In May 2009, I ate breakfast at Boma 4-5 times over the course of a week and had one of the most awesome breakfast dishes ever. I was fortunate to find a recipe for the exact same thing (or very darn close anyway). I made this again yesterday and it is a great meal.

It'll pack a little bit of heat if you use the full teaspoon of cayenne possibly, so in my last batch I cut that in half to make it more edible for my wife. The recipe previously listed it as a full tablespoon of cayenne and my wife made it like that and it would make my nose run the whole time.

The recipe also calls for baking the biscuits on top, but I would just bake them separately and pour this on top. I've tried to cook biscuits on top of chicken pot pie and this and it's always tough to get the bottoms of the biscuit to cook.

Someone make this and let me know what you think!




Sausage & Biscuit Skillet

Boma
Animal Kingdom Lodge

Ingredients

1 lb bulk sausage
1 green pepper, diced
1 red pepper, diced
2 yellow squash, large dice
1 zucchini, large dice
2 russet potatoes, medium dice
1 T granulated garlic
1T ground cumin
1 T ground coriander
1 tsp. tumeric
1 T salt
1 tsp. cayenne pepper
1 T black pepper

Boursin Cheese Sauce
2 oz butter
2 oz flour
1 pint heavy cream
1 package boursin cheese
1 T fresh thyme
salt and pepper to taste

Method

1. in a skillet over medium high heat, add the sausage and cook
until brown. While the meat is cooking, add half the spices.

2. Once the meat cooks for 10 minutes, add all the veggies
including the potatoes. Add the remaining half of the spices.
Cook for another 10 minutes until the veggies are tender.

3. Remove the skillet from the heat and drain the fat. Set aside
the sausage mixture for later.

4. To make the boursin cheese sauce, in a saucepan over medium
high heat, melt the butter. Slowly add the flour using a whisk to
form a roux. cook the roux for 1 minute. Add the heavy cream,
whisking as you go, to incorporate the cream. Turn the heat down
to low and cook for 5 mins.

5. Add the cheese and fresh thyme, sitrring as you cook for an
additional 5 mins. Add salt and pepper to taste. Remove from heat
and chill.

6. When it is time to serve this dish, place the sausage mixture
in a large mixing bowl. Slowly add the cheese sauce to make the
mixture similar to a potpie filling

7. Preheat oven to 350. Place the sausage and cheese mixture into
a casserole dish and top with your favorite raw store bought
biscuits. Bake about 20 mins or until the biscuits are brown.
Serve immediately.

This sounds great, but I have a slight concern about the potatoes. I'd call medium dice around a half inch...but I don't think you'll leave the potatoes enough time to cook? I'd estimate twice that. Just a thought, I'm definitely going to try this one out.

Honestly, I'd cook longer than the recipe calls for. I probably left them on closer to 20 minutes than 10 on top of putting them in the oven to bake. Even at that point, I wouldn't consider the veggies to be falling apart and I'd error on the side of them being soft than crunchy at all.

This recipe is for something that has a Indian/African bit of flavor to it. Not sure which as it's something you'd never find in an "American" restaurant.

At any rate, the combination of the veggies, spices, sausage, and biscuits makes for a fantastic meal. Just revisiting this thread makes me want to make another batch!
