Blueberry-Sausage Breakfast Cake w/ Blueberry Sauce

I couldn't just leave you with one recipe for this book review....
There are so many delicious dishes to choose from!

Breakfast is always a weekend thing around here. 
We all get up at different times and get out the door as quick and we can, 
so cooking breakfast is almost impossible. By the time the last person ate, 
it would be cold. It's just easier to cook up a quick bowl of oatmeal or cold cereal. 
So, when the weekend comes around...breakfast is my favorite meal to cook!

This Blueberry-Sausage Cake was a big hit.

A little bit of zip from the sausage to add to the sweetness of the blueberries. 
Perfect combination!

Before I give you the recipe,
