Blueberry Sausage Breakfast Bake

I like to serve a nice breakfast bake when we have guest here at the cottage, it can be made ahead and this gives me more time with our guest. Blueberry Sausage Breakfast Bake is a very flavorful dish with a nice creamy inside and the burst of fresh blueberries in every bite. This is a very versatile dish that can have different ingredients added or taken away to create a whole new dish. Sure hope you will enjoy this new breakfast or brunch dish.

I like to use fresh ingredients for all my recipes.
These Blueberries came from our local Farmers Market.
The berries are grown in orchards not to far from our location.

Recipe Tip:
I split the recipe for this post and baked two small dishes.  We enjoyed one and  the other was put in the freezer, for a nice busy day or (lazy morning).
Vegetable's can be substituted for the berries or other fruit. The recipe can also be made without the meat.

Enjoy!
