Whenever I bake a potato, I usually bake a few extra for a quick meal addition. Chicken sausage can be found in most stores and is generally lower in fat than regular sausage (by about 70%). It comes in a variety of flavors. This a quick to prepare and tasty start for your busy day. It is lower in fat, gluten-free and a great diabetic choice meal.
Skillet Breakfast (With Chicken Sausage)

In a cast iron skillet or sauté pan add canola oil and sauté onions, garlic, till they begin to caramelize. Add sausage, potato, peppers and spinach an season with salt and pepper. When spinach is wilted, its done. Shred about 2 teaspoons of Romano cheese on each serving.
