As you all know, I am a HUGE Wright Brand Bacon fan. I don't think fan is strong enough to describe my love of Wright Brand. You can imagine how excited I was to find out that they now offer Sausage! As soon as I found out, ideas started popping in my head left and right on how to incorporate it into our breakfast routine. I knew I wanted to take it beyond just a side to waffles or pancakes.
Growing up, it was rare we had sausage gravy, we usually just had plain cream gravy made with bacon grease. Because of this, it took me a while to warm up to sausage gravy. Once I started making my own gravy, I preferred making it with sausage. Why? Well, because it helped hide the lumps. Yep. What good southern girl doesn't know how to make gravy? What good southern girl has two thumbs pointing to herself? This girl! I have gotten MUCH better over the years, but I still have room for improvement.
I am a slightly picky eater and if we have biscuits and gravy and eggs, I usually only eat one or the other. Why? I don't like my food touching. Man, you guys are learning so much about me today! HA! I thought putting the biscuits and gravy in these cute shooter glasses would be great to help with my food can't touch issues I have. It worked great and the girls thought it was really fun.
Next, I made these cute little Mini Sliders. I did cheat on the pancakes and bought frozen, pre-made. Some days you just can't do one more thing and that's ok! You can't see that I made the sausage into hearts, but I did. I am going to make these again for Valentine's day morning using homemade pancakes also made into hearts. The girls gobbled these up and thought they were super fun also.
My FAVORITE easy breakfast idea is to make Mini Breakfast Pizza. These can be frozen and re-heated for those mornings you are crunched for time. Just pop them into the oven for about 5-8 minutes, or the microwave for 1-2 minutes.

1 Wright Brand Sausage Link

Slice English Muffin in half and spread Butter over each half. Toast in oven for 5 mintues.

Remove English Muffin from oven and set aside.
Scramble Egg with Salt and Pepper*
Divide Scrambled Egg between the English Muffin halves, top with sliced Sausage Link and sprinkle with Shredded Cheese.
Bake 5-8 minutes, or until cheese has melted.
*To quickly scramble egg, whisk egg with salt and pepper and pour into microwave safe bowl. Microwave 2-3 minutes.
