This is my sausage recipe for making breakfast sausage patties at home and saving a ton of $$! The two pictures above are the way I package them for freezing. I make about 4 large hamburger sized patties for burgers or spaghetti sauce. I package the breakfast patties 4 to a plastic bag.
2 to 3 lbs Ground Turkey, hamburger, or pork
1 tsp. Ground Ginger
3 tsp Dried Sage crumbled or powdered
1/2 tsp Cayenne Pepper
1 tsp Black Pepper
2 tbs Maple Syrup (optional)
1 tsp Ground Fennel or Whole Fennel Seeds
We have added these extra ingredients because we like these spices
1 or 2 tbs Italian spice
1 tps Paprika
1 tbs Garlic Powder
The recipe I use calls for salt, but we both are on a low salt diet. Your choice.
I mix all the spices together in a small bowl, put the burger in a large bowl, and sprinkle small amounts of the mixed spices on and mix. I use my hands, you can wear gloves, we all should have them now. I keep mixing the spices in with my hands until all spice is used and mixed thoroughly.
I make them into small patties, heat a frying pan with olive oil and brown them on both sides. Set the patties aside until cool and wrap in plastic wrap or use sandwich packages for storage. I freeze them and take them out the day before I need to cook them.
I keep a package in the fridge for a quick protein snack.
