Here is a simple and delicious recipe for breakfast sausage. You can reduce or increase the number of red pepper flakes based on how spicy you like your breakfast.
- 1 pound (450 g) lean ground beef
- 1/2 pound (225 g) ground pork
- 2 tablespoons (30 mL) fresh oregano, finely chopped
- 1-2 cloves garlic, minced
- 1 teaspoon (5 mL) fennel seed
- 1 teaspoon (5 mL) sugar
- 1 teaspoon (5 mL) sea salt
- 1/2 teaspoon (2.5 mL) red pepper flakes
- 1/2 teaspoon (2.5 mL) black pepper
Preheat grill for medium-high heat.
In a large mixing bowl, combine ground meat with remaining ingredients.
Form into 4 to 5 inch wide and 1 1/2 inch thick patties. Place sausage patties on the lightly oiled grill grate. Let cook for 12 to 15 minutes, turning a few times during cooking process. Once cooked through (165 F in thickest part of the patty), remove from heat.
These can be served along with eggs and hash brown potatoes, crumbled and used in casseroles, or placed onto an English muffin, croissant, or large biscuit along with egg and cheese to make a delectable breakfast sandwich.
