Back-to-school and busy work days make for crazy mornings and the thought of squeezing in a hot and healthy breakfast seems impossible.  I want to help make a hot and healthy breakfast a reality for you and your kids by sharing this quick and easy recipe for a Skinny Sausage and Egg McMuffin.  This is our Skinny Swap on the full fat version that you could pick up at a fast food drive-through and you will save 150 calories and 15 grams of fat.  I have replaced the english muffin with a Thomas Brand light english muffin that is loaded with fiber.  I swapped out the full fat sausage for a turkey sausage patty and topped it with a thin slice of Sargento reduced-fat cheese.  I like to add a little Smuckers All-Natural Jelly on top for a little sweetness but that is completely optional.  You can cook this in less than 3 minutes and be out the door and on your way.  Enjoy!
