“This reminds me of the sausage my Dad made with venison. I didn't like eating "Bambi", but I loved his sausage. While I am not normally a breakfast eater, I have seen some rather luscious pancake and French toast recipes posted. Add some maple syrup and I'll join you for brunch! The recipe is from Bon Appetit 1989. Prep time includes refrigeration.”
