Spring Leek & Sausage Egg Scramble

Ingredients:
8 eggs
½ pound breakfast sausage
¼ cup milk
1 cup chopped leeks, white and light green parts only
½ cup chopped spring onions
1 tablespoon freshly-chopped parsley
Sea salt and fresh ground pepper

Method:
1. Cook the breakfast sausage in a frying pan over medium heat, breaking the sausage into small pieces as it cooks with a wooden spoon or spatula. Once cooked through, add the spring onions and leeks and cook, stirring constantly, for about 2-3 minute, until both are softened and fragrant.

2. Crack eggs and break over a shallow bowl. Break yolks with a whisk or fork, then whisk together with the milk, seasoning generously with salt and pepper. Add eggs to the frying pan and mix with the sausage, onion and leek mixtures, cooking until set to your desired taste. Serve immediately.
