Eggo Diablo

Sep 27, 2022 | Breakfast, Food

Happy Wednesday everyone!  I don’t normally post that many breakfast recipes but this Eggo Diablo is definitely husband approved.  Mr. TAL loved it so much that I put it in my Sit, Stay, Eat 2 Cookbook (available for Digital download via my store) and I want to share it on the blog. A portion from each sale of my cookbooks go to Joey’s P.A.W. to help animals in need of wheelchairs and prosthetics.  My second book includes breakfast, soups, salads, sandwiches, and doggie treats.  Each recipe has been tested and approved by Mr. TAL and family!  This recipe is super simple to make and don’t worry if you break the egg yolk because it makes this dish all the more fun to eat.

How did this recipe get its name?
This Eggo Diablo was given the name by Mr. TAL because it is very, very, hot and spicy.  He loves spicy food and this recipe does not disappoint in that category.  Not only did I use hot sausage links, I added hot pepper flakes, black pepper, Jalapeños peppers, Harbanero peppers, and banana peppers.

How to make this dish crispy around the edges:  (you could always use bacon grease instead of butter)

I sliced the hot sausages in half and cooked them in olive oil and hot pepper flakes until middle was done and edges were crispy in a cast iron skillet.  I removed the sausage to the microwave just to keep warm.  I then sliced the peppers and onions and sautéed them in the same cast iron skillet with pepper and garlic salt until they were soft with a slightly charred texture.  The peppers were removed and butter was added to the pan to cook the egg.  Make sure the butter bubbles when it hits the pan and turns to a golden brown.  

Growing up, my dad made the best eggs!  He would cook them in bacon grease and the edges would get so crispy that I still mimic this today only with butter.  I cooked the egg on both sides until the outer edges were crispy and the yolk was jiggly in the middle.  Then it was time to layer the sausage, peppers, cheese, and egg.  I used extra sharp white cheddar but you can use whatever cheese you like.

A breakfast for the family:
This is a great breakfast for feeding a large family or a weekend breakfast when you have a bit more time as it is made in steps.  If you have any leftovers, they can be re-heated to make hot sausage sandwiches.  Just toast a fresh Italian bun and layer all your ingredients.
Note:  I washed and cut the peppers down the middle, the ends off, and scooped out the seeds.  I have also made this dish using the whole pepper without de-seeding them or cutting the ends off.  If the peppers are too hot for your skin, try using plastic gloves.  If you get the juice on your skin, use olive oil to stop the burning.

Making a breakfast bake out of this recipe:
Of if you love using your oven rather than your stove, bake the sausages on a sheet pan (slice them first so they get crispier), cut up your veggies and bake at 375 degrees until crispy around the edges.  Scramble a few eggs and in a separate baking dish, add your sausage, eggs, cheese, and veggies and make a breakfast bake!  Don’t forget your favorite seasonings.  Bake in the oven until your eggs get light and fluffy.  Top with more cheese!  You can make this as hot and spicy or mild as you like. If you try this recipe, I wold love to hear all about it.  If you have a family favorite breakfast, let me know so I can try it for the blog.  I’m always looking for breakfast recipes to make for us!
