Homemade Breakfast Sausage
Updated: Mar 15, 2019
If you are anything like me, you probably can't have most of the sausages you find in your local butcher shop or supermarket because of the added additives. A small dose of MSG and it will sent me bedridden for the rest of the day with headaches and dizzy spells. Not a pretty site! And sitting at a breakfast table with a spread of juicy breakfast sausage that I can't touch is just down right wrong! So I started playing with recipes on sausages that is healthier and (if you know my cooking style by now) a recipe that does not require visits to several specialty store hunting for special types of seasonings. Quick and easy I always say. This the time I would encourage you to play with your food. Experiment with different spices and seasoning. Change the ratio of heat around until you settle with a family favorite. I promise you, you will be amazed at what a tiny harmless herb will do to a simple ground beef. I've added chopped apples, dried cranberries, nuts, just to name a few. This recipe however, is a favorite of ours. It's simple enough and delicious, and has made it to several of our lunch and dinner menu also.
We hope you will enjoy it too :)
For convenience sake, Obregon Cattle Ranch LLC do offer a breakfast sausage that is skinless and ready to use.
1 tsp dried sage
2 tsp salt
1 tsp ground black pepper (freshly ground please, you will notice the difference)
1/4 tsp dried marjoram
1 tbsp brown sugar
1/2 tsp crushed red pepper flakes
1 pinch ground cloves
2 pounds ground beef
Mix all the seasoning, dry ingredients well.
In a large bowl add ground beef to the mixed seasonings together.
You could shape these into patties and pan seared for breakfast.
Or I prefer to roll it up into a log, wrap a plastic food grade wrap around it. Placed it back into the refrigerator and allow all those flavors to marry overnight. The next morning slice it up for a delicious well seasoned breakfast sausage. You can grilled these babies and place it in between some toasted buns too. It will definitely make a tasty hamburger for lunch.
That is it! That is all it takes to turn your ground beef into a happening breakfast sausage!
