Overnight Blueberry Sausage Breakfast Cake

While sorting through my recipe file; I came across this recipe that I received from a dear friend years ago.  I was once a member of a neighborhood quilting group that would get together frequently and work on combined quilting projects.  It was at one of these meetings that one of the members brought this breakfast cake.  One of the reasons we all requested this recipe is that you make it the night before, refrigerate overnight and bake in the morning.  With the holidays approaching, I thought this would be the perfect recipe for all busy cooks.  I have even made this one step easier, I used precooked turkey sausage crumbles that you can buy in the grocery next to the breakfast sausages.  I like using turkey sausage since it is leaner and precooked makes it even easier to use and a time reducer.  Having overnight guests?  This is the perfect make ahead breakfast treat.

  6. 1/2 teaspoon lemon juice
  7. In a medium saucepan, combine sugar, cornstarch, water and blueberries. Cook over medium heat until thickened and bubbly. Stir constantly. Cook and stir two more minutes.
