Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 4 cups Idaho potatoes peeled and diced small
  • 1/2 cup yellow onion diced small
  • 1/2 cup green pepper diced small
  • 1 pound ground turkey breakfast sausage
  • 2 whole eggs lightly beaten
  • 6 egg whites lightly beaten
  • 1/4 cup skim milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground white pepper
  • 1/2 cup cheddar cheese low-fat, shredded

Instructions

  • In a large skillet heat the olive oil on medium heat. Once hot add the potatoes, onion, and green pepper. Cook until the potatoes are lightly browned and tender.
  • Add the ground turkey sausage to the pan in small chunks, about 1 tablespoon of meat per chunk. Stir to cook the sausage and lightly breaking the turkey sausage into smaller pieces.
  • While the turkey sausage cooks, combine the whole eggs, egg whites, milk, salt and pepper in a mixing bowl and lightly whisk together.
  • Once the sausage is cooked through add the egg mix to the skillet. Lightly move the eggs around the skillet with a spatula or wooden spoon to cook and scramble.
  • When the eggs are fully cooked remove the skillet from the heat. Top with shredded cheese and cover until cheese has melted. Serve and enjoy!

Notes

Top with your favorite no sugar added salsa or some Greek yogurt for some extra flare! Spinach is a great addition to this skillet. Any vegetables can be added or substituted to make this skillet your own. Feeling adventurous? Try substituting sweet potatoes for the Idaho potatoes!
