Le Creuset Giveaway Finalist: Sausage & Eggs

One of five finalists in the Metrocurean Le Creuset One-Pot Giveaway ...

The recipe: One-Pot Sausage and Eggs Breakfast

The finalist:
Greg McElhatton, an almost-native of the DC area (he moved here before
he was 2), is a government contractor who in his spare time runs
marathons and triathlons, writes reviews for a variety of publications,
and "dreams of eventually buying a house with my partner so I can
finally have the room for all of my dream kitchen accessories."

Greg writes:

I
thought I'd avoid the obvious one-pot recipes and serve up something I
love to make not for dinner, but for breakfast. I'm part of a big
Italian-American family that especially around the holidays can have
anywhere from 10 to 20 people over, so this is a nice, no-fuss way to
get people fed. You can even put it all into the pot the night before,
then when you get up just pop it into the oven. (Perfect for, say,
Christmas morning while everyone is opening presents!)


Chop up
onions and peppers, and then add them into your pot with sausage.
Depending on what people's favorite part of the meal is, put as much or
as little of each of the three ingredients into the pot. Season with
just a touch of salt and pepper, then pop it into a pre-heated oven at
400 degrees and cook for 30-40 minutes. (You can speed the process up a
bit if you want to partially cook the sausage in the microwave, but I
don't do so. To me, part of a great one-pot recipe is how little there
is to clean up.)


Once the sausage is cooked through, pour your
favorite spaghetti sauce into the mix and stir well, then put back into
the oven until it's heated through. Make some wells in the mixture, then
crack eggs into the wells, as if you are poaching them, and cover the
pot and add back into the oven for a few minutes until the eggs are
cooked through.


Take out of the oven, optionally top with a little bit of grated Parmesan cheese, and serve hot.
