If you struggle to get enough protein in for breakfast and/or don't have a lot of time in the morning to make breakfast - this recipe is just for you.
The best thing about this recipe is you can cook once and eat for days after. It is also customizable to your favorite things, though the turkey is the key component that make this breakfast so high in protein.
We shop for most products at our local HEB and I always buy the precut bag of butternut squash because after cutting a regular butternut squash to make this the first time, I vowed to never do that again. If the flavors in this aren't your favorite you can easily sub bell peppers for the butternut squash and omit the sage.
The macros of this meal per serving are - Calories: 410, Fat: 21g, Carbs: 10g , Protein: 42g -- yes, 42g of protein!! It is a little light on the carbs so I usually had some fruit on the side for more carbs and fiber.
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 pound turkey sausage (93% lean)
1 tablespoon minced sage + extra sage leaves for garnish
12 eggs whisked
Salt and pepper to taste
I cut this into four servings and eat one for breakfast each morning!
