1 dozen white corn tortillas
1 lb Turkey Sausage (recipe will follow)
8 Large Grade AA cage free eggs
1/4 cup buttermilk
cooking spray


Beat 8 eggs and buttermilk in a large mixing bowl with hand beater. Beat until slightly foaming, or on the verge of whipped. (you want the eggs really fluffy.)
Lightly spray a heated skillet with cooking spray. Scramble eggs in skillet until almost completely done, then add Turkey Sausage. Continue to cook and stir until eggs are completely done, and sausage to egg ratio is about 1-2.

Nutritional facts:(per serving)

All of this nutritional information was gathered from each of the products themselves and then calculated to the servings size that I suggest.
Fruit is an integral part of every days food intake, and with few exceptions is generally not bad for you at any time in any way.
If you add half of an apple or half of an orange, or some other fleshy tree fruit to this breakfast, you will feel satisfied, and have energy from the natural sugars provided from the fruit.
Diabetics, of course, need to be cautious about their fruit consumption through the day as they monitor the total sugar intake.
I hope this gets some of you off to a good start tomorrow morning, I know it will me.
Good luck, and good eating.

Here we go. The Taquitos called for Turkey Sausage:


1 lb ground turkey(93% lean gives the best flavor to fat ratio)
1 tsp ground Black Pepper
1 tsp Garlic powder
1 tsp Mrs. Dash Spicy Blend
1/2 tsp Sage
1/4 tsp Poultry Seasoning
1/4 tsp Thyme
1/4 tsp Salt


Place all dry ingredients(herbs and spices) into a spice blender or pestle for grinding.
Grind spices until at a fine dust consistency. (almost to what the sage was before you added it)
Place 1lb ground turkey into large mixing bowl. Sprinkle spice mixture onto ground turkey and begin to mix by hand. Mix thoroughly so that spices are well blended into ground turkey.

Cover and place into refrigerator for one hour. This will give the spices time to "set in".


This can be molded into about 12 individual pattys or links for a traditional breakfast, or mixed with eggs in the following recipe for Taquitos.
