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.
- 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.
