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!
