Turkey Sausage Scramble Stuffed Eggplant

When it comes to breakfast, there are no shortages of ways to make it delicious, healthy, and easy!

We had never really thought about making a stuffed eggplant for breakfast until we had one lying around that needed to be used. Eggplants are an excellent vessel for enjoying so many tasty filling combinations for dinner. So, we thought, why not breakfast, too?

For this recipe, we used our Turkey Sausage Scramble Bowl as the filling and topped it off with a 2-minute tahini sauce. But, you could also use our Bacon or Southwestern Veggie Scramble Bowls instead.

We chose to remove and save the filling from the eggplant for another dish, but feel free to blanch it and toss it right in with your scramble bowl ingredients to make it even heartier.

You can also get creative with the sauce on top. We went with tahini because we love the savory taste of it with the burst of fresh lemon. But, you could also use a salsa sour cream if you are using the Southwestern Veggie Bowl or a BBQ ranch if you are making the Bacon Scramble Bowl.

This simple stuffed eggplant recipe also makes a delicious side dish! Instead of using 1 large eggplant, use 2 small ones and prepare the same way. The cooking time will need to be adjusted down. Just keep an eye on them! YUM!
