Sausage Sprout Omelet

Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 20 minutes
Servings: 2


Cook to 145 F with 3 minute rest


4 sausage links
4 eggs, slightly beaten
2 tablespoons milk
1/4 teaspoon celery salt
1/8 teaspoon pepper
2 tablespoons butter
1/4 cup Cheddar cheese, about 1 ounce, shredded
1/4 cup bean sprouts
Fresh dill weed, (optional)
Fresh strawberries, (optional)
kiwi fruit, sliced, (optional)
nectarines, sliced, (optional)
lettuce leaves, (optional)

Cooking Directions

Cook sausage links over medium heat until done, turning occasionally. Cut into 1/2-inch pieces and set aside.
Combine eggs, milk, celery salt and pepper in a small bowl; beat with whisk until well mixed, but not frothy.
Heat 1 tablespoon butter in 8-inch omelet pan over medium-high heat. Pour in half egg mixture. Cook, gently lifting edges with a spatula so uncooked mixture flows underneath. When eggs are almost set, sprinkle half of the omelet with half the cheese, half the sausage and half the sprouts. Fold omelet; turn onto serving plate.
Repeat with remaining ingredients. If desired, garnish with dillweed and fruit on lettuce leaf.

Serves 2.
