Nutrition & Calorie Comments  

I made a mistake by doubling the red pepper flakes so it was a wee bit too strong for me. This is something I will make a point of making to keep on hand. Purchase ground pork from farmers market to use to make this. Excellent! Being on a salt limit, this came as a blessing! Submitted by:

Tried this for the first time. I really liked it just need to tone down the heat a bit for myself and my husband. My husband who loves salt even said it wasn't bad besides the heat and for him just needs a touch bit more salt but said he could get use to it. Submitted by:

I made these for my mom for mothers day brunch (she has high blood pressure and is on a strict low sodium diet) and she LOVED them. I will probably tweak them to my taste in the future however i was really pleased with how they turned out. Submitted by:

Really enjoyed. Thinking of adding just a bit of Salt Sense next time. Also love the Maple Syrup idea I read about. Submitted by:

I make a double batch of this every 2 months. I make it into meatball size balls, flatten, freeze on a baking sheet, bag 4 to a bag for our very own sausage and egg English muffins on Sunday mornings.; served with wasabi mayo, they are delicious. No one knows they are saltfree! Submitted by:

Making sodium reduced sausage is one of my current goals - with DH´s blood pressure in mind. Thank you for putting this out, Coach Meg! Will review and rate after making it. Submitted by:

So glad to find this easy recipe for breakfast sausage. I've avoided sausage (and therefore Sausage Gravy and Biscuits), since being put on a low sodium diet. I also found No Sodium Baking Powder, so I can enjoy biscuits now too. Submitted by:

Reviews suggested adding a little salt, onion and garlic powder. Submitted by:

Sparkpeople - why are you handing out misinformation?

11.1 grams of fat translates to over 99 calories of fat. 2/3 of the 147.7 calories are from FAT! Why go there?

I used 93/7 ground turkey instead of pork, added some fresh garlic, onion powder, and a pinch of salt. And I did a teeny test patty before cooking the entire batch so I could add more seasoning if needed. Also letting it sit in the fridge overnight helps it taste even yummier, if you have time!

This week ground pork was on sale for $1.49 a pound, so this was very economical. Everybody at my house liked it. Commercial sausage makers need to stand up at take note: make a truly low-sodium product available or else many of us will do without or improvise. Thanks Chef Meg for the recipe. Submitted by:

too much pepper for our tastes - I cut both the black and red to 1/4 tsp each. I also added 1/4 tsp of seasalt to - still a whole lot less sodium than prepared sausage (1/4 tsp seasalt is 400 mg so raises 136 mg/svg - not bad). I also used frozen apple juice concentrate for the liquid - nice! Submitted by:

Recipe sounds great, to cut the fat more, I'm going to use ground chicken, along with the pork, about half and half, apple juice, and a pinch of salt. (recipe say's low sodium, not no sodium. IJS Submitted by:

Really good. A lo-cal sausage, easy to make, and no bad chemicals. What more could you ask for? I doubled the thyme and sage and dropped the red pepper flakes. My family liked which was a pleasant surprise. Will make again. Didn't miss the salt at all. Submitted by:

My daughter-in-law and niece are allergic to sausage. I'm going to try this and see how it works. I'm always looking for lower sodium food.
I'm with the others who wish pictures were actual results of the foods prepared by Chef Meg.

We used 90/10 ground pork sausage and I halved the red pepper flakes. Good for breakfast and helps reduce my daily sodium! Submitted by:

Good base recipe. I mixed ½ ground pork w/ ½ ground chicken to reduce the fat but it wasn’t quite fatty enough. Next time 2:1 pork to chicken should do it. Had to 3x the amount of herbs used though, not enough flavor otherwise. Reduce red pepper if you don't like heat. Submitted by:

I used fresh ground turkey and 2 TBS sodium free chicken stock....delicious!
(eating turkey sausage vs. bacon is a healthy switch for me)

Thanks for suggesting a lower sodium version. First batch seemed a little dry. Trying again and also altering seasoning by adding fennel and reduing red paper was too much red pepper for my younger kid. Submitted by:

I forgot the liquid, and didn't have sage so I subbed poultry seasoning, used some Nu-Salt and it was okay, I will add garlic powder next time and keep "tweeking" it to suit our taste buds. Thanks for the recipe I never thought about making sausage from scratch. Submitted by:

These are very good and nicely flavored; the seasoning is well balanced. I did add to minced cloves of fresh garlic and 1/4 tsp of oregano. These could use a touch of salt but I just sprinkle a little ground sea salt over top while cooking next time. Otherwise, very good! Submitted by:

I made them for family members one morning. I was watching my calories close that day so I decided not to have any. Boy was I sorry. The family loved them. They now want me to save more of your recipies @ pass them along. Submitted by:

I tried the suggestion of 1/2 ground chicken & 1/2 ground turkey for less calories. I LOVE the recipe, I only found one problem and that is it seemed to be a little dry because it was so lean. I added the two tbls of apple juice to the meat for moisture. Any suggestions for lo cal moisture? Submitted by:
