Turkey Cranberry Breakfast Sausage

Cranberry Turkey Breakfast Sausage

Possibly the hardest meal of the day for my clients with autoimmune issues is breakfast. Often we need to remove eggs from the diet for a short period of time for some and some it’s a little longer. The biggest complaint I get is what to eat for breakfast when grains, a smoothie and eggs are not options. Making your own breakfast sausage only takes minutes and you know what you’re eating.

I used naturally sweetened cranberries found at a health food store. The ones I used for this recipe are sweetened with maple syrup. Look for spice blends at health food stores that don’t contain vegetables oil, additives or MSG.
