Take a tip from the English, add half a fried tomato and a couple of mushroom caps to lighten things up a little.

Summer is a great time to experiment with adding vegetables to your breakfast plate. Summer squash or zucchini coins, Swiss chard, corn, peppers & onions, etc… all work well and benefit from a little sausage, ham, or bacon grease.

And mine.

Not every day, perhaps, but perfectly fine as part of a breakfast rotation, assuming you don't have any medical conditions that require a strict diet.

You could add a side of fresh fruit, something with fiber.

Personally, I'd add some kind of breakfast potatoes to those eggs and sausages, just because I like breakfast potatoes.

No. Most types of sausage contain a significant amount of saturated fats and salt. Consuming large quantities of saturated fats can increase the risk of heart disease.
 
Well, nutritionfacts.org is a vegan website that has almost no creditability within the science community. They can't even distinguish the difference between cholesterol and lipoproteins and they think LDL is cholesterol, which it isn't, cholesterol is a singular molecule, there is just one type of dietary cholesterol, full stop.

LDL and HDL are lipoproteins which are air tight containers that carries and transports fat molecules such as triglycerides, phospholipids, and cholesterol and they carry all the fat soluble vitamins of A,D,E and K as well as CoQ10 as well as a bunch of other molecules to all cells throughout the body and simply because all these molecules are hydrophobic and needed to be transported this way.

It's a little more complicated than simply LDL cholesterol causes heart disease because LDL cholesterol is also mandatory for life. Are there some LDL "particles" that are oxidated and full of free radicals, you bet, and how do these become this way, through some lifestyle factors like smoking, chemicals etc but as it relates to diet it's inflammation caused by the overconsumption of carbohydrates, and more specifically refined carbohydrates and added sugars, so yeah a higher level of "oxidized LDL" can be problematic and increase the likelihood of heart disease, so basically stay away from foods high in refined carbs and added sugar like Ultra Processed Foods that now make up over 70% of the American diet and maybe heart disease would start to come down.

A Med type diet is probably a decent diet to adopt or any diet that is basically a whole food diet, which BTW would include a vegetarian or vegan diet, which only need to be supplemented with a few nutrients to make them comply with a healthy alternative, just don't mislead people believing animals for food is basically death on a plate, like that website is famous for promoting. imo.
