Homemade Italian Sausage Seasoning

Italian Sausage SeasoningHere’s another sausage recipe!  If you couldn’t tell we are huge pork fans.  In the past my parents have raised a pig for us every year and we always had an abundance of home grown pork on hand.  Last year they moved and have not been able to get set up to house a few hogs yet, so sadly we are down to our last few packages of pork chops.  🙁  There is NOTHING like home grown pork….and we are missing it a lot!  I figured if I have to buy sausage I could at least season it myself and my homemade seasoning for breakfast sausage turned out so yummy I thought I would try Italian sausage seasoning.  So far I have used this Italian Sausage on pizza and in spaghetti  and it was wonderful!  I’m sure it would work for any recipe calling for Italian sausage.

Blend the seasonings together and mix into 2 pounds of ground pork.  Refrigerate for 2 to 24 hours before cooking to let the flavors blend.

  5. Hi Just found your recipes for breakfast and Italian sausage. Have been on a make-it-yourself kick and needed those recipes. They both sound delicious and can’t wait to try them. Question, I am growing my own Sage. How would you prepare it for cooking? Thanks so much. Pat O’Gara, Jersey Girl

    1. Hi Pat, You can chop up the fresh sage leaves and substitute 1 tablespoon of the fresh for every teaspoon of dried sage, or you could dry the leaves yourself and then grind them up or make your own rubbed sage. Hope this answers your questions! Thanks for stopping by. 🙂

  6. Can’t wait to try this one. I’ve used your breakfast blend, it’s great. I didn’t have enough dried parsley so I also added some summer savory. I also grind an onion up with the pork.

  7. I LOVED this recipe. I used it to prepare my frozen pizza’s and some frozen meatballs while doing my monthly cooking. They turned out PERFECT. I saw it on Pinterest and I just want to say thank you! Up Next is the breakfast sausage.

  8. This recipe is perfect! The only change I make is using fresh grated garlic over powder (conversion: 1 clove=1/8t). After trying your breakfast sausage, ranch seasoning, and this, I can say that you definitely know your seasonings.

  9. I just wanted to say thank you for such wonderful recipes!! I really dislike processed foods and source all my meat from my parents farm. Great to find your sausage recipes and love your blog!!
