Directions

1. In a large nonstick skillet over medium heat, heat oil. When the oil is hot, add the sausage. Cook, crumbling the sausage with a wooden spoon, until the sausage is no longer pink, about 3 minutes. Add the onion and bell pepper. Season with 1/2 teaspoon salt, cover, and cook until wilted and lightly caramelized, about 10 minutes.

2. Beat the eggs in a bowl with the remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt. When the peppers and onions are wilted, pour the eggs into the skillet and cook until just set, but still a little wet, about 1 to 2 minutes. Remove from heat; the eggs will finish cooking off the heat.

3. Pile the eggs on bread or rolls and serve immediately.
