From Dom DeLuise. Be sure not to overcook the eggs. The original does not say what kind of grated cheese to use on top. I chose Parmesan, but you can use whatever you want. Serve with hot Italian bread.
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 1 medium potato, cubed
- 1⁄2 lb sweet Italian sausage
- 1 small onion, chopped
- 1 small green pepper, seeded and chopped
- 1 small sweet red pepper, seeded and chopped
- 8 eggs
- 2 tablespoons milk
- 1⁄8 teaspoon oregano
- 1 tomato, seeded and chopped
- 1⁄4 cup mozzarella cheese, shredded
- 1⁄4 cup parmesan cheese, grated
- fresh parsley, chopped, for garnish
- Heat olive oil in a large frying pan and add the potato. Cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally.
- Remove sausage casings and crumble meat into the pan. Cook, stirring, until lightly browned.
- Add onion and peppers. Cook until onion is softened and potatoes are done.
- Beat eggs, milk and oregano together.
- Add egg mixture, tomato and mozzarella all at once.
- Reduce heat and cook, stirring lightly, until eggs are soft and fluffy.
- Top with grated cheese and parsley.
A very good breakfast scramble that we enjoyed this morning. For the two of us I did halve the recipe and there was more then enough for two good size servings. Since peppers are not DH's favorites I used a larger red pepper, cooked the potato in the microwave, used a red onion and cherry tomatoes instead of a whole tomato. Great flavors, cheesey goodness, and everything you would want in one dish. Chocolatl thank you for sharing this recipe with us!

Mmm...this is my kind of scramble! I loved everything that is in this delicious scramble. I used red potato, red onion and a mixture of hot and mild Italian sausage. Also, I added 1/8 tsp. dried basil along with the oregano. I had two, yes I said two, large servings and wolfed both of them down. I added some warm pizza sauce on my second helping and it made a perfect scramble even better. Thank you for sharing this wonderful recipe...it is definitely a keeper! **Made for Culinary Quest - Suitcase Gourmets**
Yummers! This was really good. I used hot Italian sausage and microwaved my potato to get it started, then browned it in the skillet. Other than that I made it as directed. Very simple, very filling and very good. Thanks Chocolatl for sharing. Made for Zaar Stars Tag.
