My kids and I love this recipe, but it can be expensive to make every day. Recently I got an idea from the Taco Bell incident. If they can add oats (which are really good for you anyway) to their taco meat, why can't I add it to my sausage? I ground some oats up in my food processor and added it to the sausage with a little water. It tasted great and I got an extra half pound!
I will make this again but the amount of sage in this recipe was too much. Next time I will use half the amount. This may seem a small thing but it totally ruined what I'm sure would have otherwise have been a great recipe. My family all agreed, too.
Wow, very tasty. Took some ideas from others, made 3lbs ground turkey, 1lb ground pork. Didn't have fennel seeds, but since it's the locorice flavor we want, I substituted with anise extract, I also had star anise which would have also worked. Didn't have thyme either so omitted and it still turned out awesome.I like sausage on the sweet side so added 1 tspoon of brown sugar and 3 teaspoons of maple syrup, which I like on sausage and strangely not on pancakes.
I subbed 1 lb 90% lean pork and 1 lb white ground turkey, then doubled the spices (used cracked red pepper instead of cayenne). Just my personal preferences. A wonderful tasty recipe for the family! Thank you!!
This is very good! my youngest son is allergic to nitrates so store-bought bacon and sausage are a no-no in our house and purchasing nitrate-free foods can be expensive!
This was easy to make, I purchased 4 lbs. ground turkey from Costco, prepped the seasonings (leaving out cayenne & white pepper). The meat was cold! So I used my Kitchen aid mixer to stir it all up. I immediatley cooked up enough for breakfast right then...it was very good. Let the rest sit a couple of hours, formed into patties and baked in the oven and into the freezer they go. This is a trifecta winner at our house: good taste, less cost, and healthy!
What a blessing this recipe is! We hold to a kosher diet so no Pork :( With this recipe we are able to enjoy a better meat that leaves all other breakfast sausage in the dust.
This is very good. Based on other reviews, I reduced the amount of pepper that I added and we felt that it was not hot enough. Next time I will follow the recipe exactly.
This is a very simple and yet very good recipe. I tried it twice, first with the brown sugar and found it too sweet. This was agreed on by the entire family of seven. Second try I used smoked salt in place of regular salt and then doubled the sweet spices. That was a perfect blend and is now my little tweak to the recipe. All the other spices I left the same, save the garlic I only used fresh no powder, just didn't add it in at all. Thanks for an excellent addition to our morning eggs or evening pancake suppers.
Great recipe! so quick to put together, and great to toss in the freezer for quick breakfast sandwiches to-go.
I didn't have white pepper, fennel seeds, or garlic powder though. Instead, I used caraway seeds, minced fresh garlic, and more black pepper. Just the right amount of bite. I can imagine fennel seeds being perfect though, so I'll pick some up for next time.
I used lean ground turkey, omitted salt, and baked them in the oven so they were even healthier, and I didn't feel robbed of flavours. I did add an egg, which I thought worked well.
Overall, great blend of spices. My family thought the addition of allspice flavours were perfect and very interesting.
AWESOME recipe! The only thing I changed was to cut the Cayenne in half for hubby. REALLY great flavor! I will definitely be making this one again and again! Thank you for sharing!
