Power Breakfast: Egg with Soy/Veggie Sausage

The third installation in the Power Breakfast series: This b-fast has been a standby of mine for years now, plus it's super fast when you're on the go. I used to make it at the office all the time.

You'll need one egg. I use free range, grain fed, no hormone, no antibiotic, organic eggs. I know that's a mouthful already. The grain fed aspect means the hens are vegetarian (did you know some are not? yuck!) and you're getting more omega 3's than with the average egg. Then, I use a Morningstar fake sausage patty. See picture below for how the package looks.

How to make it (see photos below for reference):
1 serving, 150 calories
  1. Put the frozen sausage in a small microwave safe bowl and nuke on high for 30 seconds.
  2. Crack the egg over the sausage. Place a piece of paper towel over the bowl-this is important because the yolk can pop and make a real mess in the microwave.
  3. Nuke for about 60 seconds more on 80% power. It might be a trial-and-error thing here because every microwave is different, plus I like my yolk runny. If you like it more firm you might want to nuke it for longer.
  4. Sprinkle with salt and pepper and enjoy!!
