Homemade Breakfast Sausage

Today I dug out the book Encyclopedia of Country Living;So I could make homemade sausage with a large package of pork ribs I had in the freezer.

Just look at this price...$5.04 for just over 5-pounds; what a deal!

My spices consisted of salt, sage and black pepper; all mixed together and set to the side.

Next I rinsed the ribs and placed them in a pan to drain while I began cutting off the bones.

Once the bones are cut off I rinsed the meat a second time; I do not like having small slivers of bone in my sausage. Next I layered the meat slices in a pan and sprinkle the seasoning on each piece.

I like to add the seasoning before grinding so the flavor is well mixed.

As I began cooking a few patties I realized my sausage didn't have enough fat mixed in the meat; so I ended up lean sausage.However, the sausage tasted great and not dry like I had expected. In fact, the sausage had a very nice "meaty" taste to it.

Plain Pork Sausage

10 pounds fresh pork

5 tablespoons salt

2 tablespoons sage

2 tablespoons black pepper

I cut this recipe in half and it made a very nice amount of sausage.

Thanks for the recipe. We have some wild hog that a friend is giving to us soon and I thought I might try some pan sausage with it. My hubby has made venison sausage and he had to add fat to it, but since these hogs have been fed some corn I hoping the meat will have a little fat on it.

Thanks for the recipe. Our locally owned grocery store makes their own breakfast sausage, but the flavor isn't consistent from one purchase to the next. Sooo, I just might have to try this. :)
