  Homemade Sausage - Course 101

Homemade Sausage Recipe

General Information About Sausage Recipes

American Homemade Breakfast Sausage recipes are easy to find, but the standard includes salt, pepper and sage.

If you wish, you can just as easily make homemade English Breakfast Sausage (Bangers), which contains a great deal of bread, homemade Irish Breakfast Sausage, which uses bread and loads of garlic, or any other homemade sausage recipe you might care to try.

You can invent your own recipe according to your taste, of course. A word of caution on inventing your own homemade sausage recipe: make a small amount until you're sure you have the flavor you like.

The old time meat men usually fried a small patty from a large batch, to ensure it was just right before they put it on sale.

My Own Homemade Sausage Recipe

This is the recipe used for the homemade sausage made in the photos:

  • 5# of pork shoulder butt, with external fat, and some internal fat removed.
  • 2 Tb. Purified salt. Kosher salt may also be used.
  • 1.5 Tb. Ground pepper
  • 1 Tb. Sage (either rubbed or ground)
  • 1 tsp. Ginger
  • 1 tsp. Nutmeg
  • 1 tsp. Thyme

Dissolve all seasonings in 1-1 1/2 cups ice water.
