Most store-bought, prepared breakfast sausage is loaded with preservatives, flavor enhancers, and sodium. If you can find it, prepared sausage made with organic, pasture-raised meat and all-natural ingredients is often expensive. This recipe starts with ground pork and chicken. You can adjust the ratio depending on your taste, or use all pork or all chicken, or even ground turkey. Patties reheat very well so it is easier to cook the sausage all at once, freeze, and reheat when you need them.
This recipe takes about 10 minutes to prepare. So easy, you’ll wonder why you ever bought ready-made sausage products!
- 1 lb Ground Pork, organic, pasture raised
- 1 lb Ground Chicken, organic, free range
- 1/2 t Garlic
- 1/3 t Sage
- 1/2 t Salt
- 1/3 t Ground Black Pepper
- 1/4 t Italian Seasoning
- 1/4 t Thyme
- 1/4 t ground onion
The meat should be well chilled to improve mixing. Place the pork and chicken in large bowl. Add the seasonings. Mix by hand until the pork and chicken and seasonings are well blended. Form into patties and fry until lightly browned on both sides, about 2 minutes a side.
Yield about 8 patties per pound of meat.
