Breakfast Sausage Patty

This is a  great breakfast sausage recipe for any occasion. If you want sausage when you go camping you can make this ahead of time and freeze it. I use my KitchenAid stand mixer, freeze the patties, and then I can use them anytime. Breakfast sausage is one of my favorite breakfast meats and when I recently acquired a meat grinder for my KitchenAid stand mixer I searched around for a good recipe. There are a huge variety of ways to make breakfast sausage and sausage in general. Because I like my sausage with a little kick and I couldn’t find a good recipe that had that much kick to it, I came up with this. If you want to reduce the spices you can always do so and remove the cayenne pepper. Or be daring and make your breakfast sausage sizzle even when it is not in the pan. I also like a little savory flavor with my sausage so reduce the salt content if you are trying to reduce sodium in your diet. That’s the joy of making it yourself, you can make it how ever you like.

Link Breakfast Sausage

This recipe makes sausage patties but another excellent way to enjoy this recipe is to make links. You will need a link making tool like the KitchenAid sausage maker and some sausage casings. You can get these from any good kitchen store or online by following the links in this recipe. Some people will add smoke flavor to their sausage by placing a drop or two of liquid smoke in the meat and mixing it. Either way, this is an excellent recipe for adding very tasty meat to your breakfast.
