Breakfast Sausage w/o Sage?
 
So the neighbor says last night. Find me a Breakfast Sausage Recipe w/o Sage. (He's a machinist by trade and computers are not his thing.) Says he's tired of sage sausage. Well, I think no problem right? Easier said than done....

So, any tried & true Breakfast Sausage Recipes out there w/o sage? Just looking for something he can mix up & make patties with.

Thanks!!!

Can't think of any tried and true right off the bat, but here are some resources:

Or just make it like normal and leave out the sage?

I know... I suggested just using his regular "sage" sausage recipe and leave the sage out. Not sure that's what he was looking for...

Maybe a sausage by a different name? Italian Sausage or Farm Sausage or Country Sausage?

I found a few w/o sage. We might just have to play around with some of the recipes & see what we get? That might be fun anyway! Get the ol' Disc Wok out & start fryin' up test batches...

Sausage is about like chili or gumbo.... add or omit anything you want. The good thing is, you can test fry a little pattie and adjust seasonings as needed.

That said, here is my Farm Sausage recipe. Just omit the sage for a good starter.

3 lbs. ground pork butt
2 teaspoons ground sage
cup chopped fresh parsley
1 teaspoon dried thyme
1 teaspoon dried basil
1 teaspoon red pepper flakes
2 teaspoons coarse black pepper
1 teaspoon ground ginger
teaspoon minced garlic
cup chopped onion
1 tablespoon Kosher salt
cup ice cold water

Grind the meat, mix in the seasonings and water until well blended. Let rest overnight for seasonings to blend.

Great Advice....

x2 on what Thirdeye said. I'm not a real big fan of sage so I only use about half or a third of the amount the recipe calls for. I add other herbs like marjoram and thyme. also a little ginger.

If you are talking about what I think you are talking about, that is some funny chit! :mrgreen:

One of the best sausage flavors that we make is just a simple salt and pepper mix. That is it. No sage.

Second the salt and pepper sausage thing. Have a butcher here that sells S&P sausage and it is really good.

There is a place out here that does Salt and Pepper sausages, they are terrific. I also like the ones with just a little herbal quality. What Thirdeye says is true, you can pretty much remove one ingredient, or many, and get away with it.

You can use rosemary instead of sage, but not sure that is what he is looking for.
