A quick, easy and super delicious recipe made with ground venison sausage – this could possibly become your favorite breakfast dish

This spicy venison sausage egg scramble recipe checks off all four of my requirements for a good breakfast: spicy, quick, easy, delicious. If you have precooked venison sausage, this protein-packed, Paleo-friendly breakfast should take you five minutes from start to end.


Editor's Note: I always have two to three pounds of cooked ground venison in the freezer, and a pound thawed in the refrigerator ready to go for a variety of different recipes calling for ground venison.

Serves: 1
Total time: 5-10 minutes (if using precooked venison)
Paleo friendly: Yes

Ingredients:


  • ¼ to ⅓ pound of precooked ground venison breakfast sausage
  • 2 medium-size eggs (use fertilized farm-raised if you can get them; they have richer flavor)

  • Dried minced onion flakes
  • Olive oil
  • Tabasco (original)
  • Salt and black pepper (optional)

  1. In a small skillet, preheat 2 tablespoons of olive oil over low to medium heat.
  2. Scatter precooked ground venison breakfast sausage in skillet, stir until heated.
  3. Crack open and pour two medium-size eggs over venison sausage.
