Start the day with a healthy egg white, spinach, and sausage protein biscuit!
This post is sponsored by Premier Protein. I love a challenge and always do my best to knock that challenge out the ballpark, but this one was tough I tell ya! My challenge was to create a savory recipe using a protein shake. Now that doesn't sound too difficult but the shake was vanilla flavored! I could have created a million desserts but there's already a million out there so where's the fun in that? So I made these light and fluffy biscuits which normally would call for buttermilk and switched the liquid to Premier Protein's Vanilla Shake.
And I think I nailed it. My main concern was, would the biscuits be too sweet but they weren't at all. In fact, along with the chicken sausage they reminded me of when I add a splash of maple syrup to my breakfast and some will inevitably come into contact with my sausage or bacon. I'm a big fan of salty and sweet! To keep things on the light side I added a slice of reduced fat swiss cheese along with some wilted spinach. I skipped the egg yolk and went with fluffy egg white to ease up on the cholesterol. This is a great way to start the day and to bulk up on your protein. Make sure to whip your egg white before adding it to the pan to cook, you'll get a much lighter end result. And that's how you can add vanilla into your favorite protein breakfast choice my friends. Mission accomplished. You can find Premier Protein at most major retailers or skip the lines and order it online!
