Here's a really great, high protein breakfast and very easy to make. So quick, you can enjoy it any day of the week. It's much skinnier since using a combination of one egg and 2 egg whites plus 70% less fat breakfast turkey sausages. It's also gluten-free, Paleo and dairy-free. Each serving has 202 calories, 8 grams of fat and 3 Weight Watchers SmartPoints.

Prep Time: 8 minutes

Cook Time: 6 minutes

Ingredients

Cooking spray

2 breakfast links, Johnsonville breakfast turkey sausages, sliced into pieces, see shopping tip below

1 egg, I like Egg-Land's Best

2 egg whites

1 cup tomatoes, chopped with liquid drained

Salt and pepper, to taste

1 tablespoon scallions, for topping (optional)

Instructions

1. Coat a small, nonstick pan with cooking spray. Add sausage pieces and cook, stirring often, until browned. About 3 minutes.

2. In a small bowl, whisk together egg and egg whites. To pan of browned sausages, add eggs and tomatoes. Scramble together until eggs are cooked. Season to taste with a little salt and pepper. Sprinkle scallions on top, if desired.

3. This recipe serves 1 but it can be easily doubled, tripled and so on.

Makes 1 serving

Shopping Tip
I love Johnsonville fully cooked breakfast turkey sausages. They have 70% less fat, no fillers or msg. Each link has only 35 calories and 2 grams of fat. You'll find them at most supermarkets in the same section where other sausages and bacon are sold. They can be stored in the freezer, if you aren't using them very often.
