I am looking for a simple pork sausage - breakfast sausage patty recipe.

For store bought, I do like Jimmy Dean - Hot, Regular and Sage.
I would love to get the flavor profile close to one of ^^^these^^^

I usually make 2 to 5 pounds at a time if that makes any difference.

Thanks!

Ed

This is a bit of a spoof on Jimmy Dean original breakfast sausage. I've made tons of it and we love the stuff. It is great to make patties with and also for sausage gravy. If you like sage (which we do not) just add a little to this.

16 ounces ground pork
1 teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon Garlic powder
½ teaspoon dried parsley
½ teaspoon fresh coarse ground black pepper
½ teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
¼ teaspoon ground coriander
¼ teaspoon Accent
¼ teaspoon Oregano
¼ teaspoon onion powder

This is per pound so it's easy to calculate amounts per pound regardless of how many pounds you're making.

This is the recipie I use:

Pork - 1kg
Salt - 18g
Pepper - 2g
Sage - 2g
Nutmeg - 0.5g
Ginger - 0.5 g
Tyme - 1g
Cayenne - 0.5g

To JimmyDeanize this recipie, I'd add sugar (0.5g?), vinegar (15ml?), and MSG (1g?) Since those are listed on the ingredients list.

I use TSM hot breakfast sausage mix, you just need to use about 1/3 more than they call for, but we love the flavor.

Was wondering how this compares to AC Legg if you have had it? Does it have a good sage flavor?

I use the Hot pork sausage from TSM . It's our favorite . Has good heat and yes I think the sage is good . At least for us .
I recently used the breakfast sausage mix from Owens BBQ . It's a good sage sausage .

Brian , I wanted to link the one I buy . I think it's the same SmokinAl SmokinAl uses .
They have one called mild hot , but this is the one I get .
That's on TSM site , but if you have Prime try getting it from there . I buy all my stuff from TSM thru Prime .

I'm a Pop's fan for my sage sausage (patty and/or brown and serve links)

And TSM for my maple/brown sugar (same as above)

My buddy that processes a lot of meat uses Curley's

I buy mine at Costco. Only wife and I now and we don't eat enough sausage to warrant making my own.

Sounds good to me. Those are what I added to Pop's athough I might suggest lemon juice in place of the vinegar for the citric acid.

This is an Oldie but Goodie from Diggingdogfarm. I've made this quite a few times. Its similar to National Brands.
Reminds me, we are out of Breakfast Sausage. We switch between Jimmy Dean and Bob Evans. Both are tasty...JJ
