Homemade Country Breakfast Sausage Sun, 09/21/03 9:12 PM (permalink)
Hubby and I enjoy large lavish breakfasts on the weekend, and they invariably include sausage. We generally buy the Jimmy Dean with extra sage brand, but have been talking about how we'd like to try making our own. I looked up some recipes on the web, but am more confused than enlightened by what I have found thus far. Some call for things like cloves and nutmeg, still others insist on thyme or rosemary, etc, etc. Do any of you ever make your own breakfast sausage, and do you have a good recipe you'd be willing to share? Nothing fancy, just something that would taste like what Grandma made when they killed a hog every year, lol. Thanks.

    SKYLARONE: Here's a recipe for "HOMEMADE SAUSAGE, COUNTRY STYLE".

    2 lbs. coarsely ground fresh lean pork
    1/2 tsp dried thyme or sage
    Dash of cayenne pepper
    3/4 tsp freshly ground black pepper
    1 tsp salt

    Combine all of the above ingredients, mixing well with your hands. Divide in half and shape into two rolls. Wrap each roll in foil. Keeps several weeks in the fridge.

    To fry sausages: Cut off 3/4 inch thick slices. Place in cold skillet and fry over low heat. Make sure the sausage is well-browned on both sides and fully cooked through. Serve with homemade applesauce.

    (This is a very old recipe. Good luck.)

      CORRECTION: Recipe should read 1/2 TABLESPOON of dried thyme or sage. Sorry!
