Are you looking to try a new vegetarian breakfast recipe? I know you might be a meat eater like I am, I love my bacon and sausage don’t get me wrong, but sausage has so much fat in it even the lean packages. I decided to look around the store in the vegetarian section and came across Morning Star Sausage patties. I decided to give them a try to see if they would come anywhere close to real sausage and to my surprise the sausage was great. The taste is pretty close to the real thing and only has 3 grams of fat per patty instead of real sausage patties that can have anywhere to 7 grams of fat to 15 grams of fat. I call this my “Sausage” Veggie Scramble! I Promise I will have you hooked on this great morning recipe so that you will never want to skip a breakfast again.
I also like to use fresh vegetables in this recipe too. This helps with your vegetable servings total for the day. With this you get at least 2 servings. Some of the other types of vegetable that are great to add in this recipe are bell pepper, mushrooms, and asparagus. Getting all your fruit and vegetable servings in a day will help keep you stay in on track with your low calorie diet and it’s not a salad! Hope you enjoy this vegetarian breakfast recipe as much as I do.
Prep time:1 Minute
Total time: 10 minutes
4 egg whites
1 Morning star Sausage patty
¼ cup of onion (red, white, yellow or green your choice)
1 cup of loosely packed spinach
½ Roma tomato
½ of sliced cheese (preferred 2%)
Salt, pepper, and red pepper flakes to taste
1.Follow the directions on the package to heat up the sausage patty. (cook in the microwave for 45 seconds) While that is in the microwave slice up your onions and put to the side. Also tear the spinach into smaller piece (in half) and also slice the tomato into bite size piece. Once sausage is done cut into bite size pieces.
2.In a bowl mix together 4 egg whites. Add salt and pepper to taste (optional)
3.In an 8inch (omelet) pan, on medium high heat. Add the onions and sausage stir for about 1 to 2 minute to get the onion a little soft and starting to turn brown. Next you want to add the egg mixture to the onions and sausage. Stirring every 30 seconds to let the egg cook.
4.Once the egg is almost cooked which will be about 3 to 4 minutes into cooking it you will want to add the cheese. I like to tear mine into little strips. Let cheese melt for 30 second to a minute and then mix everything together. Once that has melted it’s time to add in the spinach and tomato. I just leave it on for less than a minute and then add to my plate. Add red pepper flakes to taste (optional). Enjoy
