Spicy Sausage and Spinach Egg Croissants

Spicy Sausage and Spinach Egg CroissantsRecipe courtesy of the American Egg Board.

Recipe Ingredients:

3 Italian sausage links (12 ounces)
3 ounces baby spinach (3 1/2 cups)
6 large eggs, beaten
6 croissants, split
3/4 cup shredded smoked Gouda cheese (3 ounces)

Cooking Directions:

  1. Cook sausages in large nonstick skillet over medium heat, turning occasionally, until cooked through, 10 to 12 minutes; remove from pan. Let cool slightly, then cut lengthwise in half.
  2. Clean pan. Coat with cooking spray; heat over medium heat until hot. Add spinach; sauté just until wilted, 2 to 3 minutes.
  3. Pour in eggs. As eggs begin to set, gently pull the eggs across the pan with an inverted turner, forming large soft curds.
  4. Continue cooking - pulling, lifting and folding eggs - until thickened and no visible liquid egg remains. Do not stir constantly.
  5. Spoon eggs onto croissant bottoms, dividing evenly. Top each with a sausage half, then with cheese. Cover with croissant tops.

Makes 6 servings.
