Dana and I went to Hash House A Go Go a last year when we went to Mohegan Sun Casino.  It was an amazing breakfast.  We both had a farm house scramble.  Basically it is a biscuit topped with griddled potatoes, veggies, meat, eggs and cheese.  Basically the best combination possible.  We have been talking about it for a while now.  After making homemade biscuits the other day, we thought it would be a great idea to make our own farmhouse scrambles at home.  My take uses sausage and a pepper medley.  Totally Awesome!

Sausage Farmhouse Scramble

Sausage Farmhouse Scramble

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.

Peppers and onions

Dice up 3 peppers and an onion.

Saute

In a large pan add 2 tbs of oil and saute the peppers and onions.  Season with salt and pepper to taste.

Sausage

In a separate medium frying pan over medium/high heat, cook 1 pound of your favorite breakfast sausage according to the package instructions.  Once cooked remove the sausage and reserve the grease.

Scrambled Eggs

You can make the eggs any way that you want, scrambled, over easy, over hard, soft boiled etc.   I made them scrambled. Mix the eggs with 2 tbs of milk.  Whip up the eggs till light yellow in color.  Turn the heat on the medium frying pan to medium heat.  Then pour into the medium frying pan with the sausage grease.  Cook for 2-3 minutes or until the eggs are fully cooked.  Set aside.

potatoes

Once the peppers and onions soften, 4-5 minutes add the potatoes.  You can use fresh, frozen or canned diced potatoes.  The frozen potatoes will take an extra 5-8 minutes.

Brown and add the sausage

Cook until the potatoes start to brown.  10-20 minutes depending on the type of potato that you use. Once the potatoes are cooked, add the sausage to the potato mixture.  Stir.

Start the scramble

In separate oven safe serving plates add 1/4 cup of the sausage potato mixture and top with a biscuit.  You can use small baking dishes, skillets, pyrex dishes or pretty much any oven safe dish you have around.  If you only have a large 9×13 pyrex, make a single dish and take it to the table.

Top with more potatoes and the eggs

Then top the biscuit with another 1/2 to 1 cup of the sausage potato mixture and some scrambled eggs.

Top with cheese and bake

Place the serving plates in the oven and cook for 5-8 minutes or until the cheese is melted.

Perfectly melted

Serve immediately.
