Of Breakfast Sausage

Of Breakfast Sausage
I’ve mentioned before that American-style breakfast sausage is the #1 item on my list of foods that I miss. It just doesn’t exist here (except on McDonald’s Egg McMuffins, I think, but I don’t eat those anyway). The supermarket just lacks that section with Jimmy Dean links and patties, and those big plastic tubes of sausage meat. Anyway, Danielle is in the same boat, and yesterday she linked to this recipe for homemade sausage patties. I decided to give it a go. I used regular pork mince from the supermarket, then dumped in all the recommended spices. It made about 8 small patties. I fried up four and froze the other four. We had them with pancakes this morning, and you know what? They were great! I need to play around with the ratios a bit to get them just how I like them, but they had that undeniably American breakfast sausage taste. Hooray! Biscuits and gravy, here I come…

  1. I’m salivating already, Kris! Now…what to do about the lack of “real” bacon. That’s what I miss most, aside from Mexican food…

  2. I’m so glad you liked them! I had the same thought as you regarding Biscuits and Gravy, so I sought out some recipes for those as well. If you come up with something better, I’d love to hear about it.

    P.S. — still haven’t found decent Mexican food in Germany after looking for five years, so we’re noshing as much as we can of it for another week in Mexico before heading back to home to Germany. Fortunately, German does magical things with pork and “American style” bacon is available there, if you know where to look.
