Breakfast Sausage

This is the recipe for breakfast sausage. This recipe is pretty savory, but you can tone it down to your taste. You can use store-bought ground pork or grind your own using the directions HERE. The recipe can be adjusted for larger batches. We made about 15 pounds!

This sausage makes delicious biscuits & gravy, omelets or egg scrambles…

2 pounds ground pork

2 teaspoons salt

1 1/2 teaspoons black pepper

2 teaspoons chopped fresh sage

1/2 teaspoon chopped fresh rosemary

2 teaspoons chopped fresh thyme (we used 1/2 teaspoon dry)

1 Tablespoon brown sugar

1/2 teaspoon nutmeg

1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper

1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes

Mix seasonings in a small bowl. Add to ground pork and mix well until fully incorporated.

Chill immediately. Cook a small bit to check taste. Add more spices or more meat according to your taste. Know that they flavor will alter some after a few days.

Use within a day or two or freeze for longer storage.
