Whole30 Breakfast Sausage
I’ve just recently completed my first Whole30! Some days were a breeze and some days were really hard. I found that planning ahead was truly what made the “easy” days a breeze.
Having a supply of food already made up made it easy at busy meal times, especially breakfast. I’m usually a quick-breakfast eater, along with the rest of my family.
Grab-and-go is pretty much our motto around here especially since our week-day mornings start out as if we’re shot out of cannons (which is why I make so many quick breads and muffins). Wake up and hit the ground running. I’m sure many of you are familiar with that.
When I had a few extra minutes to spare in the morning, I would heat up some of this Whole30 breakfast sausage and usually ate it with a hard boiled egg (prepared every Sunday) and some fruit. It made a relatively quick breakfast that I could eat while working on some recipes for this little ol’ blog o’mine.
On the weekends when we could ease our way into the day, I would eat this Whole30 breakfast sausage in omelets or with fried eggs. My favorite was to eat it with eggs, avocado, and salsa – such a great combo!
It will quickly become a staple in your house especially since it’s easy to make a big batch and freeze the leftovers.
I received 2 pounds of ground pork in my April ButcherBox and you better believe all 2 pounds of it went into making more of this sausage. (Remember when I made Grain Free Pork Milanese with my March box? So good!)
April’s box, also came with grass-fed hanger steaks (which I’m super excited about!), a grass-fed chuck roast, and some grass-fed ground beef along with the ground pork. So far, I’ve made Whole30 tacos, Paleo/Whole30 meatballs, and hamburgers with the ground beef and I’ve made a bang-a-rang Whole30 Pot Roast with the chuck roast.
So many delicious bites! ButcherBox is by far one of my favorite services. I hope you get the chance to check the out too! Enjoy!
