Chef Meg's Low-Sodium Sausage
(110 cal for 2, if you use chicken (140 for pork))
I Used ground chicken instead of pork (though both are great, and so would be turkey).. added a chicken bouillon cube (which does add a bit of sodium), fresh sage and thyme from my herb garden, crushed red pepper, and mango-orange juice (because I was out of apple juice). I also like to add just a touch of juice when they are nearly done cooking, to give them a sweet glaze. They turned out fabulous.
Then, I decided to make a yummy frittata @ 251.9 cal per serving (1/4 pan)
(not my pic)

mixin' up the eggs
gooey cheese just out of the oven
You can use green onions in place of leeks, and onions instead of shallots (it's allll good).
My plate (1/4 frittata and 2 sausage patties) had:
Saturated Fat: 6
Sodium: 330 mg
Potassium: 382 mg
What a great labor daybor breakfast!
Hope you all had a nice weekend.
