I love sausage, almost as much as I love bacon, and that’s saying something!
Have you looked at the labels on breakfast sausage lately? It’s almost impossible to find sausage without MSG or corn syrup; or an array of other ingredients you can’t pronounce (maybe it’s just me that can’t pronounce them, but either way, I don’t want to eat them). So I did a little research and then started experimenting with spices. I now have a nice blend that works great to make breakfast sausage patties or crumble up in your favorite breakfast dish. (we love sausage gravy and biscuits)
Then mix the blend into 2 pounds of ground pork.
These sausage patties were wonderful on my homemade whole wheat biscuits.
When I started making my own seasoning and spice mixes, and cooking everything from scratch I started going through spices like crazy! When it was time to restock my spice cabinet I wanted fresh organic herbs and spices, not something that had been on a shelf since the Clinton administration. After some research I chose to go with Mountain Rose Herbs. I’m so glad I did!! This is a great company with a cool web site and AMAZING products. Go ahead and check it out, you will not be disappointed!
- 11/2 teaspoons rubbed sage
- ½ teaspoon thyme
- 1 teaspoon ground pepper
- 11/2 teaspoon sea salt
- 11/2 teaspoon parsley flakes
- ¼ teaspoon red pepper flakes
- ¼ teaspoon ground nutmeg
- Stir the spices together and mix into 2 pounds of ground pork. You can cook it right away but it tastes better if you refrigerate it for 3 to 24 hours to let the flavors blend together.
Here are some of my other homemade spice and seasoning mixes you might like:
