When sausage is browned…. Spread sausage evenly over the skillet bottom…. Re-blend the egg mixture…. And gently pour over the cooked sausage…. Turn to medium heat and slowly cook with lid on…. Until top starts to look done… peek up the edge to make sure it is not too dark on the bottom side…. Carefully cut into equal quarters….
