I’ve got nothing against egg yolks. They’re actually my favorite part of the egg. But sometimes I’d rather spend my fat calories on something else, like avocado or sausage. So while I always have a dozen eggs in the fridge, I usually have a carton of egg whites in there, too, for times, when I want a big ol’ scramble. Egg whites are really low in calories — around 60 for a half cup — and provide a healthy 13 grams of protein with virtually no fat or carbs, so you can get a little luxurious with the healthy fat additions.
But an egg white omelet on its own is pretty Spartan, although I love the color contrast of bright green baby spinach and stark white egg whites. Still, Spartan. I’ve been looking for ways to add more vegetables to all my meals, breakfast included, and there’s just so much kale you can stuff into a smoothie. So I cleaned out the produce bin for this breakfast scramble, which gets another kick of protein from turkey breakfast sausage (I used a Jennie-O turkey breakfast sausage roll). This is a single-serve dish, so feel free to double or quadruple the amounts for your family. And if you want to carb it up, roll everything into a whole wheat tortilla for a breakfast wrap.
