Dr. E’s Maple Sausage Scramble

This is one of my favorite things to eat for breakfast! Egg Beaters are lower in calories than regular eggs, and they have zero cholesterol, zero fat and zero carbs. If you haven’t tried the chicken and maple breakfast sausage, you’ve got to – they’re sooooooo good!

  • 1 tablespoon chili oil (or olive oil if you don’t want the extra spice)
  • 3 cooked chicken and maple breakfast sausage links
  • ½ cup Egg Beaters
  • a dash of Everything But the Bagel seasoning
  • ¼ cup Mexican blend cheese (or your favorite cheese)


  1. Microwave the chicken sausages for a few seconds and then cut each one into thirds.
  2. Heat chili oil in pan over medium heat.
  3. Add the chicken sausage and cook 2-3 minutes until they turn a little brown.
  4. Add Egg Beaters to the pan and sprinkle in the seasoning.
  5. Using a rubber spatula, pull the outer edges of the eggs in toward the center of the pan.
  6. Sprinkle the cheese over the egg mixture about 30 seconds before you turn off the heat.
  7. Slide onto serving plate and enjoy!

  1. Hello Doc Steve, just a ‘little’ feedback (FYO) on your recent yummy sounding breakfast post, which attracted me…for two reasons: 1) it sounded pretty dang good, and 2) since ‘boiling water’ pretty accurately defines the extent of my chef skills, I figured such were still sufficient to enable me to follow your clearly simple steps. Result? Not good! Altho it might have been if I could have precisely followed your recipe, which unfortunately I couldn’t, so obviously didn’t. All of which explains where my feedback actually begins…with my failure analysis below.

    First thing (YOUR error), you failed to ID your ingredient’s store source. Turns out a crucial and fatal omission IMO, so I just picked VONS to look for your listed ones (who’s also paired with Albertson’s in Redlands, but has independent inventory), and who, aside from the EGG BEATER, didn’t have ANY of the remaining specific product names (which also, in retrospect, no doubt is the primary reason for my failure to duplicate your success). But going further into the details anyway, I’ll continue…

    THE most important ‘couldn’t-find’ ingredient was clearly your “cooked chicken and maple breakfast sausage links.” Von’s didn’t have any “COOKED sausage links” of any variety, but what they had were “uncooked MAPLE breakfast sausage links,” where I wasn’t thinking yet of the “cooked or uncooked” key descriptor requirement, and just saw the “…MAPLE breakfast sausage links” advert as hopefully a close enough substitute. Turns out, it wasn’t. Plus I had to gamble on cooking the UNcooked links long enough to be safe to eat. I took the risk, and thankfully so far, have had no ill effects.

    This still leaves the remaining ingredients with possible, but not too likely, major effects on taste differences with my final effort to duplicate (i.e. you used “CHILI OIL,” no such available so I bought and used “light olive oil” a possible but shouldn’t have had a major taste effect;

    “EVERYTHING BUT THE BAGEL” seasoning, Von’s had nothing like that, so I used just “a dash” of a guessed new seasoning I picked, with possibly ending some, but IMO not a likely major effect;

    And finally your, “Mexican Blend cheese”…got a different brand of what is labeled “Mexican blended,” but not your brand, which should have had almost zero effect (multi-blended cheese is still cheese, isn’t it?)

    That’s it Steve, you can see how much I can write about essentially a nothing topic, so be sure you don’t ever give me a significant one to write about…I’ll probably publish a book! LOL

    Thanks for your exercise in frustration! LOL

    Take care and stay safe,

      Hi Bill. I found the chicken maple sausage links at one of the Walmart stores in Las Vegas. It was in the frozen foods section where the gluten-free & organic foods are. The brand is Applegate. I already had the hot chili oil at home, but I found it originally in the Asian section of, I think, Walmart as well. Trader Joe’s has Everything But the Bagel seasoning, if you have access to one of those stores.

      I’d recommend giving it another shot. It’s pretty good.

  2. Hey, be careful who you invite as I might even take you up on that offer…so don’t be surprised if I do. Being a one year Dex6 user (40yr LADA T1), we could even talk shop. LOL

    No Ralphs in Redlands. Nearest one is in Muscoy (only 15mi), so I’ll keep your ingredients list in case I decide to give your recipe another try.

    Could you provide the nutritional value? Thanks.
