Homemade Breakfast Sausage

I remember my mom always complaining about the homemade sausage my auntie sent up from South Hill, Va. and it didn't have enough sage. I would just laugh, because I had no clue what sage was but, I did know the sausage didn't have enough of it according to my mom standards. For my Aunt Gracie it was just right. So I decided to call my cousin Ken to find out exactly what was in the sausage since he use to help prepare the sausage with my uncle back in the day. We went back and forth about what we thought it was because he didn't remember either. So I had to come up with what I thought was in the sausage from memory and I read a few other recipes. I made sure it has enough sage and crush red pepper flakes. This is my recipe I think it turned out pretty good.

Most sausage is made from pork, but you can make sausage out of beef, lamb, turkey, almost any animal. Basically sausages are made by grinding your choice of protein, mixing it with salt and great herb seasonings to brighten the flavor of the protein.

Quick Tip

The best way to stay ahead of the game and be prepared for that next sausage dish would be to batch your sausage patties and freeze them in an airtight container or freezer bag. Sausage patties can be stored in the freezer up to 2 months.

Ingredients Homemade Breakfast Sausage

1 lb. Pork sausage

2 Tbsp Sage

1 tsp thyme

2 tsp Kosher salt

1 tsp black pepper

1 tsp paprika

1 tsp red pepper flakes

1 tsp garlic powder

2 garlic cloves mince

1 Tbsp brown sugar (optional)

Let's Cook!

  • In a mixing bowl add the pork along with the kosher salt, thyme, red pepper flakes, garlic powder, paprika, sage, black pepper, and mince garlic.

  • Blend all the spices and herbs well. Form your sausage patties. For easy preparations. Batch the sausage patties using an airtight freezer bag.

  • Allow the sausage to marinate with the seasoning5-6 hours or over night in the refrigerator before cooking.

  • Freeze the remaining sausage patties and cook what's needed for your meal. Sausage, egg and cheese biscuit sounds delicious.

Bon Appetit, ENJOY!
