Have you seen all of the ads on TV for the $250,00 bowl of oatmeal challenge? Well I have, and I came up with this brilliant and quite delicious Sausage Breakfast Stir Fry…..and then I actually read the rules of the contest. They are looking for “instant oatmeal flavors” that they can sell in packages. 🙁  I suppose you could use dehydrated eggs and sausage…..

but why would you want to when you can make the real thing!! This Sausage Breakfast Stir Fry is so easy to make, and you even have options…you know how I love options! 😉

Since I did not measure the finished quantity of oatmeal, I will just explain what I did, lol

How to make Sausage Breakfast Stir Fry:

Bring 1 3/4 cup of water to a boil in a medium sauce pan.

To make using oatmeal: add 1 cup of old-fashioned oats, stir and cook for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally to keep it from burning.

To make using rice: add 1 cup of white rice, stir, cover and cook for 25 minutes. Fluff with a fork.

It does not really matter what kind of sausage that you use. I chose to use bulk, pork sausage…..

but you could also use turkey or even sausage links and just dice them up before adding to the pan. I wasn’t sure how much grease this sausage would produce, so I cooked it in a separate skillet. You could also just cook it in your wok and eliminate the oil. 🙂

Heat your wok or large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the oil, let it heat up, and add the sliced green onions. Cook for about a minute, until they become fragrant, and add the eggs…..

Stir the eggs around until they are “set” and scrambled. Add in the peas and carrots, stir to combine. Add the sausage, oatmeal/rice, and soy sauce…..

  1. This actually looks really tasty for breakfast!! I usually lean towards healthy muffins or yogurt but this would be so good..if someone could make it for me 🙂 Thanks for sharing your recipe..and bummer on the contest! What a good idea you have here!!

  2. Wow, I guess it has been a while since I’ve visited! I love the new look of your site! And this breakfast stir-fry is right up my alley. Sounds amazing with rice OR oatmeal. I eat eggs for breakfast every day and I’m always looking for new ways to prepare them. Yummy!!

  3. This dish screams comfort food. I love adding leftover rice to my “scramble” dishes but never considered oatmeal. I also enjoy cooking “different” breakfasts. It doesn’t have to get boring. I’ll plan my cooking so I’ll have leftover rice and some stone ground oats just for this dish. Thanks for the recipe!
