I usually reserve these ones for special occasions.
Or at the very least, near holidays where cranberries are more appropriate!
But hey, why not live a little!!
It is terribly simple really and it was quite by accident that I ever made them. I think I found myself with some overly dry sausage one Christmas morning and wanted moisten them up a little and the idea made sense.
Fry up a batch of your favorite breakfast sausage and then when they are as good as done, give them a generous splash of cranberry juice, or even the “cranberry cocktail” type stuff. But I would advise against the jelly in a can type stuff.
Bring the liquid to a boil and just keep stirring everything around until the liquid is almost evaporated and you are left with a sticky, tasty goo on your sausages.
Okay, maybe “goo” isn’t the best word, but it is a little thicker than regular glaze.
Serve with your favorite breakfast food…….like French toast maybe.
But I realized as I wrote this that I see no real good reason to limit the idea to only breakfast sausage. In fact I think this might work really well on turkey sausage for instance!!
Because it is cranberry and a little bit tart, it has a really nice balance and isn’t too sweet so it can work with other sweet or savory items!
I don’t think you will be sorry.
