Breakfast Sausage


  • 1 lb ground pork, turkey, or chicken

  • ¼ tsp ground black pepper

  • ¼ tsp dried sage, crushed

  • ¼ dried tsp dried thyme, crushed

  • ¼ tsp dried rosemary, crushed

  • ⅛  - ¼ tsp coriander

  • ⅛  - ¼ tsp nutmeg

  • 1 - 2 tsp brown sugar

  • ⅛  - ¼ tsp cayenne pepper (optional or to taste)

  • ⅛  - ¼ tsp red pepper flakes (optional or to taste)


Thoroughly combine seasonings with ground meat. (I wear vinyl gloves and mix by hand.) Refrigerate meat mixture at least ½ hour to give flavors an opportunity to meld. (Longer is even better.)


Brown meat in a skillet, breaking up chunks to desired size. (Add 1-2 tablespoons oil to skillet if using lean meat.)
