Breakfast is Served with Johnsonville® and a Banana Split Smoothie

Breakfast is my favorite meal of the day but also the worst meal to prepare.  The alarm goes off and the snooze is hit as many times as possible before the morning becomes a rush and then the breakfast table is filled with people that want some food before their day starts!  Now what? 




I found myself in this situation a lot and I needed an attack plan. That is when I stumbled across Johnsonville® Fully Cooked Breakfast Sausage links and boom the work of preparing a breakfast that was protein packed and fast was found!  Johnsonvile must know what it is like in my house on work/school mornings!

Both of my kids love breakfast sausage so finding these already cooked links makes my job as a mom even easier. Johnsonville helps take the pressure off with these delicious, protein-packed and easy-to-prepare links and in 30 seconds - breakfast is served!  Hello easy!  Now, my kids would literally only eat sausage for breakfast but this mom wants them to get some fruit too.  I found another great way to make a meal out of these links by adding a simple smoothie to the breakfast table.  A favorite of theirs is my Banana Split Smoothie - yes, I know it sounds like a dessert which means kids will LOVE it!
