Homemade Breakfast Sausage

LeGourmetTV's picture
In links or as patties I love this with a big Sunday breakfast with waffles or eggs! This recipe is a starting point and fairly neutral in flavour, start here and then tailor your next batch and keep experimenting.
  Lean pork butt 2 1⁄2 Pound
  Clove 1 Pinch, ground
  Dried marjoram 1⁄4 Teaspoon
  Dried thyme 1⁄2 Teaspoon
  Brown sugar 3⁄4 Teaspoon
  Black peppercorn 3⁄4 Teaspoon, ground
  Dried sage 1 1⁄2 Teaspoon
  Coarse salt 1 Teaspoon
  Pork fat 1⁄2 Pound
  Red pepper 1 Pinch, crushed

1) Prepare the sausage casing.
2) Cut meat and fat into cubes and keep well chilled before grinding (30 minutes in the freezer is great).

3) Grind meat and fat through the fine disk on your grinder.
4) Mix all ingredients into ground meat, and then chill again before next step (freezer for 20 minutes)
5) Grind mixture through fine disk again.
6) Shape into patties or stuff into casings. Prick air pockets and twist casings into links.
7) Cover and place in fridge overnight to give flavour a chance to build.
8) Can be kept in fridge for 2-3 days or frozen for up to 3 months.
9) Fry until internal temp reaches 160ºF.

10) Serve the sausages for Sunday breakfast with waffles or eggs or as desired.
