8 oz. Jones Precooked Golden Brown Sausage Links cut into ½-in. pieces
½ cup prepared salsa
¾ cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese

  3. Cook mixture in large nonstick skillet over medium heat until eggs are soft-set, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat.
  4. Meanwhile, beat together eggs, egg whites and salt. Stir in sausage.
  5. Preheat oven 375°F.
  6. Carefully fill peppers with sausage mixture; spoon salsa over stuffed peppers.
  7. Bake for 15 minutes, or until heated through.
  8. Sprinkle cheese over peppers and continue baking until cheese is melted, 3 to 4 minutes.
  9. Garnish with cilantro if desired.
