“Buddah, my DH, made up this recipe several years ago. We couldn't buy decent breakfast sausage, so, he fiddled around with different ingredients until he got the blend he wanted. This beats any commercial stuff we've ever had. It's so simple to mix up, generally, with stuff you already have on hand. The servings are a guess because it depends on the size of each pattie you make, out of a one pound package. Hope it works out good for you, too!”

  1. Place the 5 pounds Ground Pork in large mixing bowl.
  2. Measure out each spice, place in a dixie cup or small glass.
  3. Mix together thoroughly.
  4. Sprinkle spices evenly over Ground Pork, a little at a time, and mix into the meat, with your hands, until incorporated.
  5. Keep adding spices, in small amounts, working them into the Ground Pork, until all is used up, and worked into the meat.
  6. Cover bowl with a tight lid, or, plastic wrap, and let set in the fridge, overnight.
  7. This helps the spices blend into the meat.
  8. Next morning, remove bowl from fridge, let set on the counter for about 20-30 minutes.
