The day after Thanksgiving I woke up thinking about the amazing sage and sausage dressing Hubby made for dinner the previous afternoon and wanted some for breakfast. So, how do you make it breakfast. You put an egg on it, right! And since it’s leftover Thanksgiving dinner, you put some leftover cranberry sauce on top of the egg. It was delicious!
Hubby always makes enough food for dinner, leftovers for us and our guests and then some. Thank goodness, because his dressing was extra special this year. He used plenty of sage, ground chicken breakfast sausage, onions, celery, bread cubes, butter and lots of broth. What’s not to love! It tastes even better the next day and along with the egg it makes a quick tasty breakfast. Just top it off with a little cranberry sauce to add some fruit to this balanced Easy Real Food Recipe.
THE PERFECT LEFTOVER INGREDIENTS
To begin, divide the sage dressing into four 1/4 cup servings and form into patties. Now add a little butter to a non-stick pan and heat to medium heat. Gently place the patties, one at a time, in the heated pan and brown on both sides, then place each on a plate.
Next, cook the eggs to your liking, over easy, over medium or over hard. Place a fried egg on top of each sage dressing patty and sprinkle with a little fresh cracked black pepper. Then top with two tablespoons of whole cranberry sauce, serve and enjoy!
Eggs are highly nutritious, with high quality protein that contains all the essential amino acids. They are filling and satisfying and some say eggs are nature’s perfect food, they contain some of almost every nutrient you need. Eggs contain B vitamins, including choline, an important nutrient, as well as phosphorus, selenium and the antioxidants lutein and zeaxanthin. They’re affordable, easy to prepare in a variety of ways and I love them!
