Sausage vs. Bacon

Sausage vs. Bacon? Who wins in the food fight between the breakfast meats?

Sausage vs. Bacon

Sometimes you just want a little meat to go with your eggs. If you’re looking to eat healthy, finding a side can be difficult. Luckily, there’s turkey breakfast sausage and center-cut bacon. But which one is the better choice?

Well, both are better than their more common version. However, the winner of this food fight is a bit of a shocker. Center-cut bacon is the healthy breakfast champion. Though bacon isn’t often thought of as a good nutritional choice, this bacon—which is cut closer to the bone—is a healthy and delicious AM pick.

Sausage vs. Bacon: Two slices of center-cut bacon contain only 57 calories and significantly less fat, sodium, and cholesterol. Whereas turkey sausage has 7 grams of fat, 522 milligrams of sodium, and 67 milligrams of cholesterol—center-cut bacon has only 4.5 grams of fat, 255 milligrams sodium, and 12 milligrams cholesterol.

Eat like a kid again! Feel free to enjoy a side of bacon with your eggs in the morning and forget that guilty feeling. Unfortunately, you’re missing out on the 15 grams of protein that turkey sausage delivers. But with a breakfast of protein-rich egg whites, center-cut bacon, and a serving of fruit you should be well on your way to starting the day off right!

In this war of the lighter breakfast meats, center-cut bacon comes out on top!
