6. Once spinach has wilted and all of the veggies are cooked through, remove from heat.
  7. Serve with sliced avocado and chopped basil

Optional:  top with shredded cheese or put in a tortilla for breakfast on-the-go.

This is the perfect breakfast to whip up before a trail run, a day out in the backcountry, or would be awesome on the river in the dutch oven.

Wherever you choose to cook it – enjoy!
