Last week we talked about scrapple and a couple options to cook the perfect pieces of scrapple without it falling apart. But sometimes it’s nice to not care about whether the scrapple crumbles or not. Which is why this week we’re coming at you with a fun twist and a good way to use scrapple that doesn't require it to stay in one piece. Drum roll please: Scrapple Breakfast Pizza!
What you’ll need for this recipe:
- 1 pound Stoltzfus Meats scrapple, sliced
- 4 tablespoons Pennsylvania maple syrup, divided
- 2 tablespoons butter
- 8 eggs
- 2 tablespoons milk
- Salt and pepper, to taste
- 1 prepared pizza crust
- 1 cup smoked cheddar cheese, shredded
- 2 tablespoons green onion, thinly sliced (optional)
How to make Scrapple Breakfast Pizza:
Begin by preheating the oven to 450°F.
While the oven preheats, we’ll work on making the pizza toppings! Heat a skillet over medium-high heat and fry the scrapple slices, without turning, until brown, for about five minutes. Flip the slices to cook on the second side, and, as they cook, break them into smaller pieces with a wooden spoon – they should become almost like “scrapple crumbles.” Do this until all the scrapple is brown, about another five minutes.
Reduce heat, add two tablespoons of the maple syrup, and cook for one minute, stirring gently to allow the spice of the scrapple and the sweetness of the maple syrup to mix together. Remove from heat and set aside.
In the same skillet, melt butter over medium heat. In a bowl, whisk together the eggs and milk and season with salt and pepper, to taste. Remember, the scrapple already has a great mixture of spices, so keep that in mind when seasoning! Add the egg mixture to the skillet and scramble, until almost cooked through. The eggs do not need to completely set in this step, as they will finish cooking in the oven.
In the preheated oven, prebake the pizza crust for seven minutes. Remove the crust and brush with the remaining two tablespoons of maple syrup.
Now time to add the toppings! Top the crust with scrambled eggs, scrapple, and cheese. Return to the oven and bake three minutes, or until the cheese is melty. Before serving, garnish with sliced green onions.
This is one of those awesome recipes where you can enjoy it immediately or prepare ahead of time for easy breakfasts! Leftover slices can be put in a ziplock bag and frozen. When ready to eat, we recommend moving the slice from the freezer to the fridge overnight to allow it to thaw. Just microwave for about a minute and enjoy a quick, easy breakfast on the go!
