Harvest Turkey Sausage Breakfast Scramble

This Harvest Breakfast Scramble is the protein-packed breakfast that will power you through you day and give you all the fall feels.

Today we’re hanging out at home, maybe venturing to the zoo, and going to run a few errands. I’m also looking forward to the weekend. 

This is insanity but the past couple of days, I’ve woken up BEFORE my alarm. This is an act of magic. I want to run around high-fiving everyone, except everyone else is sleeping!! WHAT. (Ok, except the Pilot but he leaves for work super early.) I don’t even know what to do first. Answer emails? Drink tea in the glorious silence? Or even make a real breakfast for everyone!! Liv woke up to pancakes that weren’t pre-frozen (I usually make huge batches of these pancakes to freeze for the girls), and I was actually dressed in real human clothes. Most days I’m at preschool drop-off in the shirt I slept in, and praying we’re not late so I don’t have to walk into the office. 

Harvest Breakfast Scramble

For today, I have a quick and easy savory breakfast recipe for ya. This is one of those things I made on the fly, mostly because I really wanted a high-protein breakfast that wasn’t just eggs. I picked up some turkey sausage from Whole Foods, and remembered this awesome harvest turkey meatloaf from last year. (I highly, highly recommend it!! It’s an awesome fall dinner with roasted veggies and mashed sweet potatoes).

(Let’s put sausage down under the least attractive food to photograph. Let’s just roll with it.)

I decided to inject a little fall spirit into my egg scramble, and it basically tasted like healthy Thanksgiving on a plate. 

Here’s the quick recipe if you’d like to give it a try!

Harvest breakfast scramble with turkey sausage, apples and sage.


I’ve been enjoying this with toast, or in a bowl with an extra over easy egg on top. 


Harvest Turkey Sausage Breakfast Scramble


  • 1 chopped green apple
  • 1/2 sweet onion
  • 2 ribs of celery, chopped
  • 3 cloves of garlic
  • One package turkey sausage (four sausages), diced
  • 4 eggs
  • 2 tbsp chopped sage
  • salt and pepper to taste


  1. Saute first four ingredients in olive oil and season well with salt and pepper.
  2. After they’re soft (about 5 minutes), stir in one package of turkey or chicken sausage and brown until cooked through.
  3. Add in 4 whisked eggs, season with salt, and gently flip the eggs, scrambling them with the sausage. Stir in two heaping tablespoons of fresh sage. Top with extra pepper if you’d like.


  • Serving Size: 2

SO good.

Hope you have a wonderful day and I’ll see ya soon on the Family page.

    Maybe you’re waking up so early because of the sugar detox from the 7-day challenge! Extra time in the morning, especially when it’s intentional, is the BEST!

    Had to laugh at your photography comment about sausage. Exactly why I do not shoot certain foods! And if you’re looking for anything to do, I have like a zillion things I could use help with!

    This recipe looks awesome, I’ll definitely try it out. Also, if you like brussel sprouts, I just tried out this recipe a few weeks ago that just really reminded me of fall. I’m sure it could be easily adapted, and it was delicious. http://www.wellplated.com/chicken-apple-sweet-potato-and-brussels-sprouts-skillet/

    This would be perfect with breakfast potatoes too! It might have to be on the meal plan for next week!

    Love the sweet and savory action here! I know that sausage is not the most beautiful food to photograph but It sounds pretty amazing in this scramble. Such an easy one-dish breakfast! Thank you for sharing 🙂

    Adding green apple is such a good idea! I love discovering new things that don’t seem like they go together but do. My recent discovery was putting nut butter on sweet potatoes. Genius!!
