  • 1 tbsp (15 mL) canola oil
  • 12 oz Kentucky Artisan Crafted Series Hickory Sausages, cut into chunks
  • 1/2 each red and green peppers, chopped
  • 1/2 small onion, chopped
  • 2 tsp (10 mL) dried Tex-Mex seasoning blend
  • 8 eggs, beaten
  • 1/2 cup (125 mL) milk
  • 1/4 cup (60 mL) finely chopped green onion
  • 1/2 tsp (2 mL) each salt and pepper
  • 1 cup (250 mL) shredded Cheddar cheese
  • 1/4 cup (60 mL) sour cream
  • 1 ripe avocado, sliced
  • 1/4 cup (60 mL) cilantro leaves


Preheat oven to 325ºF (160ºC). Heat oil in large, nonstick, ovenproof skillet set over medium heat; cook sausages for about 5 minutes or until lightly browned around edges. Add red and green peppers, onion and seasoning; cook for 5 to 8 minutes or until softened.

Whisk together eggs, milk, green onion, salt and pepper; pour into skillet, stirring to distribute vegetables and sausages evenly. Cook for about 5 minutes or until set on the bottom; sprinkle with cheese.

Bake for 20 to 25 minutes or until set in centre. Let cool for 5 minutes. Drizzle with sour cream. Garnish with avocado and cilantro. Serve warm or at room temperature.

Tip: Serve with tortilla chips, hot sauce and pico de gallo for a meal with all the Tex-Mex trimmings.
