I don’t do New Year resolutions but I definitely want to go out of my way to eat even more vegetables and plant based products as soon as possible. Call it my #VeggieNewYear. I find that I eat much healthier foods when I travel. When at home, it’s easier to snack unhealthily because my favorite box of cupcakes is less than $2 and easily accessible. What’s also a few bucks? A pack of MorningStar Farms® Sausage Patties. The veggie sausage with plant protein power is the better for you way to start your morning off right.
I went to my nearest Walmart and scooped up a pack of MorningStar Farms Original Sausage Patties and a pack of MorningStar Farms Maple Flavored Sausage Patties. They were right by the front door in the frozen meals/entrees aisle.
My total was a little more than $7. I decided that this would be Step 1 to introducing more plant based protein into my breakfast food and cutting back on the pork sausage I usually eat. MorningStar Farms products are not only for vegetarians – they are for everyone!
I decided to whip up a breakfast bowl that I decided to call the MorningStar Farms Breakfast Scramble.
- 1 MorningStar Farms Original Breakfast Sausage Patty
- 2 Eggs
- 1 MorningStar Farms Maple Flavored Breakfast Patty
- Shredded Cheddar Cheese
- 1 Red Potato
Cooking my MorningStar Farms® Breakfast Scramble
- I started with dicing and roasting my potato. Since red potatoes cook faster than white potatoes, I drizzled it with olive oil and a little salt and pepper before popping it it the oven 425 degrees. After 10 minutes I tossed the potatoes pieces around so that they’d roast evenly. I left them in for another 10 minutes.
- After the potato has been roasting for about 10 minutes, start on the actual MorningStar Farms Breakfast Scramble by cooking the patties. I recommend following the directions on the back of the package but shaving off about two minutes.
- During the last two minutes of cooking the patties, cut them up into the size that you prefer and pour in your two eggs for scrambling.
- Scramble to your liking – I prefer my eggs more done than not.
- After 20 minutes of being the oven the potatoes are nice and crispy, but soft in the middle. I then put the potatoes in the bowl, add the egg and sausage scramble, and then top it off with a bit of shredded cheddar cheese.
The End Result
I ended up adding a tiny bit of ketchup to my breakfast bowl and chowing down. This was a time when I didn’t even realize how hungry I was until I cleaned my plate. I always purchase MorningStar Farms sausage patties every now and then but this time was truly intentional. While I have no plans to become a vegetarian, I do want to make better food choices now and throughout the new year.
This breakfast idea was a quick, easy way to get a healthier and more filling breakfast than I would usually have. If you’ve never had MorningStar Farms products then I highly recommend at least trying a few. You seriously have to taste it to believe it.
