A Heart-Healthier Breakfast

There are some dishes that seem to scream unhealthy. You can almost hear those ubiquitous sausage-egg-and-cheese sandwiches shouting, “Stay away! Don’t take one bite!” And yet, they’re so, so good—...

Bring some sizzle to your table! Sear, stir and simmer your way to a hearty meal hot off the grill.

This recipe is part of our Summer Grillers & Thrillers recipe special.

Recipe Ingredients

1 ½ tbsp Smart Balance® Blended Butter Sticks
2 tbsp Smart Balance® Cooking Oil
1 red bell pepper, sliced
1 orange bell pepper, sliced
1 large white onion, sliced
kosher salt, to taste
freshly ground black pepper, to taste
1/4 cup chopped fresh basil leaves
3 garlic cloves, chopped
1 tbsp tomato paste
1 (15-ounce) can unsalted diced tomatoes
1 lb sweet Italian turkey sausage
4 fresh whole wheat sandwich rolls, optional

Recipe Steps

Melt the butter and heat the oil in a heavy large skillet over medium heat. Add the peppers, onions, salt and pepper, and cook until golden brown, about 5 minutes. Add the basil, and garlic and cook two more minutes.

Add the tomato paste and stir. Add the tomatoes and stir to combine, scraping the bottom of the pan with a wooden spoon to release all the browned bits. Bring to a simmer, covered.

Meanwhile, grill the sausage over medium heat, turning them until golden and cooked through, about 15 minutes. Set aside on a cutting board and slice into 1/2-inch pieces. Add the sausage to the pan with the onions and peppers, and stir to combine. Cook until the sauce has thickened, about 20 minutes total. Serve with rolls or Italian bread.
