I was passed some food magazines that Grandma was finished with and scanned the recipes. I came across a recipe sent in for Buttermilk Breakfast Sausage. Mr.Picky often complains that there isn’t enough flavor to sausage when I purchase it. I hate to buy it because it is filled with junk.
We have made sausage in the past and usually let it flavors develop overnight, although this recipe did not require this. It still turned out great. This is probably one of the best sausages I have eaten and will be making it from now on. The sausage is tender and almost melts in your mouth.
The recipe calls for over 2 pounds of sausage and we don’t usually need that much. I took out half the sausage mix before I cooked it and froze it after packaging tightly. Now we have a whole nother batch ready to go. I got about a dozen 4 inch patties out of half the mixture.
- 3/4 cup buttermilk
- 2 1/4 tsp salt
- 1 1/2 tsp brown sugar
- 1 1/2 tsp black pepper
- 3/4 tsp dried marjoram or oregano
- 3/4 tsp dried savory or thyme
- 3/4 tsp cayenne pepper
- 1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
- 2 1/2 lb. ground pork
Milk milk and seasonings in a large bowl.
Add in pork and mix until combined.
Form into patties and cook on medium heat about 5 minutes on each side.
Freeze any remaining sausage for a later date. //
