Time to make the sausage

They had pork shoulder roast on sale for a dollar a pound.I couldn't pass that up. I was able to get good size roast out of it, 3 pounds of ground sausage and 2 pounds of breakfast sausage patties. Not to mention two packages of pork chunks for a stew. I love when I find deals like that.

   My version of homemade  breakfast sausage
2 pounds ground pork shoulder
1 teaspoon sage
1 teaspoon Italian seasoning.
4 pinches of brown sugar. ( if you like a sweet breakfast sausage add more )

1/8 of a teaspoon of my season mix. ( equal parts salt , pepper, and garlic powder mix together.)
Cook a sample patty.
Place plastic wrap over the bowl and place in fridge over night.( this is a must)

I recommend making a sample patty to see if you would like more of any of the ingredients. The amount of seasoning is totally up to your taste. The ingredients will blend together as it sits over night in the fridge.
