  1. Heat a nonstick pan with oil (portion for sausages) over medium heat. Add sausage patties and sear on both sides until cooked through, ~5 minutes per side. Set aside, covered to keep warm.

  2. Return pan to heat and add oil (portion for eggs). Add mushrooms and spinach and saute together until mushrooms are very tender and spinach is wilted, 6 to 8 minutes. Season with some salt. Cook for 1 minute more.

  3. Move spinach and mushrooms to one side and pour eggs into the center of the pan. Gently scramble eggs, folding in mushrooms and spinach as they cook.

  4. Serve eggs with sausage on the side. Enjoy!
