Want to add even more protein?

Add a fried egg or over medium egg to each serving of these protein bowls for an extra boost of protein. Simply crack an egg into the skillet and leave it sunnyside up until the whites are set and the yolk is still runny. Or, mix it up and scramble the eggs before adding them into the hash.

What can I use in place of chicken sausage?

You can swap out the chicken sausage for breakfast sausage, bacon, or even tofu for a vegetarian option. Or, simply leave it out altogether and add more veggies instead.
