We have been cooking sausage in this house it seems like non-stop. I still can’t get over how much better homemade sausage tastes versus store bought. I love spicy foods, but I’ve never really been a fan of spicy sausage because of how it tasted.. Until now. I made this sausage and we ate it on toast. All of it. It was supposed to be for breakfast through the week, but it didn’t last that long. It’s the perfect level of spiciness; not too mild and not burn your mouth off hot. Pure awesomeness!
This is delicious in gravy too.
2 pounds ground pork
4 tsp turbinado or light brown sugar
2 tsp dried parsley
3-4 tsp crushed red peppers
1-1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp black pepper
1/2 tsp thyme
1/4 tsp ground sage
1/8 tsp ground rosemary (or 1/4 tsp crushed rosemary)
1/8 tsp ground nutmeg
Mix all ingredients together in bowl.
Form into patties and cook on medium heat for 5-7 minutes per side.
Make sure the patties are cooked thoroughly and no pink remains inside.
