Eggs Scrambled with Chicken and Apple Sausage

Eggs Scrambled with Chicken and Apple Sausage (Serves 1)

I think Chicken and Apple Sausage tastes better than bacon! I haven’t been able to find bacon without added sugar in months, so have not conducted a real-time taste comparison, but the sausage in my mouth is beating my memory of bacon by a long shot.

Prep and Cook Time: 10 minutes

Ingredient list:

Three fresh eggs
1 chicken and apple sausage (I use Aidells’ or Applegate Organics’.)
Extra virgin olive oil
Chipotle chili powder
Garlic powder


Cover the bottom of a small frying pan with olive oil and place over medium-low heat. Don’t skimp on the oil.  Crack three eggs into a coffee cup. Add salt, Chipotle chili powder, and garlic powder to taste. Add a dusting of turmeric, which is good for you and good with eggs. Stir with a fork or whisk to mix well. Slice one chicken and apple sausage into bite-sized pieces. Pour egg mixture into the hot oil and scatter the sausage pieces on top. Let cook undisturbed for a minute or two and then begin stirring the eggs and sausage with a fork until the eggs are as dry as you like them. Transfer to a plate and eat!

  1. I am currently taking rx for high cholestrol….your receipes sound and look yummy. i am a bit concerned about eating yolks…have you tried just the egg whites? also i though coconut milk/oil is very fattening?? my exercise consists of just walking, do i need to do more than that to see results while using your reciepes?

      When you follow the approach to eating featured on this site, your blood chemistry tends to improve. I eat all my yolks because there is a lot of good nutrition in them. And the yolks do a much better job than egg whites of making you feel full, so you eat less over time. Fat is actually your friend when you are worried about your health. Good fat from olive oil and coconut is healthy and helps you feel full, so you don’t feel hungry all the time (and so you eat less over time). I dropped from 213 to 184 pounds over the course of one year eating all the food you see on this site. Check out the Whole30 program at to learn the background of what I am talking about.

  2. Hey Tom, so the sausage you use is Whole 30 approved? I’m in the middle of my first Whole 30, and it’s going great, and I want to make extra sure I’m eating only approved foods.

    Thanks man!

    Yeah, it’s Whole30 good. I can usually find 3-5 varieties of chicken sausage at Whole Foods that includes no sugar or nitrates. The pickings are usually slimmer at Trader Joe’s; I can usually only find one “clean,” Whole30-compliant variety of sausage. I have never found acceptable chicken sausage at a regular grocery store.

    Went to our Whole Foods in Tulsa, OK. At first I was disappointed that the only 2 varieties of chicken sausage available had soy in them. But as I was leaving, the butcher did say that if I called them by 10 in the morning and let them know what kind of sausage I wanted and what not to have in there that they would make some for me. So it never hurts to ask if you don’t see a Whole30 approved sausage at the meat counter!

    Oh, and they didn’t have the aidell’s or branded apple sausage. The down side for not living in a hippie city! 😀

  5. I just made a hash with sauted onion, aidells’ chicken sausage, olive oil, and sweet potato. Soo good. I have found the best price on chicken sausage at Costco.
