This recipe is perfect for chicken breasts but works well with ground turkey or pork. The spinach leaves are sautéed first to release their flavor before being them to the stuffing mixture.
It’s important to cook the sausage and drain off any excess grease before adding the eggs and other ingredients. I recommend using a pre-cooked sausage for this recipe because you’ll want it to be fully cooked when you add it to the other ingredients – and not raw like you would use in an omelet.
