Are you starting off your day with a bagel and a coffee… again? It’s easy for a breakfast routine to quickly turn into a breakfast rut.

 

People often sacrifice a well-rounded breakfast that helps fuel morning activities and stave off hunger for a quick breakfast loaded with refined carbohydrates and sugar. The goal is to strike a balance: find quick and easy recipes that balance carbohydrates – derived from whole grains, fruits and vegetables – with a lean protein.

One protein to consider for breakfast is turkey, which is available in a variety of breakfast-friendly and often gluten-free cuts, including links, bacon and ground. Jennie-O offers many quick and easy breakfast recipes on SwitchToTurkey.com and jennieo.com.

 

“It’s time for Americans to drop their soggy cereal, pudge-inducing pastries and boring granola,” says Barry Lynch of the Jennie-O Turkey Store. “The new year is a perfect time to start each day right with a convenient, protein-rich breakfast using turkey.”

 

To help incentivize Americans to start the day off right with a nutritious and complete breakfast, Jennie-O is kicking off a Breakfast Hall of Lame contest on SwitchToTurkey.com. Now through Jan. 31, consumers who visit SwitchToTurkey.com can enter the contest by submitting a photo of their uninspiring breakfast or a picture of themselves with their breakfast. The person whose photo receives the highest number of votes by Jan. 31 will win the grand prize: a two-week stay at The Biggest Loser Resort, in either location: Mailbu, Calif. or Ivins, Utah. Complete rules are available on SwitchToTurkey.com.

 

Find recipes – including a breakfast burrito, breakfast pizza and sassy scrambled eggs with JENNIE-O turkey sausage links – as well as tips on safe handling instructions for turkey on the company’s website.

 

Breakfast Burrito

Ingredients:

1 Package JENNIE-O Extra Lean Ground Turkey Breast

1 1/4 teaspoon onion powder

1 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder

1 1/4 teaspoon paprika

1/2 teaspoon pepper

1 egg and 1 egg white

1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce

1/2 cup wheat bran

1/2 green bell pepper, chopped

1/2 red bell pepper, chopped

1 (15 ounce) can of black beans, drained

8 whole wheat MANNY’S tortillas

Directions:

Put the ground turkey breast in a mixing bowl. Add onion and garlic powder, paprika, and pepper; mix thoroughly. Add egg, egg white, applesauce, and wheat bran; stir well. Refrigerate the mixture for at least 30 minutes or overnight.

Preheat a large non-stick skillet to medium high and coat lightly with cooking spray. Add the ground turkey mixture and stir to crumble and brown, 14 minutes. Always cook turkey to well-done, 165 F as measured by a meat thermometer. Reduce heat to medium. Add bell peppers and saute with meat for 5 minutes, continuing to stir and break up the turkey into smaller pieces. Drain the beans and add to the skillet. Cook an additional 2 to 3 minutes.

Fill tortillas with mixture.

Additional sides, if desired, light shredded cheddar cheese, CHI-CHI’s salsa, WHOLLY GUACAMOLE dip, lime juice, and cilantro.

Serving suggestions – scrambled eggs or egg whites and fresh fruit.
