Apple & Pear Maple Breakfast Sausage

Posted Jul 03 2013 1:59pm

I decided to create another breakfast sausage recipe out of sheer desperation. My kids could eat eggs  And honestly for the most part they do. Eggs are delicious, nutritious (60% fat & 40% protein), and easy to cook. There absolutely nothing wrong with eating eggs every day, it’s just a little boring and I don’t want it to turn into the only thing my kids will eat. Besides, we all need variety in our diets and children are no exception. I really like Paleo Magazine’s recipe , but wanted something a little sweeter for the kids. Then the idea came to me as I watched my daughter dip her salami rolls into maple syrup. Maple & fruit flavored sausage! I made this exact batch and had 2 jelly roll pans filled with average size patties that filled a gallon sized freezer bag. My motto is still go big or go home. If I am going to cook, I might as well cook a big batch so I have leftovers to stock my big butt freezer. This way I can have breakfast ready for the kids (or take some to school for my breakfast) in no time.  I hope you guys like this as much as my kids do!
