Michael's Breakfast Sausage Seasoning Mix

Rated as 4.33 out of 5 Stars

"My husband makes some of the best breakfast sausage I've ever had, and he was gracious enough to share the seasoning recipe! He doesn't make it too sweet on purpose--because I usually drench the sausage patties with maple syrup anyway--so if you prefer a sweeter variation, you could always add more brown sugar to taste. This seasoning amount is enough for 1 pound of ground pork."

  1. Mix together kosher salt, sage, pepper, brown sugar, coriander, and ginger. Store in a tightly sealed container until ready to use.


  • Cook's Note:
  • You can also make a spicy variation by adding red pepper flakes to taste. To make mixing the seasoning into the ground pork a little easier, I like to add 1 tablespoon of water into the meat alongside the seasonings, before mixing it all together--this ensures everything combines evenly.

It was a bit mild for us. But it was a great spice blend to start with. I added toasted & crushed anise & fennel seed (2tsp each). It was delicious.
