Spicy Pork Breakfast Sausage - Extra Lean

Submitted by: MOVEITMARY

Introduction

When I saw the calorie and fat count on the "lowfat" breakfast sausage in the store, I decided to make my own using extra lean pork. It turned out great, and only took a few minutes.

Ingredients

    1 1/2 pounds 95% lean ground pork
    1 tsp. salt
    3/4 tsp. black pepper
    1 tsp. cayenne
    1 tsp. crushed red pepper flakes
    1/2 tsp. sage
    1/2 tsp. thyme
    1/2 tsp. marjoram or oregano
    1/4 tsp. nutmeg

    (adjust the spices to your own tastes)

Tips

If you have time, let the sausage sit in the refrigerator for several hours before cooking to let the spices permeate the meat more fully.
For make-ahead uncooked patties: measure the sausage into 1-ounce balls, then press into the cups of a silicon muffin pan, freeze, then they pop right out (does not work well with hard muffin tins). Takes a little time doing them in batches, but it is so convenient to have the patties ready to fry.


Directions

Combine all in a large bowl and smoosh together until the spices are evenly distributed throughout. It's easier to use your hands than a spoon.
Fry in patties or crumbled until thoroughly cooked.
Eat as is or use in other recipes.

(note: takes more prep time if you make it up into patties)

Serving Size: Makes 20 1-oz. patties.
