Breakfast sausage doesn't stand a chance competing against bacon. Sure, people like breakfast sausage; they'll eat it. But it hardly ever stirs the same frantic excitement as bacon often does. People aren't sticking breakfast sausage in cupcakes or trying to figure out the best way to wrap all their foods in this stuff. This is a serious oversight.
We aren't saying that people should start baking breakfast sausage into their cakes -- that would be too much. We just want people to understand that this breakfast meat is not the lesser of the two. It is just as good, just as hearty and just as satisfying. Plus, it also makes an awesome ingredient for breakfast recipes.
We've rounded up 15 breakfast sausage recipes so good you'll forget bacon ever existed.
