Mrs J is out of town visiting her sis, they meet halfway between each other and for Mrs J it’s an hour drive or so. They usually meet up at the local Cracker Barrel for brunch and a chat. Not going anywhere with this, but I do need some text now and again to pad out my pictures.
Pictures? Yes, I have one today.
I was wondering this morning what fabulous breakfast I would make for myself just as soon as Mrs J took off. A browse through the big freezer in the section where we keep the sausage turned up a package of the boudin sausage I bought a looong time ago. Figured I’d better use some of it up. I’ve scrambled it with eggs before and enjoyed it so that’s the direction I took today.
The links thaw fast, and semi frozen sausages make peeling the casing easy. I crumbled the contents into a hot non stick pan with some oil and a sliced onion. Cook those over medium high heat until the onions wilt and the boudin is showing signs of browning, toss some sliced fresh jalapenos in there for some spice. I sprinkled in some red pepper flakes while I was at it. Once the boudin has as much brown on it as not, add some beaten eggs and let them cook a bit, then stir and fold them over lightly. Serve when the eggs are how you like them.
As a side note, the cherry tomatoes are from the patio garden container-picked fresh this morning.
