Did you all have a great Christmas? Mine was so nice and relaxing. My mom and I are on our Pacific Coast Highway road trip from SF to LA, and we are currently in the mountains of Malibu for 3 nights. It’s in a secluded cabin with amazing views, no cell service (thank god for wifi!), and fresh mountain air. It’s so nice to unwind and do nothing for a while.
If you don’t follow me on Instagram and Facebook, I mentioned in one of my posts that I’m putting my mom on the autoimmune protocol (AIP) during this whole trip. She has had rheumatoid arthritis for several years now and she still suffers from it. However, she’s never tried the AIP diet, which has worked so well for so many people with autoimmune diseases. So, this whole trip, I’ve been prepping and cooking up AIP meals and snacks. It’s been challenging at times, but still so fun to travel with my mom.
If you’ve signed up for my newsletter, you already received this recipe in your inbox a few days ago! These breakfast pork sausage is the first AIP recipe that I created, and I’m so excited that it turned out so so tasty. I made a triple batch before leaving on this trip and it’s been a lifesaver in the mornings when I don’t feel like spending too much time in the kitchen. I would just fry up these sausage and sauté some veggies and call it breakfast!
The texture is the best part about these breakfast pork sausage. Crispy on the outside, and soft on the inside. I honestly didn’t miss the nightshade vegetables and cracked black pepper in these, which is what I would normally add to a breakfast sausage.
If you are looking for an egg-free breakfast or you are on your own AIP journey, I highly recommend this breakfast pork sausage. It’s seriously so yummy and filling!
