When your mornings involve getting dad to work, mom to the gym and work, and three teenage boys to school, there's no time to spare. Our family loves these sausage rolls on busy mornings.

Chef Meg's Super Speedy Sausage Rolls

cals: 229.5 fat: 8.9 g protein: 11 g carbs: 24.6 g fiber: 3.1 g

Make these rolls at night and pop them in the microwave (about 20 seconds) or toaster oven (on low) until warm. Pair them with a banana or apple, a peeled hard-boiled egg, and a cup of milk, and breakfast is ready to go in two minutes flat!

The boys love these on busy mornings. Try them with turkey bacon or even vegetarian "sausage." I also like to swap the Swiss for Cheddar.

I make them with whole-wheat pizza dough that I buy at my supermarket. I also make my own dough when I have time.

Here's my best tip: Instead of buying breakfast sausage, save the salt and fat and make your own. It's quite easy!

Chef Meg's Low-Sodium Breakfast Sausage

cals: 147.9 fat: 11.1 g protein: 10.1 g carbs: 0.6 g fiber: 0.2 g

Love your breakfast sausage but can't handle all the sodium? Try this lower sodium version. A 2-ounce sausage patty can have 170 calories and 15 grams of fat, plus 355 mg sodium! This version has 25% less fat, and 1/10th of the sodium.

Make a batch of these for breakfast soon!

What's your best busy-day breakfast?
