Texas Farmers' Markets, creating and preparing dishes from among the best the market has to offer. In January, hearty meals warm the heart and soul, and this satisfying one-dish meal can be enjoyed for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Below, find the recipe highlighting vendors Belle Vie Farm & Kitchen, Brazos Valley Cheese, Kitchen Pride Mushrooms, and Johnson's Backyard Garden.
Cheesy Duck Egg Scramble with Duck Pan Sausage and Vegetables
2 bunches JBG Organic scallions, sliced thinly
1 +/- tablespoon grapeseed oil
1 cup Kitchen Pride button mushrooms, sliced
2 bunches JBG Organic spinach, stems removed and chopped
6 Belle Vie Farm duck eggs, beaten
1 cup Brazos Valley Cheese Montasio cheese, grated
Salt and pepper to taste
Brown pan sausage over medium heat. Remove and reserve. Saute scallions in remaining fat. Remove and reserve. Add about 1 tablespoon grapeseed oil as necessary to saute mushrooms, stirring, about 3 minutes. Add spinach to pan, stirring to combine and adjusting with the addition of grapeseed oil as necessary to prevent sticking.
Return sausage and onions to mushroom and spinach mixture. Pour eggs over all. Allow eggs to set around the edges, then gently fold the mixture to expose uncooked egg to heat. Cover the surface with cheese, and cover pan until cheese is melted. Correct seasonings. Serve warm.
