Recipe by Christie Howell 2000

My husband is from Tennessee, and now being in California there are things that he really misses. I was going to see if there was a way to get some Tennessee Pride Sausage shipped to us and keep a supply in the freezer but my father-in-law said its just not like it used to be. I came across this recipe with no intension of coming up with a copy to theirs, but just to explore the world of sausage making in general....

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Combine all ingredients and mix well. Store in an air tight container.
  2. Add 2 tsp of Spice Mix to 1 pound of fresh ground pork. (This whole spice mix is enough for 10 lbs of fresh ground pork).
  3. NOTE: We wait until early fall when pork shoulders tend to go on sell for the best price and grind our own, then package up and freeze 1 pound packages for future use of a variety of different sausage recipes. I know our local grocery stores carry fresh ground pork just like hamburger. Ask your butcher if you don't see it :).
  4. Add a couple tablespoons of oil to pan if your sausage is really lean.
  5. Pat sausage out into 4-6 patties depending on desired size preference.
  6. Fry on medium heat for about 4 minutes, flip and fry other side for another 3 minutes. Make sure sausage is fully cooked. Time may very depending on how thick you make your patties.
