South Dakota Native Melinda moved to Colorado recently and was happy to learn it was the home of BOULDER SAUSAGE, which she grew up eating. “This is a breakfast staple in my home – it is healthy and delicious, and you can substitute egg whites to lower the cholesterol. My kids don’t even ask for bacon anymore – they want BOULDER SAUSAGE brand Cranberry Orange Breakfast Sausage!”
