Breakfast Sausage

NAG-free Breakfast Sausage

Breakfast is the favorite meal of the day around here… Maybe because the good ones only happen on the weekend while everyone is home.

We sleep in, enjoy coffee/tea/hot cocoa, and relax. Then the guy makes something yummy. We have yet to find a ‘safe’ commercial sausage; but this one is super easy to mix up as needed, so we haven’t been looking very hard…
