Everyone who is trying to eat healthy knows that store bought sausage is terrible for you, filled with all kinds of preservatives and such, not to mention the fats and cholesterol in them. I have a recipe I use for making Breakfast Sausage Seasoning. It can be used in whatever ground meat you prefer. I use mine in Lean ground turkey, I have tried lean ground beef and it is good too, but I am switching to grass fed beef and have not used it in that yet, mostly because of cost. But ground turkey is pretty reasonable and good for you as well. When you make this and cook it, you can then freeze the sausage and just take it out and cook it as you would frozen from the store. You can shape it into patties (any size you want) or links, or crumbles. I do all three and then add crumbles to scrambled eggs, or on top of homemade pizza, or how ever you please. Here is the recipe:
1 teaspoon dried sage
1 teaspoon sea salt
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
1/8 teaspoon dried marjoram
1-1/2 teaspoons organic sugar
1/8 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
1/2 pinch ground cloves
1 pound ground turkey or chicken or beef
Just mix everything together and then decide whether you want to make it into patties, or
small rolls or meatballs, or crumbles. You can use it for anything you would use sausage for.
Cook and then use or refreeze for later.
