“You need to lower your sodium”.

YUP. That’s what Doctor Jon says…

Dammit. This sure puts a wrinkle in my quick and dirty breakfast routine. Generally I have an egg or two, and some chicken or turkey sausage along with a cup of Joe. Quick. Easy. Simple.

But Doctor Jon says to strive for 1500 mg of sodium per day, and definitely no more than 2300 – – – so about 500 mg per meal. He also made some other recommendations which I will get to in future posts.

My go-to brand for breakfast Sausage is Isernio’s Chicken Breakfast Sausage. Egads. 832 mg of sodium for 4 ounces is a deal breaker. Bear in mind that many foods inherently have a small amount of sodium to start with. An egg right out of the shell has about 70 mg, and four ounces of raw chicken usually has 70-100 mg.

My copycat attempt reduces the sodium by 511 mg, which puts this recipe on the list of keepers.

Here’s my workaround…

Jabberwock’s low sodium breakfast sausage

1 lb. ground chicken
2 tsp. poultry seasoning
1/2 tsp. pepper
1/4 tsp. nutmeg
1/8 tsp. allspice
1 tsp. brown sugar

Mix all ingredients, and create 8 equal sized patties (2 ounces each). Tip: if you spray a little cooking oil on your hands it makes this easier. Pan fry over medium until chicken is fully cooked.

Serving size is 2 patties.
