Confession….I’ve never made my own homemade breakfast sausage.  That is until now.  And I have to say my Sunday breakfasts have been missing out.  These sausages are filled with spices and are the perfect addition to your morning breakfast.  I served these with eggs and sweet potato hash browns.  Yum!  My new favorite Sunday morning breakfast.  I first spotted this recipe in my new Paleo Magazine, but changed it up slightly by adding a couple different spices and using pork and chicken instead of beef.  So for those beef eaters out there you can use 1 pound of grass-fed beef if you prefer.  And one more thing, I made half the sausages with a little honey for the little ones and the hubby but for my sausages I left the honey out.  I gave mine a thumbs up without the honey and the the rest of the house gave them thumbs up too so either way they will be delicious.  Promise me you’ll give these a try one morning with the family.  They will knock your socks off.  At least I hope they do.  And another confession….I even ate these for some extra protein during the day. 

I hope everyone had a nice weekend.  I don’t know about you but going from the long weekend with Labor Day to a short really effected this household.  I really think they should make all work weeks 4 days and weekends 3!  What do you say?  Good idea?  I say yes, my vote is in.  I could use that extra day to get everything done and actually feel a little relaxed.  If that could ever happen.

Ok, enjoy the sausages…you have to try them!  And I’ll be back again this week sharing another “treat”.  See you soon!

    Hi, I love the idea of this recipe and can’t wait to try! Do you think these could be frozen/reheated easily?

    I found that taking boneless skinless chicken thighs and putting them in the food processor gives you a good consistency for making meatballs and sausage with a little less fat. Just a thought.
