Joe's Special

This San Francisco specialty turns straightforward scrambled eggs into a distinctive dish. To stay true to the recipe's roots, serve with toasted sourdough bread. Replace the chard with packaged, washed spinach. Use baby spinach to avoid chopping altogether.

  • Yield: 4 servings (serving size: 1 cup egg mixture and 1 toast slice)

Ingredients

  • 1/2 teaspoon dried basil

Combine the first 4 ingredients in a medium bowl, stirring with a whisk.

Remove casings from sausage. Cook sausage in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat until lightly browned; stir to crumble. Add onion; cook 3 minutes or until onion is tender.
