Protein is the most filling macronutrient and the variety of proteins on this breakfast skewer will keep you fueled for hours. Italian sausage links work better than traditional breakfast sausages here because they are thicker and sturdier. They do not cook as fast as breakfast sausage, so they will not burn while the bacon crisps around the melting cheese.
