Sunny Farm Delight Breakfast Sandwich
Serves 2


  • 1 breakfast sausage link
  • 1 slice of bacon
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 cup frozen shredded hash brown potatoes, thawed
  • ¼ cup chopped onions
  • ¼ cup chopped green bell peppers
  • ½ tsp chopped cilantro
  • ½ tsp chopped basil
  • ½ tsp black pepper
  • ½ tsp seasoning salt
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 tbsp half and half
  • 2 slices American cheese
  • 1 tbsp shredded American cheese

  • Instructions

    Fully cook the sausage and bacon and chop to desired size. Sauté the potatoes in the olive oil until golden brown. Add the sausage, bacon, onions and peppers. Sauté until vegetables are tender. Remove the vegetables from the heat and place in a bowl, stirring in the herbs and spices. Whisk together the eggs and half and half, and then pour into a hot skillet. As the eggs set, lift the edges, letting the uncooked portions flow underneath. Add the sliced cheese halfway through cooking. When eggs are totally set, spoon half of the vegetable mixture down the middle of the omelet. Fold the omelet edges in and flip over. Spoon remaining vegetable mixture over the top. Sprinkle with shredded cheese to garnish and serve immediately.
