A few weeks ago, I had a few friends over for brunch on a beautiful Saturday morning; we had an amazing time with our friends and their beautiful daughter but the most important thing was the food and I will toot my own horn and say the food was dang good! My friends love spicy food so I decided to move away from the typical sweet breakfast menu and offer something savoury! It was a total HIT!! I made my savoury pancakes with some sausage and peppers. We also had bacon, parfaits, fruits and a signature drink! It was a good time well spent before I had to run off to work.

Today I would be sharing the recipe for the sausage and peppers. I found this recipe through one of the amazing food bloggers I follow; MsAngelaDavis. It is so simple and the best part is it can be made for dinner as well. You can eat it over rice or mashed potatoes. This recipe has become a staple in my house and I am are it would come in handy for when the babies start showing up because it is so simple and gets ready very quickly.  Here is the recipe. Let me know how you like it.
