"A dry herb blend for giving any ground meat a "sausage" flavoring. Try this not only with ground pork, but also ground turkey, beef, or chicken. Adapted from a recipe that came with one of my pizza pans. Recipe can be doubled, tripled, etc as needed. Each batch is enough to season 1 pound of meat. Leave out the crushed red pepper flakes for milder sausage."
Serving Size: 1 (22 g)

"I just made this, recently we have become mostly vegetarian and I have been searching for a veggie sausage recipe with the right amount of spice. None seemed to have the depth of flavor I've been looking for, so I decided to search out sausage seasoning mixes. This is perfect, I made one addition-sage, because I wanted a more breakfast-y sausage mixture. Excellent!"
"So... I needed some Italian sausage to make #195763, but I did not have any. Food.com to the rescue, as it has so many times before.
This blend was absolutely perfect for my needs, and by the time the soup was finished, you literally could not tell that I had used ground beef instead of Italian sausage.
Thank you for posting this. I will most definitely be using it again."
"A good blend I've used many times. Kept in a pepper mill, I grind as needed."
"I used this recipe yesterday with ground pork. I let sit in the fridge for a couple of hours before cooking to let the spices get into the meat well. The spice mix is fantastic! Nice flavors. I think you could easily omit the fennel and use sage, savory, rosemary, or mace to replace it for breakfast sausage. A keeper blend! Hubby liked too. I can't wait to use it on a pizza!!"
"Absolutely amazing. What a find. I had pork cut up at the butcher, and then seasoned the pieces before putting through the meat grinder (Kitchen Aid). I used it for filling in an omelet, and am picking up some casings to stuff. Unbelievable!"
"Thank you for sharing this recipe. I used this while making sausage gravy and biscuits. I didn't realize I was out of sausage until too late. No one knew that I had really used hamburger! I did add a bit of sage for a more authentic sausage taste."
"I live overseas and we can't get sausage here. This was a great alternative. I used it with ground beef which was all I had and it was great. Thanks for the recipe."
"Love this seasoning blend! I used it to make my own pork sausage to smoke in our smoker. Excellent! Thanks for sharing!"
"We loved this. I have been trying different seasoning blends for homemade pork sausage, but had not found one we really liked until this. I made it exactly as posted. Thanks for sharing."
"This is a great sausage seasoning. I used it to season sausage for biscuits and gravy and it was awesome. Thanks!!"
"Excellent blend....I had some ground pork I wanted to stuff hot banana peppers with and this was so much better than what we buy at the market. I added 1/2 tsp crushed red peppers as we prefer it hotter. Great recipe HeatherFeather!!"
"i like sausage alot and this blend of spices is perfect makes great sausage"
"This was my first attempt to make sausage. This blend sounded very good but I had to make a change. We don't eat salt so I left it out and used onion powder in it's place. Very tasty with just the right amount of heat. I made pork sausage patties and baked them for 15-20 minutes at 375. Thanks for sharing."
"This is a good recipe! I will decrease the paprika next time because I felt it overwhelmed the other flavors .. thanks for posting!"
"Excellent recipe. I use it with my TVP and also in my soy milk gravy."
"How fantastic and sooo much healthier than buying sausage meat!! I used this for recipe #59473 Harissa Pork Patties (also fantastic) and it worked perfectly, thank you very much! This will be used regularly!"
