One of Tyson's all-time favorite things about the holiday season is Hickory Farms....also eggnog. I'm just really not an eggnog person. Our first Christmas together he FORCED me to try it. Still not converted. But I do love Hickory Farms Summer Sausage. Also those little mints. Who doesn't love those??
My favorite thing to do with the summer sausage is cook it up in a frying pan and put it in an omelette. Throw in a little onion, cilantro, cheese, and broccoli [YES broccoli] and prepare yourself for a deliciously satisfying breakfast.
Recipe from: Shannon, ikneadtobake
1/4 c. summer sausage salami, diced
1/3 c. onion, diced
1/4 c. broccoli
2 Tbsp green onion
2 Tbsp cilantro
1/4 c. cheddar cheese
1 egg white
salt and pepper, to taste
Directions: In a small bowl combine 1 egg and 1 egg white. Whisk together. Set aside.
Heat a frying pan over medium heat. Add sausage, onion, and broccoli. Cover and allow to cook for 2-3 minutes. Add cilantro and green onion to the pan. Cook, for about 15 seconds then remove from heat and set aside. Heat another pan over medium heat and add the eggs. Allow them to cook for about 15-20 seconds, the eggs should still be a little runny on the top.
Add cheddar cheese and fold the omelette in half. Top with cheese and cover. Cook for an additional 30 seconds - 1 minute. Top with fresh cilantro and enjoy!
