Egg Roll Inspired Pork Tacos with Sweet & Spicy Dipping Sauce

Sausage is one of those things we keep stocked in our kitchen at all times. While we use it for a lot of breakfast meals, it can be used in all sorts of recipes.  Odom’s Tennessee Pride sausage was created with an original Odom’s family recipe with a secret spice blend and only the highest quality fresh pork. It truly has that real country flavor.

For breakfast, we can simply cut it into slices, cook it in a skillet and within minutes, we have a hearty addition to breakfast. With 200 calories and 9g protein per serving, it not only is a great way to start the morning but also can be a great addition to dinner, in these pork tacos.
