Homemade Sausage {recipe}

Homemade Sausage

Complementing many breakfast dishes, a good sausage recipe is a balance of flavors, one not overpowering the other. Healthy sausage is tough to find in the stores though! Many times it’s full of different fillers, ‘flavors’, and preservatives. Beyond those aspects we have issues with the meat itself and we personally choose to eat mainly grassfed or use the venison my husband gets during hunting season.

So what’s a gal to do?

Well, make your own of course!

Homemade Sausage


 We’ve used this not only for breakfast, but also cooked as ground to add into our spaghetti sauce for a bit of something extra and to top our pizzas!

A big thanks to Michele at Frugal Granola for being the inspiration behind this recipe.
