Got some long day ahead of you?
Fuel your body with this Breakfast Sausage Wraps Recipe!
When we look at our calendar in the morning and we see that it’s gonna be a long day today, we can easily think of something that will fuel us to get things going. Perhaps, a pancake or some waffles to go along a nice cup of joe! But, do you really think that’s gonna keep you fully charged up for the rest of the day – or at least half of it?
No! While they can boost your energy in a snap, they are not meant to sustain that. Why? Because it’s sugar! And after that sugar rush, you’re gonna go into a sugar crash phase where you’re energy will start to deplete; hence, you need more sugar. And since it’s your busy day today, you’re not gonna have enough time to run over to the next doughnut shop to grab some.
So, think about it. Is sugar really going to help you throughout the rest of the day?
Well, you probably know the answer already.
And, we’re not here to promote this recipe. Instead, we’re here to promote the best way that you can prepare for a long day.
This Breakfast Sausage Wrap Recipe has everything you need to fuel up and get things done. It’s high in fiber and protein, which will help you feel full for a longer time. On top of that, it’s also refreshingly good that it fuels the mind to think positively.
So, whether you need to do something creative, or perhaps, today’s that big presentation, this is the recipe that you need.
Breakfast Sausage Lettuce Wraps
For the Sausage Patties:
- 1 pound chicken thighs roughly chopped
- 1/2 cup fresh mushrooms sliced
- 1 ea small apple peeled, cored, and chopped
- 1 teaspoon dried thyme
- 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
- salt and pepper to taste
For the Wrap:
- 1 ea head medium-sized lettuce iceberg, romaine, or butterhead
- 1 ea large tomato thinly sliced into 6 rings
- 1 ea medium-size onion sliced into rings
- Preheat the oven to 400ºF.
- Combine all the sausage ingredients into a high-powered blender or food processor and pulse into a fine-chop consistency. Do not overprocess.
- Form the mixture into 6 patties. Place the patties on a foil-lined rimmed baking sheet and broil, turning once, for about 6 minutes per side or until the internal temperature reaches 165ºF.
- Rest for 5 minutes before assembly.
- To assemble, sandwich 1 patty, 1 tomato slice, and 1 to 2 onion rings inside 2 to 4 lettuce leaves.
- For a much leaner version, replace the chicken thighs with chicken breasts.
- You may also use the lettuce, tomato, and onions as a salad instead of a wrap.
- Alternatively, you may choose to sear the patties in a cast iron or a sauté pan. Likewise, the internal temperature should reach 165ºF.
