Steel City Afterburner Breakfast

Back to breakfast recipes

from Mike in Pittsburgh Tailgater

This is a concoction that can be put together in minutes, it's not only filling, it is actually great tasting. Here goes:

2lbs bulk Italian sausage
2 cans of sliced potatoes
2 large onions (chopped)
1 jar salsa
1 dozen eggs
2 dozen large tortillas
1 pkg shredded Mexican cheese

Brown sausage in a large pot (I use a dutch oven on top of an 'afterburner' - I've heard this called a fish cooker, or cajun cooker). This can actually be done at home the day before, but save the grease.

Remove the sausage from grease for time being, and use the grease to saute the onions and potatoes.

Return sausage to pot along with eggs, and salsa. Turn the fire on low and cook (stiring constantly) until the eggs are done to your liking. Spoon from pot onto heated tortilla (I turn the lid of the dutch oven upside down and heat the tortillas on the afterburner) then cover with cheese.

Best if chased with a six pack or two of Iron City Beer.
