Changing Up Breakfast This Week And Trying Something New

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

spicy blueberry sausagesI found a great cookbook and was reading through it yesterday morning as I relaxed for a bit. It’s called Paleo Comfort Foods and it’s full of yummy, paleo friendly recipes! I’ve been eating my chocolate, almond butter eggs for a few weeks now for breakfast and I decided to try something new.

I found a recipe for breakfast sausage that sounded good so I modified it a little bit and came up with something great. I’m having two of them for breakfast this morning when I get to work. The spicy/sweet combination in this sausage is quite the tasty morsel. I also love blueberries and would eat them any chance I got so I jumped at the chance to include them.

These would go well on the side of the paleo pancakes that I made this weekend. Imagine blueberries, chocolate, coconut and coffee all rolled into one breakfast! These sausages couldn’t be easier to make too. I may never get store bought again.

Spicy Blueberry Sausages

  • 1 lb ground pork
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp pepper
  • 1/2 tsp sage
  • 1/4 tsp nutmeg
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp crushed red pepper (or to taste)
  • 1/2 cup frozen blueberries

Mix all of the ingredients together and shape into sausage shaped patties. Heat a pan over medium heat and cook the patties until done. Flip a few times so that they brown evenly. Makes about 8 sausages.

brussels sproutsAfter I made the sausages last night, I had another stroke of brilliance. I sautéed my brussels sprouts in the leftover sausage drippings to add flavor to them. They were delish with dinner and I have tons leftover for tonight.

I had a groupon for Whole Foods that I got to use yesterday. I stocked up on all kinds of veggies for this week. I need to do some reading to figure out what to make with some of them. In particular, the tomatillos I purchased on a whim. I read somewhere to try one new fruit or veggie each week so I went with it. 😉

If you have any tomatillo ideas, let me know. I have a chili recipe that calls for them, but not sure I want to use them for that purpose. Maybe in a salsa or grilled to top my chicken.

If you like my recipes and know someone who would also enjoy, feel free to share away. Happy Monday!



  1. Those look good – I’m a sucker for sausage. (I just realized that sounded better in my head.) Anyway, what are those chocolate almond butter eggs you speak of??

  2. Accidental Fitness Quest says:

    I’ve been mixing 3 eggs with 1 tbsp of unsweetened cocoa and cooking them that way. Like scrambled eggs. Then I top it with a tbsp of almond butter and some cinnamon. It’s quite tasty. I also do a low fat version sometimes with egg beaters or just whites and a mashed banana.

    Those sausages were really good BTW. I want to try with applesauce and ground chicken/turkey. Thanks for stopping by!

  3. Thanks for sharing the Chocolate Souffle recipe! I’m actually making a shopping list right now and adding your ingredients for those blueberry sausages. So glad I came across your blog!

      I’m glad you like it and let me know what you think of the sausages. I’ve been reading your blog this afternoon and LOVE it! I’m dying to give crossfit a try and found a gym near me. I need to start with their fundamentals class. I just need to work out my schedule and how to fit it in with my lifting.
