My love for blueberries is unbelievable; I simply LOVE blueberries. Of all the berries out there, blueberries are my favourite. My favourite colour is blue, so it only seems fitting that I love anything that is blue. I remember when I was in my early teens, I had the chance to go blueberry picking up north and boy I just wanted to eat those fresh berries as I picked them never mind gathering them. The next thing I also love is wonderful Canadian maple syrup. I love it plain and simple on waffles, pancakes and French toast.
So one Saturday morning when I received the newspaper with the grocery flyers in it I saw something that caught my eye. Maple Blueberry sausages which are a product of Sobey’s.
One of the things that I love about Sobey’s is that some of their products are different and unique from other grocery stores. These Maple Blueberry sausages are freshly made in the store. I know that because when I went back a second time to get more they were completely sold out. I talked to the butcher (a really nice man) who told me that I’d have to wait until he made some more. I found out when he would be making more and made sure that I arrived in time to get them before they sold out again!
Now, I’ve had all kinds of breakfast sausages before, and being the adventurous type when it comes to food; I am always up to the challenge of trying out different flavours and seasonings in them. With these Maple Blueberry sausages, you can really taste the blueberry in them with of course the maple syrup. I found the sausage not to be overly sweet which was great as I didn’t want dessert for my breakfast. I also could taste the pork which you should expect to taste in any good pork sausage.
I decided to make these sausages to go along with something that would compliment them; French toast, mixed berries and orange with just a little bit of pure maple syrup. I didn’t want to overkill the sweetness of this morning delight. My family tried the sausages and loved the taste combination of the blueberries with the maple syrup. These ingredients in the sausages made them the star of the show.
I called up my sister-in -law who loves to try new things and went back to Sobey’s to buy some more for her and her husband. After trying them, they told me I wasn’t wrong; they liked it too! Another thing they mentioned was that they noticed that there was not a lot of fat in the sausages which were great.
Breakfast is important on Sunday morning in our home and I feel very pleased to say, “Way to go Sobey’s you hit the ball out of the park! Keep doing what you did with this sausage. I can’t wait to see what new creations you will have behind that butchers counter. Thank you for making this home cook, food blogger and his family very hungry and eager for your next creation. You have definitely succeeded in satisfying Challenger’s Quest for the Best food.”
If you want to try this at home, head on over to Sobey’s while they still have these, and you can try my recipe for French Toast (minus the Orange Compote) to go with it.
