You may recall The Lady received a piece of cheese from Gary, her husband’s BFF, which he wanted her to sample and review. Thanks to Tom from Rogue Creamery (shout out to Tom: Congrats to you and Steve, of Portland’s Steve’s Cheese, on winning the Cheesemonger Competition at this year’s ACS Conference – job well-done – your case was gorgeous!!) she learned it was from Wisconsin’s Maple Leaf.
The Lady had a small piece of the smoked Gouda left and she took it and used it in an egg scramble yesterday.
With the help of her new favorite gadget, the KitchenAid chopper (similar to the one on the infomercial that runs every two minutes on cable TV), she made an egg scramble that The Man and I enjoyed with Chicken Sausage handmade at her store.
Walla Walla Onion
Maple Leaf Smoked Gouda
Salt and Pepper
Extra Virgin Olive Oil (EVOO)
Homegrown Grape Tomatoes as garnish
Sauté Chicken Sausage in EVOO until cooked through and brown.
Keep sausage warm in heated oven. Reserve oil in pan.
While sausage is cooking:
Chop your veggies into edible sizes;
Shred Maple Leaf Smoked Gouda;
Whisk eggs with salt and pepper to taste.
Add cheese to whisked eggs. Set aside.
Once sausage is cooked, sauté chopped veggies in reserved oil until brown.
Add whisked eggs and cheese mixture.
Cook to desired firmness.
The Lady served with Grape Tomatoes from The Man’s garden.
