A portabella mushroom blends seamlessly with the Italian sausage, while the peppers add colour to the dish. Perfect for an everyday breakfast or weekend brunch.

Recipe developed in partnership with Ontario Fruit and Vegetables Growers’ Association.


  • 1 large fresh portabella mushroom
  • 1 tbsp (15 mL) olive oil
  • 3 mild Italian sausages, removed from the casing and crumbled
  • ½ small red onion, diced
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 2 large russet potatoes, peeled, diced
  • ¼ green pepper, diced
  • ¼ red pepper, diced
  • Salt and pepper
  • ½ cup (125 mL) shredded cheddar cheese
  • 4 large eggs
  • Chopped parsley


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F/175°C.
  2. Place portabella mushrooms in a food processor fitted with a metal blade. Pulse until finely chopped.
  3. In a large non-stick, oven-safe skillet heat olive oil over medium heat. Add chopped mushrooms, Italian sausage, onion and garlic. Use a spatula to break up the sausage into tiny pieces. Once cooked, remove from pan and set aside. Leave any fat renderings in the pan.
  4. Heat the pan with the sausage renderings over medium heat.  Add diced potatoes. Allow to cook for 10-15 minutes until softened. Add diced peppers and increase to medium-high heat, continue to cook until potatoes are crispy, about 10 minutes. Add sausage back to pan; cook another 2-3 minutes before stirring.
  5. Sprinkle with cheese. Crack eggs in each quadrant of the pan. Season with salt and pepper. Place skillet in oven and bake 20 minutes, until eggs are set.
  6. Sprinkle with parsley before serving.
