This simple mix is delicious with ground pork, ground turkey, ground chicken, or even vegan ground "meat."
Recipe type: Breakfast
Cuisine: American
Serves: 10 ounces (enough for 30 pounds of meat)
  • 5 ounces ground black pepper
  • 2 ounces salt
  • 2 ounces ground nutmeg
  • 1 ounce crushed sage
  1. In a medium bowl, stir together the pepper, salt, nutmeg, and salt. Or you can add the ingredients to a storage container, seal and shake to combine.
  2. Store the spice mix sealed in an airtight container at room temperature.
Basic Prepared Breakfast Sausage: Place 3 pounds of ground meat in a large bowl. Add 1 ounce of the spice mix and gently stir until the spices look evenly distributed. Do not overmix. If you have time, let the meat chill in the refrigerator for an hour or more before cooking. Shape the meat into small, 1.5-ounce patties. The patties can be frozen. To cook, heat a tablespoon of oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add some patties and cook for about 5 minutes per side, or until cooked through. (The time will depend on the meat you use and thickness of the patties.)
