Better than store-bought, this homemade breakfast sausage is so easy and full of flavor. It’s got everything -savory sage, sweet fennel seed, smokey paprika and more.

We love to drizzle our patties with maple syrup, but they’re also delicious slathered in homemade gravy. I hope you love them as much as we do!

  1. Ooh can’t wait to try this one! I have a ton of bulk ground pork that I bought earlier this year that I’ve been wanting to turn into sausage. This looks great and I’m loving Loriel’s seasoning blends so far! We’ve been chowing on her french onion dip all week. 🙂

    • I haven’t used fresh thyme before but I believe it is double the amount of dry. You’ll want to pick the leaves off the stems so you don’t get any hard pieces of stem in your sausage.

      • You’re correct, Heather. The conversion from dry to fresh is generally twice as much fresh as dry. This makes allowance for the water that is lost in the drying process.

    Made this today for the first time and it was delicious. Just like what I remember breakfast sausage tasting like when I was a kid. My kiddos all loved it too! Thank you for this and for all of the yummy recipes you put together.
