This recipe originally ran in the September 2005 edition of Heart of the Home.


  • 6 eggs
  • 1 tablespoon cooking oil
  • 1 pouch frozen sausage and vegetable mixture, such as Jimmy Dean Breakfast Skillets (any variety)
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1 1/2 cups salsa
  • 1 1/4 cups sour cream, optional
  • 6 flour tortillas, optional


  1. Beat eggs in a small bowl; set aside.
  2. Heat a large, nonstick skillet with oil over medium heat; pour in pouch contents. Heat, stirring occasionally, for 7 minutes. Push mixture to one side of skillet; pour beaten eggs into other side. Scramble eggs until cooked, about 2 to 3 minutes. Stir scrambled eggs and pouch mixture together until evenly blended; remove from heat.
  3. Divide mixture evenly among 6 plates. Top each portion with cheese, salsa and sour cream. Serve with warmed flour tortillas, if desired.
