Wake up on the right side of the bed with homemade smokin’ sausage. This grilled blueberry breakfast sausage will bring a sweet and savory addition to the most important meal of the day.
2 TBSP OLIVE OIL
1/2 cup FINELY CHOPPED YELLOW ONION
2 LB GROUND DARK MEAT TURKEY, PORK, OR COMBINATION
1/2 CUP DRIED BLUEBERRIES OR DRIED CRANBERRIES
2 TSP FENNEL SEED
2 TSP CHOPPED ROSEMARY
1 EGG, LIGHTLY BEATEN
1 tsp GRATED LEMON ZEST
1/2 tsp FRESHLY GROUND BLACK PEPPER
Warm the olive oil in a medium fry pan over medium-high heat. Add the chopped onion and a pinch of salt. Cook stirring constantly until onions are translucent, about 5-7 minutes. Remove from the heat and cool.
In a large mixing bowl combine the rest of the ingredients. Add the onions.
With clean hands, combine the ingredients until evenly mixed. Refrigerate mixture for 30 minutes or up to 24 hours.
When ready to cook, set the temperature to 325℉ and preheat, lid closed for 15 minutes.
Remove the sausage from the refrigerator and shape the meat mixture into 18 patties.
Place on the grill and cook until the internal temperature reaches 165-175℉, about 2-3 minutes per side. Enjoy!
