Where do I find turkey breakfast sausage?
I find the Jennie-O brand at my local neighborhood Walmart or Winco. I see other brands of turkey breakfast sausage at other local grocery stores near me as well and they have very similar macros. If all else fails just use ground turkey seasoned with salt, pepper, and sage. You can even add a little maple extract if you have it.
Do you have a single serve meal prep version of this?
I sure do in Meal Prep Cookbook Volume 2! I had to make a few adjustments so it would only make the 5 servings so the macros are slightly different. You’ll of course find the macros for both in Myfitnesspal and the Macrosfirst apps.
What if I don’t have the Fairlife milk you use in this recipe and so many others?
I do love the Fairlife milk because it is higher in protein than other brands of milk by quite a bit. It also seems to be available in most places. Keep in mind when using milk in recipes like this one, 2 cups of Fairlife milk (26g protein) vs. 2 cups of regular milk (16g protein) is only a difference of 10 grams of protein. When divided up amongst the 8 servings, we’re talking about just over 1 gram of protein difference per serving. So in my opinion, using whatever brand of milk is available near you is just fine and not worth stressing about. Now when drinking a glass of milk yourself, those 10 grams of protein do make a difference.
