Mountain Man Breakfast - Sausage and Egg scramble made in a Dutch oven.


  • 1 sausage log (I like Jimmy Dean's Sage)
  • 1 onion (chopped)
  • 2-3 stalks green onion (chopped)
  • 2-3 garlic cloves (chopped}
  • 8-12 eggs (scrambled)
  • Several mushrooms (sliced)
  • 1 bag shredded hash browns
  • 1 bag “Sharp” cheddar cheese (12oz)
  • Garlic salt
  • Pepper
  • Parsley (dried)


  1. Fry up sausage and onion.
  2. Add chopped garlic.
  3. Cook till sausage is almost done. Drain.
  4. Fry the hash brown potatoes till browned.
  5. Add all of the other ingredients (Except cheese) to the pot and mix well.
  6. Cook for about 40 minutes (until the egg is cooked through.)
  7. Last 5 minutes add cheese to top to melt.


Rotate lid and pot in opposite directions every 10 minutes or so to eliminate hot spots.

I use a 12″ Dutch oven with 8 coals on bottom and about 16 on top. You will use a lot more on bottom to fry up sausage so just dump the total amount on bottom to start then adjust to bake.
