Bacon Breakfast Sausage with Apple Balsamic Glaze


2015/05/06 by nikkiledford

You’re at your favorite breakfast spot, ordering your usual breakfast plate and the server asks you that ubiquitous breakfast question, “Bacon or sausage?”. Was there ever a more difficult decision? I mean, bacon is delicious. We all know that. But breakfast sausage is pretty enticing as well. I say don’t choose, just have both!

I love that whole foods has been carrying their 365 breakfasty sausage in bulk. That  way, you can mashup your own fixins into the meat before cooking!

If you’re feeling particularly inspired, don’t skip out on making the glaze. It will change your life… or maybe just your morning.

Stopped by @lazyacresmarket_encinitas and grabbed this tonic to keep my immune system solid while my little guy fights a cold. I'm not gonna lie, it doesn't taste that good, but has some crazy good ingredients and so far I'm keeping all the germs from taking me down 👊🏻 Not upset about my breakfast situation.
GF sourdough open faced breakfast sandwich and bone broth with all the immune boosting goodies. #goodonya #northcountysd #needonedowntown PREPARATION// One thing I never regret;
Taking time to meal prep for myself. It's so much easier to make healthy food choices and lose the stress over time spent in the kitchen when you're prepared! #mealpreppin #gingerorangepork #slowcookerftw If you didn't catch my live video yesterday about my grocery shopping (riveting... I know.), I gave the low down on why and how I make my own nut butter.
1. It's generally cheaper.
2. It tastes way better.
3. Easy to do in a vitamix or food processor. Just have patience because you're not making a smoothie, you're grinding nuts until they release their oils and smooth out.
Need another reason to make your own? 
4. Customization
This batch had a touch of vanilla and cinnamon and I can easily control the amount of saltiness.
You guyyyyysssss. It's so good and easy. Be like Nike and #justdoit
