Irish Home Place Breakfast Sausage
- 1 lb plain ground pork
- 1 Tb sea salt
- 1/3 tsp white pepper (black pepper is fine if you don’t have white pepper)
- ½ -1 tsp ground sage
- 1/8 tsp ground rosemary
- 1/3 tsp nutmeg
- ½ med sized onion-finely diced
- Scant 1/8 tsp allspice
- Scant 1/8 tsp cloves
- Scant 1/8 tsp dried ginger
- 1/8 tsp crushed red pepper
- 3 Tb real maple syrup
Note: It’s best to blend the meat and spices together the day before cooking it so the flavors can meld.
When making the sausage grind all of the spices together and then fold into the raw ground pork.
I buy whole leaf or whole spices for better shelf storage and more flavor. Old coffee grinders make great spice grinders.
Form into patties and cook on low until the internal temperature reaches 160°.Print This Post
