  • 1 Cup Red Quinoa
  • 2 Cups Water
  • 3 Sausage Patties or more
  • 6 Eggs
  • 2 Teaspoons Your Favorite Hot Sauce
  • 1 Green Pepper chopped
  • 1 Medium White Onion chopped
  • 1 15 Ounce Can Chopped Tomatoes drained
  • 1/2 Cup Shredded Cheddar Cheese
  • 1 Tablespoon Butter
  1. Bring the water to a boil and add the red quinoa. Cook for about 20 minutes over a low simmer until the water has been absorbed. Let this cool before you work it with the eggs
  2. In a cast iron skillet, cook the sausage patties
  3. In a large mixing bowl, beat the six eggs and season with salt and pepper
  4. Add the pepper, onion, tomatoes and cheese to the bowl and mix well
  5. When the quinoa has cooled, mix it in the bowl as well
  6. Bring the skillet temperature up to medium and melt the butter. Coat the skillet well with the butter, including up the sidewalls
  7. Slowly pour in the egg mixture, stir gently and cook for about 5 minutes - until it starts to bubble
  8. Transfer the skillet to a 350 degree oven and cook for 20-25 minutes. When a fork inserted in the middle comes out clean, the eggs are fully cooked.
