Old-Fashioned English Breakfast Sausage

Copycat Jimmy Dean Breakfast Sausage

-Kelly Cameron

Kittencal's Sausage Sawmill Gravy

"This is very good. I made this after my daughter requested it for dinner the other night. I was on the lookout for a creamier gravy then mine and this is it.”


Sausage Brunch Muffins

“We love these. Today makes the third time in in five weeks I'm making them! I've used regular sausage and turkey sausage; both work great, and I usually toss the chopped onion into the sausage as it's cooking to soften it.”


Cheese & Sausage Breakfast Casserole

"This is so easy and delicious. I did not make ahead of time and it turned out perfect. I used skim milk with success. Will be making again!"


Sausage Breakfast Muffins

"These were pretty good! My husband summed it up perfectly when he said it tasted as if you got a biscuit from McDonald’s and put some sausage on it (which is not a bad thing, by the way). After I made and tasted the first batch I added a seven-ounce can of green chiles and some more cheese, which I liked better.”


Sausage Breakfast Cookies

"Delicious with maple sausage!"

-Sarah M.

Fortnum & Masons Authentic Scotch Eggs

"Childhood memories brought to life. Marvelous. I made the recipe, exactly as written, and sat outside and snacked them up. Superb. I had this or a very similar egg over 50 years ago with my grandpop.”

-Barefoot Beachcomber

Old Fashioned English Spiced Bangers

“I made these tonight with a couple of tiny alterations — I don't much like nutmeg, so used fennel seed (which loves pork) and added a good pinch of chili flakes.”


Mini Sausage & Cheese Breakfast Biscuit Sandwiches

“They were great, quick to do and enjoyed by the whole family. I used the precooked turkey sausage patties, so made it even faster.”

-Aunt Paula

Sausage Crescent Breakfast Casserole

"My brother, Chris, made it, and he is 14. We used sharp cheddar instead of Monterrey Jack. It's delicious!”


Sausage Quiche

"I was skeptical about using milk and only two eggs but the end result was a quiche that was soft, creamy, and perfect! The crust was not soggy and everyone in my family enjoyed.”


Turkey Breakfast Sausage

"The addition of the egg white made these one of the moister turkey sausages tried, and something I will now include in preparing any recipe of this kind.”


Country-Style Breakfast Sausage

This recipe supplements some of the pork with ground turkey to make a leaner breakfast sausage.

Homemade Breakfast Sausage

"Honestly, I was kind of surprised how good this was! We don't eat pork, so I used all hamburger, and was expecting just that — flavored hamburger. The beauty of this recipe is that somewhere along the way, the combination of the spices and water changed the texture of the meat to a more 'sausage-y' consistency!”


Cheesy Sausage Balls

"Just made these ahead for company tomorrow. I will have to run to the store for more ingredients because my husband and I can't quit eating them! These are the best sausage balls I've ever had.”


Vegan Breakfast Sausage

“Fabulous! Just the taste I was looking for. I baked mine in the oven at 400 degrees for 15 minutes per side, then put them in the freezer for quick breakfasts before work.”

-Barb 3663

Seitan Chorizo Crumbles

"Amazing! I made sure to really brown the crumbles for a tad longer even than eight minutes. Beats meat — way more flavor!"


Decadent Breakfast Sausage Casserole

"This one's a definite winner — love the make-ahead feature! I've made it many times and usually add a few ingredients to the mix.”

Sausage & Cheese Scones for Your Freezer

"These scones were wonderful! Very tasty, soft scones. I wasn't too sure because the dough was not really kneadable — was very, very sticky and most ended up on my hands! But I didn't add more flour and they turned out well!”


Make-Ahead Sausage & Egg Brunch Enchiladas

“This is great! I love the twist of pouring the egg mixture on top of the rest of the dish, and the green pepper gives it a nice presentation.”

-Big D Texas

Turkey Breakfast Sausage II

"Love this recipe! But I do add extra sage, salt and pepper. I do not add ginger. I don’t think it belongs in sausage.”


Scottish Lorne Sausages

“So far this is the best recipe I can follow. I use this recipe to satisfy all our restaurant customers, which are mostly British, so they can feel at home even when they are here in Indonesia.”


Special Beef Breakfast Sausage

“While I enjoyed the sausage, I kept thinking of burgers and really think this would be great on a bun with cheese and ketchup, sort of like a sausage burger. Maybe with a little more seasoning added it would be more of what I think of for sausage.”


Sausage Rolls

"Great easy recipe; very tasty sausage rolls; I also added carrot."


Vegan Sausage Crumbles

"I love this recipe! I have been vegan for over 10 years and have probably tried every store-bought vegan sausage available. I have used it in sausage gravy so far, but will definitely find other uses for this fantastic recipe."

-Elizabeth H.

Chorizo Gravy

"I was unsure about this recipe because it only had three reviews. But wow, it is a winner. I followed the recipe exactly and it turned out perfect! I am going to have to make some biscuits now to eat the leftovers because this gravy is so good I was eating it with a spoon."

-Jane M.

Turkey Chorizo

"Thank you for this. My husband has a heart condition and has been missing chorizo. He is thrilled with this recipe.”

-Cassandra H.

Vegetarian Sausage Rolls

"These are awesome! I just made a half recipe to try them out. I was a bit skeptical about the non-meat filling but they fooled my husband!”


Quick & Easy Sausage & Cheese Muffins

"I made these to take on a trip to a cabin over the holidays. We had them fresh the day I made them. I reheated and served with cream gravy and jelly a few days later and they worked very well.”


Hash Browns Sausage Casserole

"Terrific breakfast casserole! The hash browns stay nice and crisp, even after baking with the egg mixture. You'd swear there were more than four eggs; the milk really stretches the mixture without becoming soggy.”


Mexican Chorizo

“Amazing! I doubled it and I used 99 percent lean ground turkey instead of the pork. Regardless of what you do with it, it is delicious.”


Homemade Summer Sausage

“Just made this and was a bit skeptical, but not only was it so easy, it came out delicious. Not a true summer sausage, but it was great. My girlfriend, who’s not a fan of summer sausage, loved it.”

-S B.5402

Homemade Kielbasa

“An excellent starting point for a DIY sausage noob like myself! I added almost double the garlic and it turned out awesome.”


Easy Sausage Pancake Casserole

“Fast, easy and taste great! Had some fresh pork sausage that I cooked up with a few spices. Used Krusteaz brand pancake mix and added a little canola oil to the batter.”


Sausage & Grits Casserole

“Made a delicious and hearty breakfast with scrambled eggs, biscuits, strawberry freezer jam and fruit. I love grits, and this is a great recipe.”


Vegan Breakfast Sausages

"Just made this and I have to say it's delicious! I'm usually not a fan of seitan, but the taste and texture are perfect. My son literally did a dance after his first bite. Goodbye store-bought veggie sausage!”

-Sonia N.

Welsh Glamorgan Vegetarian Sausages

"Excellent. I used whole eggs by mistake and they still worked out. I also used a mixture of cream cheese and cheddar as it was all I had and that also worked no problem.”


Sausage Breakfast Rolls

"These were very good! I used maple sausage. I have a hard time finding something my daughter will eat before school, but she loved these.”
