This is a recipe I got several years ago but I do not recall who or where I got it. It's a very easy dish to prepare. Not only for breakfast, it can be served at a brunch or dinner party, depending upon who you're entertaining. If you aren't a fan of spicy foods, leave this one alone. If you are, enjoy!
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
1 pound sausage meat.
Fry one pound sausage meat, mild or hot depending on taste, until done. Fry it as if it were ground beef. Drain grease from the cooked sausage.
1 small onion, chopped.
1 dozen eggs
1/2 cup water
1 pound shredded cheddar cheese
1 teaspoon Salt
1 teaspoon Black Pepper
Crack eggs in a large bowl. Take a wire whisk and scramble the eggs until well mixed. Add onion, water, cheese, salt, and pepper, and mix again with the whisk. Pour into a 13 x 9 inch casserole dish. Mix in the sausage meat, spreading evenly throughout the egg mixture.
Bake at 350 degrees for 20 - 30 minutes or until the egg and sausage mixture is without any liquids left within and browned slightly on top.
Take one 12 ounce bottle of Chili Sauce and pour into a sauce pan. Cook over medium heat until hot. Spread the hot Chili Sauce evenly over the egg mixture.
Take 2 - 3 tablespoons of Chili Powder and sprinkle evenly over the entire dish. (I personally use 3 tablespoons.)
This is best served with either toast or flour tortillas. If you use the tortillas, prepare the dish as you would a burrito.
