What kind of Whole30 sausage links do you like and where do you find them?

We are so happy to be partnering with Jones Dairy Farm for this post to share a clean, Whole30 compliant, sausage option with you! For this recipe we used their their No Antibiotics Ever Golden Brown Turkey Sausage Links. They’re the perfect flavor to go with this fried rice recipe! These all natural turkey links are from Jones Dairy Farm’s No Antibiotics Ever line and contain no artificial ingredients, preservatives, sugar, MSG, or nitrites/nitrates and are minimally processed. They’re also Certified Paleo and Gluten-Free, and each serving contains 10 grams of protein!

We love that Jones Dairy Farms is very transparent with their ingredients. The Antibiotic Free No Sugar Turkey Sausage Links contain just six simple ingredients: turkey, water, potato starch, salt, spices and lemon peel powder. They also have a variety of other raw and fully cooked options for breakfast sausages. Visit the Jones Dairy Farm product locator to find a store near you!

How do you get cauliflower rice to get crispy like fried rice?

We have a fun trick for you! When we want our cauliflower rice to get extra crispy bits in it, we add some hempseed. The hempseed crisps up really well and adds that extra bit of crunch to the texture you expect when you want to have fried rice. The hempseed just ends up taking on the flavors used in the rest of the dish, so other than the crispy bits you’d really never know it was hempseed mixed in.

Is this breakfast fried rice good for meal prep?

This fried rice recipe is great for meal prep to have breakfast on hand. You can make a batch Sunday, and then re-heat for breakfast Monday morning. You’ll appreciate the satisfying start to your week! If you have time in the morning though, it’s also super quick to make, especially since the Antibiotic Free No Sugar Turkey Sausage Links are pre-cooked and you’re really just heating everything up in a skillet and scrambling some eggs in it.
