Servings 2


  • 2 Eggs
  • 2 tablespoons butter or substitute bacon grease
  • 2 sausage links or patties
  • 2 slices bacon
  • 2 cups mushrooms sliced
  • salt to taste
  • pepper to taste
  • 8 ounces spinach
  • 1 avocado sliced


  • Start by greasing a large pan with the butter (or bacon fat if you prefer); add your sausage (links or patties) and bacon and cook 5-10 minutes, until cooked thoroughly. Remove from the pan and keep near heat to keep warm.
  • Next place the sliced mushrooms in the same fat, using the leftover fat and bits to help season, cooking 5-7 minutes, stirring frequently throughout, and adding salt and pepper to desired taste.
  • Meanwhile, prepare your eggs as you prefer, whether that be poached, fried, soft-boiled, hard-boiled, etc.
  • At the same time, cook your spinach in a large pan over medium heat for 1-2 minutes, until gently wilted.
  • Once all your pieces are done, serve on warmed plates with your avocado slices, seasoning with salt and pepper to your desired taste.


I love the flexibility of this recipe in how various pieces can be swapped out. Sometimes I prefer bacon; other times I want sausage (or even Mexican chorizo!). Sometimes I want spinach; other times I want Swiss chard or bok choy. The truth is, this recipe works best as a starter template; make changes as you see fit, according to your preferences.
