HOMEMADE BREAKFAST SAUSAGE ground pork is used to create some good ol' fashioned breakfast sausage.
As someone who has a limited consumption of pre-packaged foods, I’ve had to figure out how to re-create some of my favourite items that in my past life (which was not too long ago — five years, max), I would have purchased ready-made. One of those items is breakfast sausage.
I love both bacon and breakfast sausage, but after transitioning to the SCD diet, both are breakfast items that I no longer eat in their pre-packaged form. While there are certain brands that probably make both of those things in an SCD legal way, I personally haven’t been able to find them near me.
These homemade breakfast sausages work really aren’t that difficult or time-consuming to make, and you could definitely play around the flavours. If you’re not on the SCD diet/tolerate maple syrup, you could swap that in in place of the honey, and perhaps try adding oregano instead of rosemary.
I’ll make them in both patty shape, or else I’ll form them into little breakfast sausages– usually I’ll do it both ways in one batch so I have variety, and then of course like any good SCD’er, I’ll freeze some for future breakfast sandwich and brunch use.
