Who doesn’t love breakfast sausage? And when you take the extra time to make it homemade you will have a hard time eating the packaged stuff again. After trying a few different recipes I finally created “The One.” Mom was right! When you meet, “The One” you will know it! lol I don’t think she was talking about sausage but after first bite I knew this was it. Like any other recipe, add or subtract whatever you want to make it satisfy your amazing palette. That’s the fun part, right? This recipe does have a bit of heat so if you want to avoid that I would leave out the red pepper flakes.
I usually buy Pork Butt in bulk and grind it up myself, one, because it’s cheaper and two, because I like to control the consistency. However, whether you grind it yourself or buy the meat already ground it’s still amazingly good. I was just so blown away by the flavor I wanted to share these right away with my family and the whole neighborhood! So I asked my teenage daughter, “Is it weird to give sausage away as a gift?” As usual, she gave me that “Mom you’re not serious” look and replied, “Yes, that is weird.” But I don’t care what she says if someone handed me some homemade breakfast sausage that tasted like this, I would be beside myself.
But, you be the judge.
