  • Knife and Cutting Board
  • Large bowl
  • whisk/fork
  • Frying Pan
  • spatula
  • Cheese grater


  • 6 links breakfast sausage sliced
  • 6 slices bacon chopped
  • 4 oz hard salami (such as Genoa) cubed
  • 1 small onion sliced
  • 1 medium bell pepper sliced
  • 6 large eggs
  • ¼ cup sour cream
  • ½ cup cheddar cheese grated
  • 2 stalks green onion (scallion) sliced
  • salt and pepper


Prepare Protein Scramble Ingredients

  • Slice bacon, breakfast sausage, and salami into bite sized pieces. Thinly slice onion, bell pepper, and green onions. Grate cheddar cheese and set aside until needed.
    6 links breakfast sausage, 6 slices bacon, 4 oz hard salami (such as Genoa), 1 small onion, 1 medium bell pepper, ½ cup cheddar cheese
  • Crack eggs into a large bowl and add in the sour cream. Beat with a fork or a whisk until well combined. The mixture should be consistent pale yellow with no unmixed egg whites or sour cream visible.
    6 large eggs, ¼ cup sour cream

Cooking Instructions

  • Place a frying pan over medium-high heat. Once hot add raw sliced bacon and sausage. Fry until cooked through, and just starting to brown and crisp. (5 - 8 minutes)
    6 slices bacon
  • Add chopped salami and continue to fry until the salami, bacon, and sausage have reached a level of crispness you are satisfied with. If the pan contains a lot of rendered fat, drain off a portion now to avoid greasy eggs (2 - 3 minutes)
    6 links breakfast sausage, 4 oz hard salami (such as Genoa)
  • Next add the sliced onions and pepper to fry until softened. (1 minute)
    1 small onion, 1 medium bell pepper
  • Stir in egg mixture, and using a spatula begin to combine and scramble everything in the pan. Cook eggs to desired doneness. (3-5 minutes)
  • Stir in grated cheese, top with sliced green onion, and season to taste with salt and pepper.
    2 stalks green onion (scallion), salt and pepper


Breakfast Sausage: Choose any type of sausage you are comfortable with, even hot Italian sausage or chorizo could be used in place of breakfast sausage. 
Hard Salami: Cured salami like genoa is perfect and crisps nicely when pan fried. 
Bacon: Some bacon contains more sugar than others, so choose your favourite low sugar bacon for this recipe. 
Avoid adding salt to the raw egg mixture to avoid watery eggs.
The meats may have salt of their own so add salt at the end after you have tasted the result.
