Breakfast Sausage

After I had successfully made Italian Sausage, I did want to try a batch of breakfast sausage, and I ‘d never made them before.  Not fond of any of the commercial brands.

Did a search on FoodBlogSearch (, and the first homemade, non-paid SEO that came up was Homesick Texan.  Having just tried the Banana, Bacon and Pecan pancakes, I immediately went for the breakfast sausage.


2 lbs ground pork
2 Tbs fresh finely chopped sage leaves
2 tsp kosher salt
1 tsp fresh ground black pepper
1 tsp red pepper flakes
3 Tbs brown sugar

Same process as the Italian Sausage (or buy ground pork), grind the spices, and use the paddle attachment of the stand mixer to mix them into the meat.  Form 3 inch patties and freeze on a tray until solid, then store in a plastic bag until ready to use.  Gently fry these in a little bit of butter for breakfast with Buttermilk Pancakes and scrambled eggs.

Put them together, and all I need is a mimosa.

Use the leftover Sweet and Hot in an omelette or a frittata.
