Spinach and Mushroom Scramble
with maple sausage
- Sage, fresh (opt) - 3 leaves, finely chopped
- Garlic - 2 cloves, chopped
- Turkey, ground - 1 lb (use dark meat if available)
- Thyme, dried - 2 tsp
- Maple syrup - 1 tsp
- Salt - 3/4 tsp
- Black pepper - 1/4 tsp
- Red pepper flakes (opt) - 1/4 tsp
- Oil, cooking - 1 Tbsp
- Baby spinach - 3 oz, chopped
- Mushrooms, any button - 8 oz, sliced (look for pre-sliced to save time)
- Eggs - 8
- Salt - 1/2 tsp
- Oil, cooking - 1 Tbsp
Spinach / Sage / Garlic - Prep as directed. Store spinach in one container. Combine sage and garlic in another container. (Can be done up to 5 days ahead)
Mushrooms - Slice mushrooms (if not pre-sliced). (Can be done up to 2 days ahead)
Make sausage patties - Combine turkey with sage, garlic, thyme, maple syrup, salt (portion for sausage), black pepper, and red pepper flakes. Mix gently with your hands until just combined (don’t overmix or the sausages will be tough). Form into patties, about 3 / serving. (Can be done up to 2 days ahead)
Eggs - Whisk together eggs and salt (portion for scramble).
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.
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.
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.
Serve eggs with sausage on the side. Enjoy!
Am I crazy or was the dry to wet ratio on the pancakes off? When I prepped, I prepped for 8 servings and the decided that was way too much so I used 3/4s of what I prepped which should’ve needed 3 cups of milk, right? I used two cups of milk and three eggs and the batter was really thin. Another cup of milk would’ve been absurd. Maybe I screwed up, but I think there’s too much liquid in the recipe. They tasted really good though. And the sausage was decent. Not amazing, but decent. And healthy. Skipped the eggs.1 Helpful
I followed the comments and used a basic pancake recipe and added in the spices. WOW! loved these. The spices were just right - not too over powering.0 Helpful
Kids loved the pancakes. Super easy and even I liked them - I don't usually eat pancakes.0 Helpful
Pancakes and sausage were really good. Didn't make eggs this time.0 Helpful
By mistake, put too much salt in the patties.0 Helpful
Pancakes were awesome!! I used the NYT buttermilk pancake recipe and added pumpkin spice after reading reviews and they turned out A++. Didn't make the sausage. Eggs were great too!0 Helpful
Loved the flavor of these pancakes! I agree with most other reviews, our batter was super thin and produced very thin pancakes. I'd probably just add the pumpkin pie spices into our normal pancake recipe. Also used pre-made sausage.0 Helpful
