One of my favorite things about the weekend is definitely brunch time. It’s that one time I feel one hundred percent relaxed. And I get to have a glass or two of Rosé. Of course, brunch isn’t complete without the perfect breakfast sausage. I have made these a few times in the past couple of weeks and I realized I had not shared it with you yet. So, here we go!
We all know there are a shit ton of breakfast sausages on the market. But, there are very few without all the BS ingredients. Homemade sausages are not only the best way to go, but they are incredibly easy to make. Now, I prefer using ground pork when making sausages but you can certainly use turkey or chicken.
If you opt to grind your own pork, I suggest using pork shoulder. It contains just the right amount of fat to keep your sausages nice and juicy.
Freezer friendly meals/dishes have been my favorites lately. With the kids back in school, I can imagine they will become your favorites as well. And these sausages will be the perfect addition to your breakfast meal-prep. I know how much Moms and Dads worry about feeding their children a delicious but nutritious breakfast. There are so many “nutritious” breakfast items on the market and it can be very overwhelming.
I am not a Mother yet, but I know how incredibly hard it is for busy families to cook a healthy meal every day. Meal-prepping healthy freezer-friendly dishes and meals are the perfect way to help your family stay on track. That is specifically why I wanted to keep these sausages Whole30 and Paleo friendly. They are truly all natural and bullshit-free. I think that should be a new recipe category for us right? Bullshit Free (I just had to say it again).
