Savory Sausage Breakfast

Squash and sausage are two of my favorite breakfast foods and this is an incredibly easy savory breakfast! I usually make enough for the entire week and warm up via stovetop each morning. Enjoy!

Ingredients
• 2 tbsp butter
• 1 delicata squash
• 1 package sausage (This is one great sausage option. Basically, try to pick one sans sugar, hormones, antibiotics, etc.)
• Sea salt to taste

Directions
1. Melt butter in a saucepan. While butter is melting, chop squash in half, scoop out the seeds, then cut the squash into bite-sized pieces.
2. Add squash to pan and saute for about 10 minutes.
3. White the squash is sauteing, cut the sausage into bite sized pieces and add to the pan.
4. Cook for another 10 minutes, season with sea salt and serve immediately!

Savory Breakfast

There have been a few questions about what my breakfasts look like so here we go! 😀

I don’t eat gluten/dairy/eggs/soy/sugar (aside from the occasional burger/ice cream situation, oops but not) so I usually end up w some delicious veggie/meat combo.

This morning I sautéed spinach, delicata squash, sausage & sweet potatoes in Kerrygold butter! Top w a little fresh lemon juice/sea salt & bon appetit!
