It’s Brunch Time

Spring officially starts on March 20th! I know much of the United States is still experiencing some extremely cold weather, but it’s been gloriously warm here in California the past week.

The start of spring always gets me excited for foodie gatherings: picnics, brunch, and barrel tasting in particular. If you’ve been reading my blog for a while, you know I devoted a whole eCookbook to planning and making food for spring picnics.

But today, it’s all about brunch. I have been CRAVING a savory meal that can work for breakfast or brunch for a while. So I was pretty happy when I got Jennie-O’s All Natural Turkey Sausage in the mail along with a brunch theme for this month.

Brunch is about gathering together, catching up with friends or family, and enjoying the weather and food collectively. What better way to do that than gathering around ONE pot or pan?

Kimchi Eggs in Hell with Turkey Sausage and Feta

Shakshouka or Eggs in Hell or Eggs in Purgatory are all rifts on a familiar theme. I first became aware of it on Instagram. Because it looked so amazing I always assumed it was hard. But it is simple fare and shakshouka means “a mixture” in many dialects of Arabic.

I’ll stop here because I almost went down a black hole of foodie research. But it’s definitely a dish that I would want to read more about.

Anyway, normally the hell-like fiery red color comes from a mixture of tomatoes, onions, chilies or chili-based spices, and cumin, creating a spicy sauce that eggs are then poached in.

But I wanted to try yet another rift. I chose kimchi, turkey sausage, and feta to do just that in this Kimchi Eggs in Hell with Turkey Sausage and Feta.

Turkey

The Jennie-O All Natural Turkey Sausage adds a lot of great flavors, and you use the juices from browning it to sauté the onions, garlic, and kimchi in.

This is the part I liked the best. Seriously, the smells coming from my pan as I was browning the sausage was amazing.

Kimchi

My obsession with kimchi knows no end. One thing I’ve learned is that it pairs extraordinarily well with tomato-based sauces. I’ve made pizza sauce with it, tomato vodka cream sauce, and a marinara sauce, all with great success.

What’s so awesome is that even people who don’t like kimchi have liked these sauces. Cooking it with tomatoes gets ride of that funky flavor that you either love or hate but it adds a lot of depth and spice to the sauce.

Feta

After sautéing the onions, garlic, and kimchi, you add the turkey back in along with some canned whole peeled tomatoes. Once the sauce has cooked down a little, you stir in some feta cheese. Because brunch isn’t brunch without cheese.

You then crack the eggs on top and bake it in the oven for a little while until the eggs are just set.

Gather Around

Gather around the skillet, sprinkle some extra feta cheese and cilantro on top, and dig in. This Kimchi Eggs in Hell with Turkey Sausage and Feta literally went straight from the oven to floor (for pictures) to table, where we all scooped up our servings and placed it on top of ciabatta bread.

There was also some dipping involved, using bread to soak up all the extra sauce. It was a big hit, especially for my sister who just finished her 18-mile run. I can’t wait to bring you the next Jennie-O inspired recipe and happy brunching!

    I Like this recipe and going to make for family…

    1. Thank you! I hope you and your family enjoy it!

    This looks incredible. I like your leaner spin on this classic! I love how you master-minded that Kimchi and put those eggs through hell to the benefit of well, me! Thanks for sharing. (PS. Those photos rock!)

    1. Lol, eggs are best when you put them through hell and back, am I right?! Thanks so much Cindy!

  5. 5 stars
    Oooo.. So I WANT to love kimchi- I REALLLLLY want to– but so far it just doesn’t get me excited like sauerkraut does! BUT- I have a bunch in my fridge that I’m still trying to like LOL, so this might just happen in the next few days! YUM

    1. I’m the exact opposite! I want to love sauerkraut so much but it just doesn’t get me as excited as kimchi. Maybe it’s in the recipes. I tweaked a kimchi recipe to my tastes and love it so much now. But I keep striking out on sauerkraut!

  6. I so love kimchi but my husband doesn’t 🙁 So, you know! May be I should make kimchi meal in small size portion, just for me 😀

    1. That would be a good idea! I’m the only one in my family that likes kimchi but so far every time I cook it into tomato sauces nobody has noticed.

  7. Yumm! I love recipes that can work for breakfast, brunch or dinner and this would qualify. Looks great!

  8. 5 stars
    WHAT. YES. This looks so crazy good. I just picked up some ground turkey…so this is gotta happen this weekend. I’m such a fan of shakshuka and I love the idea of taking it to the next level with kimchi. Also, that GIF! <3 <3 <3

  9. 5 stars
    This is totally my kind of meal, I just love the spin on this traditional dish – kimchi (yum)!!!

  10. 5 stars
    wow that looks fab! perfect bunch for sharing! The photos are really good!

  11. Shakshuka, eggs in hell, or eggs in purgatory, however you name it this is such a delicious dish! I love your combo of turkey+feta, sounds so yummy!

  12. YUM! I don’t eat turkey but kimchi is another story. Love that stuff! Even without the turkey sausage I’m guessing this would be unbelievably delish! And now you have me excited for spring picnics. And Easter brunch. And these eggs!
