Sausage Skillet Scramble

Adapted from Real Mom Kitchen
Sausage Skillet Scramble
Makes 6 Servings

7 eggs
1 tbsp light butter with olive oil
1/3 cup fat-free milk
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 package reduced fat Jimmy Dean sausage
2 cups frozen cubed O’Brien hash brown potatoes, thawed
1 cup cabot 75% cheddar cheese, shredded
6 small flour tortillas OR 6 medium-size carb balance flour tortillas

Whisk together eggs, milk, and salt; set aside. In a large skillet, cook sausage until no longer pink; remove from skillet and drain. In the same skillet, cook potatoes for 5-7 minutes or until tender. Remove from the pan. Add butter to skillet and melt, then add egg mixture to skillet; cook and stir until almost set. Mix in sausage and potatoes. Sprinkle with cheese. Cover and cook for 1-2 minutes or until cheese is melted.

Nutritional Information (with small flour tortilla): 292 calories, 10 carbs, 17 fat grams and 22 protein grams.

Nutritional Information (with taco size flour tortilla): 393 calories, 28 carbs, 20 fat grams and 26 protein grams.

Review: Great recipe! The cheese really melted well into the mix and almost made the eggs taste runny - fab. While I thinks a small tortilla would work and would lower calories, you would probably need to eat it more like a tostado with fork and knife. With the larger shell, it could be eaten more like a taco, how I prefer it!
