Experience the Joy of DIY Breakfast

When it comes to breakfast, convenience is great, but sometimes nothing beats making something from scratch. This Beef Breakfast Sausage recipe is a prime example. It’s incredibly easy to prepare, bursting with flavor, and perfect for meal prep. Plus, by making your own sausage, you have full control over the ingredients, so you can say goodbye to processed meat and enjoy a healthier, tastier breakfast treat.

Unleash the Tantalizing Flavors

So, what goes into making this homemade beef breakfast sausage? Let’s take a look at the key ingredients:

  • Ground Beef: We recommend using 80/20 ground beef for the best combination of flavor and texture, but you can opt for leaner varieties if you prefer.
  • Spices: This recipe is a harmonious blend of garlic powder, onion powder, smoked paprika, dried sage, dried thyme, and crushed red pepper flakes. A touch of sea salt brings out all the flavors. In place of or alongside the red pepper flakes, you can also experiment with black pepper or other seasonings of your liking.
  • Oil: When cooking these beef sausages, reach for avocado or olive oil. However, any cooking oil or a mix of oil and butter will work just fine.

Mastering the Art of Homemade Sausage

Here are some tips and tricks to ensure your homemade beef breakfast sausage turns out perfectly:

  • Choose the Right Ground Beef: Go for at least 80/20 ground beef to ensure a rich flavor and ideal texture.
  • Mix the Spices Separately: Combine the spices in a small bowl before adding them to the ground beef. This way, you’ll ensure even distribution throughout the meat.
  • Shape with Care: Use your hands to tightly form the sausage mixture into discs. This will prevent them from falling apart during cooking.
  • Cooking Temperature: Aim for medium to medium-high heat to achieve a beautifully browned and crisp exterior without overcooking the interior.
  • Get Creative: Feel free to adjust the seasoning to suit your taste. You can experiment with additions like minced onion, oregano, marjoram, or even a touch of brown sugar for a sweeter sausage. Don’t hesitate to try pre-made seasoning blends too!
  • Fresh Herbs for a Burst of Flavor: Consider using minced fresh sage instead of dried sage to add a pop of fresh taste.

A Breakfast Fit for Kings

These beef breakfast sausage patties are delicious on their own, but they also pair perfectly with eggs, pancakes, or waffles. For a complete breakfast experience, serve them alongside Blackstone potatoes or sweet potato fries. The options are endless, and the choice is yours!
