"Making your own breakfast sausage is easy and so much better than store bought; and it doesn't take hardly any time. Depending on what size you make your sausage, you can get anywhere from 8-12 patties. These also freeze very well. Just freeze individually on a sheet pan and then add to a large ziplock bag, separated by wax paper or parchment and use them as needed. One Note: I like to make this mix a few hours before I make the patties to develop all the flavors."

Step 1

Mix ... In a large bowl, add all the seasoning, maple syrup, brown sugar, onions and pimentos and mix well. Then add the pork and mix to combine all the ingredients. Honestly, I use my hands, it is so much easier. Cover with plastic wrap and let the mixture set to develop all the flavors. Anywhere from 2-4 hours.

Step 2

Patties ... Remove the mix from the refrigerator and form the patties - Any size you want. You can cook them immediately, or you can freeze them.

Step 3

Saute ... I prefer to use a non-stick saute pan, but use what you have on hand. Add 1-2 teaspoons of oil to the pan and bring to medium high heat. Saute the sausage on each side until golden brown - approximately 4-5 minutes per side depending on the side and thickness of the patties.

Step 4

Serve ... ENJOY with your favorites. Scrambled, poached or fried eggs; pancakes, or french toast.

Tips & Variations

No special items needed.



These tasted wonderful. I left out the pimento, because I didn't have any. I love making my own sausage, especially when it's as easy as this!
