Gobbler Breakfast Wrap #Jennie-O

Gobbler Breakfast Wrap

Good Morning! I love when the kids get off to school with no hiccups. They wakeup on time, get dressed and then actually eat a healthy breakfast.  It makes me feel like I did a job well done.  I am normally an organized person, so when my family starts off the day in a fun and bright way, hopefully it inspires them to have an awesome day!

I adapted a recipe from Jennie-O with their turkey breakfast sausage links.  I love these links, they are so yummy.  I wanted something to premake for the week so the the kids could just reheat and go.

This is a super simple recipe.  Basically, just cook your Jennie-O Lean Turkey Sausage links.  Place on a plate when done.  Add your eggs to the pan and scramble.  Create an assembly line with your tortillas, eggs, sausage, cheese and spinach.  If you are eating them right away, add spinach during assembly.  Otherwise, if you are making for later in the week, add spinach after reheating.

The spinach could be skipped altogether, if adding veggies in the eggs.  There are so many possibilities with these sausage links.  Low carb tortilla. Low fat tortilla. Whole wheat tortillas. Low fat cheese. Flat bread. Artichoke hearts. Olives.

I will include what I made them with, but the sky is really the limit here.  One package of links makes 6 – 2 sausage wraps.

Gobbler Breakfast Wrap

  • Jennie-O Turkey Sausage Breakfast Links – Lean
  • 5-6 Eggs (depending how you make scramble eggs)
  • Cheese (cheddar or cream cheese)
  • Spinach
  • 6 tortilla wraps

Ok so there you have the beginning of a super easy and healthy make and take breakfast!  I know some of you would really like an exact recipe, but there are so many different takes and tastes that this will work for everyone exactly how they like it.

Enjoy!

Herbal Helpers for Colds

I read a short article about some herbel helpers that we can do at home for when our children or family members get a cold.  There are two things that can help lighten symptoms.  One, is Thyme-Honey syrup and the other is Peppermint tea.  I have used the tea trick for a long time, but the thyme one is new.  Thyme is really good for helping the body fight the cold better too.

I grow lemon thyme in my garden and mixed in with the perennial beds.  It is a great filler and awesome with fish.  Place some fish in tinfoil with butter and some lemon thyme.  Seal it up and place on grill until fish is flaky.  Yum!

Thyme can be dried and kept in a sealed container to be used in a cold helper when needed in the winter.

For Cold and Flu:

Thyme-Honey Syrup

Thyme works to loosen up mucus in the lungs.  Honey helps sooth sore throat and has antibacterial properties.
