Savory Beef and Pork Sausage

A homemade sausage recipe adds a special, homey touch to your brunch menu. Easy, inexpensive, and delicious. In addition, or perhaps in subtraction, homemade sausage contains...

  • no fillers
  • no added fat
  • no preservatives
  • no mystery odds and ends

And when you make country style sausage (patties), you don't have to think about the fact that your sausage casings are probably hog intestines. What's not to love? 

Savory Sausage

Serving a variety of guests? Make some hot, some mild by omitting the cayenne or red pepper.

1-1/2 pounds ground pork
1-1/2 pounds ground beef

Sausage seasoning mix:

2-1/2 teaspoons sage
2 teaspoons salt
2 teaspoons pepper
1 teaspoon savory
1/2 teaspoon marjoram
1/4 teaspoon each: allspice, nutmeg, dry mustard
1/4 teaspoon (or to taste) cayenne or crushed red pepper (optional)

Mix all ingredients well in a large bowl. Cover tightly and refrigerate for at least 12 hours.

    The mixture may be frozen at this point. It freezes well for up to 2 months.

Form the sausage mixture into patties, about 2 ounces each.

Fry the patties over medium/medium-high heat (in a little butter, if necessary) until browned and just cooked through, about 3 minutes each side.

Makes about 24 2-ounce sausage patties.

Put your new homemade sausage recipe to good use:

Sausage Breakfast Sandwiches

Use biscuits, crumpets, toasted English muffins, dinner rolls, or slider buns for the sandwiches. Form the patties to fit the size of the bread; same amount but formed thinner for English muffins, for example, which are larger. Fill with 1 sausage patty, 1 egg cooked in an egg ring, and 1 slice of cheese. Keep warm.

Sausage Meatballs

Work 1 cup grated Parmesan cheese, 1 cup panko bread crumbs, 4 cloves minced garlic, and 3 beaten eggs into the sausage mixture. Roll into 1 1/2 to 2-inch meatballs and fry in a little olive oil, turning, until browned on all sides and cooked through. Serve over pasta with marinara sauce, if you like. Makes 36 to 48 meatballs.
