By mixing spices like sage, thyme, and pepper, you can recreate the savory taste of traditional breakfast sausages right in your kitchen.

Breakfast Sausage Seasoning

Breakfast Sausage Seasoning is perfect to premake and have ready in your pantry. This recipe is for 1kg of ground pork shoulder, or lean ground pork. It is versatile enough to be used with any ground meat. We will often make 4 jars of the seasoning so we don't have to pull out the recipe every time.
This recipe alone will not make breakfast sausage, you will need 1kg of ground meat & 100ml of near frozen liquid. Usually water, although for a treat blend it with maple syrup as well.

  • This is not a finished breakfast sausage recipe, this is just the seasonings you will need for that recipe. Read below in the notes.


In order to finish this recipe you will need 100ml of liquid at near freezing temperate and ground pork (or other meat). Pour spices over pork, pour water over spices. Mix quickly making sure the pork doesn’t heat up. When done mixing either put into a sausage stuffer using small casings (28-30mm) or make into breakfast patties. 
If you enjoy mathing.
(Weight of Spice / 1000) * weight of meat you have = spice amount
So say you have 2lbs of meat, that’s 908g’s and you are figuring out salt. 
(10 / 1000) * 908 = 9.08 g’s of salt. 
Note On Liquid: Try using something other than water, or a blend of both.
100ml apple juice
50ml of maple syrup and 50ml of water

    Wow! This breakfast sausage is delicious! I made them into patties and froze for camping. Of course I had to fry up a test patty for myself and omg now I want to eat the whole batch.
