Homemade Breakfast Sausage Patties
Making your own breakfast sausage is a great way to control the flavor yourself. Once you see how easy it is, you’ll want to experiment with new spices and seasonings — so why not make it a holiday regular?
Test Kitchen Tip
Chilling the sausage mixture makes it easier to slice into even patties.
Combine pork, brown sugar, garlic, sage, salt, fennel seeds, pepper flakes, and nutmeg.
Divide sausage mixture in half and shape each half into a log. Wrap logs in plastic and freeze until slightly firm, 20 minutes, or chill at least 1 hour or overnight.
Unwrap logs and slice into twelve patties, reshaping as necessary.
