Yield: 4
  • 2 medium red potatoes (approximately ¾ lb) washed and cut into thin wedges
  • 1 small white onion, sliced
  • 1-1/2 tsp rosemary, fresh (or ½ tsp dried)
  • 2 Tbl olive oil
  • ½ 12-oz pkg Johnsonville Original Recipe Breakfast Sausage
  • 1 cup grape tomatoes (approximately ½ pint)
  • ⅓ cup Gouda cheese, shredded
  • 2 to 4 large eggs (poached, fried or scrambled - your choice)
  • ¼ cup fresh basil leaves (slivered)
  1. In a large skillet, over medium heat, warm the olive oil. Add the onions and rosemary. Cook for 1-2 minutes and then add the potatoes.
  2. Cook for 5 minutes then add the sausages to the pan. Cook 10-12 minutes, turning occasionally to evenly brown all ingredients.
  3. While the potato/sausages are cooking, prepare your eggs - set aside.
  4. Add the tomatoes and stir carefully to combine and heat through. The tomatoes will brown slightly and burst open after about 3 minutes.
  5. Remove the pan from the heat and sprinkle with the Gouda cheese then add your cooked eggs of choice and top with the fresh basil.
