So satisfying that you won’t be hungry for hours!  Maybe this is the ultimate in comfort food for breakfast!  I think it's perhaps a very American thing, because I only became familiar with it when visiting with American friends in Great Falls, Montana.  My DH gave it a thumbs up and said it was very tasty...and he ate it all and wasn't hungry for a long time.  The white sauce is very tasty and is different to the white flour thickened white sauce one normally finds with this type of recipe, which would make the meal far too carby for most of us.  This white sauce also forms the base of my cheese sauce for my Veggie Au Gratin Casserole.

3 bratwurst sausages (8 oz), OR (250 g)
  sausages of choice
2 tbsp olive oil (30 mL)
4 oz spreadable cream cheese (125 g)
3 tbsp butter (45 mL)
1/3 cup Low-Carb Milk, page___ (75 mL)
1/4 tsp black pepper, OR to taste (1 mL)
Remove casings from sausages.  Place in food processor and pulse until sausage is crumbled.  In nonstick frying pan, cook sausage over medium heat in olive oil until browned and fully cooked. 

In nonstick frying pan, combine cream cheese, butter, Low-Carb Milk and black pepper.  Stir until the sauce thickens.  Stir sauce into cooked sausage crumbles and heat gently until well combined and heated through.  Serve over split Mozzarella Cheese Biscuits.  I popped them in the toaster first, but I think it is more authentic not to toast the biscuits?
