Blueberry-Sausage Strata

Blueberry season is almost here-Yay!!
I love, love blueberries and I'm really hoping to get out and pick some to freeze and some for yummy desserts and of course for this strata!
So with that being said here is an awesome and healthy recipe to use 'em up:)
This is another recipe from the Weight Watchers Magazine.
A little forewarning-this is an overnighter;)
Recipe Rundown:

sweet Italian turkey or chicken sausage
fresh thyme
whole wheat crusty bread
egg substitute-or egg whites
kosher salt
black pepper

Cook the sausage and leeks together.
I had to leave my leeks big enough to take out-don't want the kids freaking out!

I used frozen they worked great!

Cut the bread into chunks.

add some of the berries to the sausage

Place half of the bread in the baking dish and top with sausage mixture, then eggs and top with remaining bread, pressing into egg mixture to moisten.
Cover and refrigerate over night or at least 8 hours.
Preheat oven to 325 degrees and bake for 60 to 65 minutes.

Serve with remaining blueberries and a drizzle of syrup.


  1. WOW! I know for sure I would earn some big "points" if i fixed this for my husband!

  2. mmm, i love the combo of sweet and savory.

  3. This combination is totally new to me! This dish looks really yummy with lots of anti-oxidants from the berries.
