Homemade Grilled Breakfast Sausage Patties
I looked and looked at the grocery store for a breakfast sausage that did not include sugar. It was a long and fruitless search, so I decided to make it myself. After a couple of tries, yielding rather bland tasting sausage, I realized that commercial sausage sits with its seasonings and preservatives, and possibly, flavor enhancers, in the grocer's refrigerator case for a long time. When you make this sausage, please don't skip the resting time in the refrigerator, because this allows the seasonings to bloom.
Rotating the patties will create grill marks and closing the lid traps any developing smoke for additional flavor. Be sure to monitor for flare-ups.
