    Sausage and Kale Frittata - The Lemon Bowl

    Breakfast is a pretty big deal here in our house as I imagine it is in any home filled with hungry little ones. I swear my boys could easily eat three breakfasts before we even head out the door to preschool in the morning.

    Sausage Kale and Feta Frittata - The Lemon Bowl

    To save time and avoid stress during busy weekdays, I always try to prep a healthy, protein-packed breakfast over the weekend to eat during the week. This fast and easy frittata recipe is made with all natural al fresco chicken sausages which are pre-cooked and made with just a few simple ingredients you can pronounce.

    For added nutrients and fiber, I add in sautéed kale then sprinkle the whole pan with crumbled feta before finishing it off in the oven. At just a little over 150 calories and 12 grams of protein per serving, it’s just the fuel I need to get through my workout and the rest of my busy day. As an added bonus, my kids eat it with their hands like a slice of pie. No mess = happy mommy.
