Most breakfast proteins—ham, sausage, bacon—are loaded with flavor, but that indulgence comes at a sodium- and saturated fat-filled cost. Have your bacon (and eat it, too) by using a small amount to season an entire pan of plants. Bonus: The fat helps you absorb the fat-soluble vitamins A and K. If you don't have feta, you can try substituting goat cheese. And if you can have the extra calories and fat, adding a fried egg on top isn't a bad idea by any means.
