#CranberryWeek continues today with my offering for cranberry-sage breakfast sausage, which I thought might be an interesting addition to any holiday breakfast or brunch table. It is quite simple to make and much healthier than commercial sausage preparations which have additional fat added. So in its lean nature it does tend to cook more quickly- don’t overdo it or it will dry out. However, if you want a regular type sausage, you could add ground pork fat, or if that is difficult for you to find, you can also grind up some bacon in the food processor or meat grinder (some butchers also sell this outright).

Tomorrow I will post again in #CranberryWeek with my recipe for cranberry borscht, so make sure you drop back by to see that recipe, as well as those from other bloggers, including the ones below.

I hope you are having a blessed Thanksgiving week! Sorry to keep this so short, but holiday weeks are busy, as you probably know. Until next time-

~Sue
