Homemade Breakfast Sausage

 I found this recipe several years ago and clipped it for a rainy day. Strange, it took several years for me to finally decide to give it a try. I'm glad I saw the price hike on sausage yesterday while we were in Miles City. The two pound package of sausage we usually buy, went from $4.99 to $6.99. Two dollars? Walmart has finally graduated with a degree in Highway Robbery! Sausage wasn't the only thing they hiked the prices up on; Wheat Montana bread, which I normally buy went from $1.50 to $2.98 a loaf in over 2 months.

Homemade Breakfast Sausage

I was quite surprised at the amount of grease that was in my pan when I fried up some sample pieces. There was none to be found! I had to add a drizzle just to keep the patties from sticking to the pan. Even after the sausage sitting over night in the refrigerator, there was no grease again this morning. I can't help but think about the 1/4 cup of grease I was pouring off the store bought sausage... Sad! 
The recipe is for two pounds and since I had never made it, I only made half; just in case we didn't like it. Dumb I know! I really should have made the whole  batch. 

Easy, Easy, don't even think about mixing the seasoning and pork with your hands. ~ Use your mixer!



2 teaspoons dried sage
1/4 teaspoon dried marjoram
1/4 teaspoon dried rosemary
2 teaspoons salt
1 teaspoon ground black pepper
1 tablespoon brown sugar
1/8 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
2 pounds ground pork


In a small, bowl, combine the sage,  marjoram, rosemary, salt and black pepper, brown sugar, and crushed red pepper. Mix well.

In a mix bowl, place the pork and sprinkle in the mixed spices while the mixer is running. Scrap down sides of bowl and stir to make sure all the spices are mixed in well.

Store in a covered container for up to a week in the refrigerator.



  1. There are three 2 pound bags of ground pork in our freezers. This recipe sounds perfect.
    The pork was a gift from my stepson, he raised and butchered them himself.

  2. I will Never buy prepackaged sausage again thanks for the recipe

  3. I'm going to give this a go!! Looks so easy and delicious~
