this is incredible. we didn't have all the fresh spices on hand but i faked it using Poultry Seasoning which is basically all of these spices only dried (McCormicks brand is what i happened to have) and it was perfect. Read More

Holy Yum! I didn't follow the ingredient measurements exactly but it turned out great! I like the idea of using maple syrup next time. Read More

Loved it as written. Good to taste REAL sausage again and know exactly what is in the food I'm giving my family. To make it even better the cost ended up being almost half of what I would have paid for the store-bought stuff. And it tastes half as good as this! Thanks. Read More

This is great sausage. I quit looking for a sausage recipe after I tried this one. I don't keep fresh spices around so I used dried at half the recommended amount where fresh was called for. Yum. I make them into little meatballs and bake them. In the morning I half or quarter a few and throw them in with potatoes and eggs. Read More

Little too much sage and also a little spicy for us (but that's a personal taste preference). Not sure you need both cayenne and hot pepper flakes but I would omit the cayenne in the future and cut the sage in half. Also sausage patties are not very thick so plan on reducing your cooking time otherwise you'll have dried out sausage. Overall pretty good recipe. Read More

Our daughter doesn't eat pork ('cause pigs are cute!) so I make her turkey sausage quite often. I happened to see this recipe. It looked interesting and had great reviews. I used a 2.5 lb. package of ground turkey from Sam's Club and adjusted the spice amounts accordingly. It was pouring rain so I didn't bother cutting fresh herbs. I used dried sage dried thyme and a dash of herbes de provence and halved the quantity (dried vs. fresh). This is hands down one of the best sausages I've ever made. Not just the best turkey sausage the best of ANY kind! Thanks for the great recipe! Read More

I don't think I can ever buy commercial sausage again! I omitted all the pepper (I don't like spicy sausage) added more sage (I love sage!) and used dried spices because I didn't have fresh. Excellent recipe!! Seriously you have to make this!! Next time I might add some shredded apple for a sweet variation. Read More

These are awesome!! I used ground chicken because that's what I had in the freezer and I didn't have any nutmeg so I added a little paprika. The whole family loved them! If I would've known how easy it was to make breakfast sausage I would've done it a long time ago! And love knowing what is going into my food. Read More
