Homestyle Country Sausage~ A Gooseberry Patch Cookbook Review!

Homestyle Country Sausage!

When it comes to sausage, it can get pretty boring. Secret: My youngest son and I are not fans of pre-blended sausage. Simply put- I like to make my own. I am weird like that. I won’t get in to all of the things I don’t eat for weird reasons today :)

This recipe is going to be my new swim breakfast meat recipe. For one thing it can easily, and quite affordably, be multiplied to feed a crowd. For another, it is a healthy alternative to greasy preformed sausage rounds. With the addition of shredded apple and brown rice, this is a filling way to start the day. Don’t like or eat rice? Add another one of your favorite cooked grains. This would be great with barley or quinoa.

This Homestyle Country Sausage recipe came from the new Gooseberry Patch cookbook:Good-For-You Everyday Meals Cookbook (Everyday Cookbook Collection) and I have been cooking up a storm this week! Did you see my post earlier for Spaghetti Soup?
