This fruity twist on traditional breakfast sausage is a welcomed change to our typical Saturday morning breakfast. We had a similar item at a hotel brunch last year and loved them! I'm not sure what took me so long to recreate them but I finally did.
To make Maple Blueberry Breakfast Sausage, you'll need one pound of ground pork breakfast sausage. I buy it already flavored with sage - Jimmy Dean's is good, or if you're local to Richmond, check out SausageCraft. In a bowl, mix together the sausage with about 1/2 cup of roughly chopped blueberries and two tablespoons of maple syrup.
Cook over medium high heat in a skillet as you would with regular sausage. Some berries will fall out, but they'll release juices in the pan and enhance the overall flavor. Enjoy as you would regular sausage!
