DIRECTIONS

  • To make the sausage base, in a large bowl, mix together all of the ingredients until well-combined and as smooth as possible. Cover with plastic wrap and chill for at least 3 hours in the fridge, or overnight.
  • Portion out the sausage into rounds and pat out into thick patties. Set a large cast iron skillet over medium-high heat. Cook the sausage in batches, until browned on both sides, about 4 minutes per side.
  • To make sage sausage, add in the chopped sage to the sausage base from above and cook as directed.
  • To make hot sausage, add in the cayenne pepper, chili pepper, and red pepper flakes to the sausage base from above and cook as directed.
  • To make maple sausage, add in the maple syrup and maple extract (if using) to the sausage base from above and cook as directed.
