Instructions
  1. Start by grating the tomatoes and discard the skin. Remove the seeds and white membrane and chop the jalapeno. Grate the cheese and chop the sausage into chunks.
  2. Heat the olive oil and butter in a pan and once melted add in the jalapenos and sautee.
  3. Add the sausage and fry till the sausage starts to get crispy on the outside. Now add in the tomatoes and season with salt, pepper and the chili flakes. Mix well and cover and cook for 6-8minutes.
  4. Once that’s done remove the lid and add the cheese and mix well till it’s melted into the sauce.
  5. Crack in your eggs and just gentle move them around, crack the yolk so it spreads. Cover and cook for 2 minutes.
  6. Now scramble the eggs after removing the lid and finish with some cheese, chopped parsley and chili flakes. Turn the heat off and cover with the lid and let sit for 1 minute so the cheese on top will melt.
  7. Then remove the lid and serve with your fav bread/keto bread.
