Homemade Sausage Patties for Dinner

Tonight for dinner I decided to make a recipe for homemade pork sausage patties that I had seen on one of my favorite food blogs, Homesick Texan. I had purchased all the ingredients and just had to try it. The sausage was wonderful, and she is right. I will probably never purchase ready made sausage again. Here is the recipe, straight from Homesick Texan. I seasoned the sausage just as the recipe states and it was to my liking. It is spicy, but doesn't linger. I loved it.

Breakfast sausage Ingredients:

2 lbs of ground pork
1 tablespoon of sage
2 teaspoons of marjoram
2 teaspoons of thyme
2 teaspoons of red pepper flakes
1/2 teaspoon of cayenne pepper
1 teaspoon of brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon of salt
1/2 teaspoon of black pepper


1. Mix all ingredients together.
2. Form into patties and fry six minutes on each side. Keeps in the refrigerator for a week.

Note: The spice measurements are not an exact science, and what I tend to do while mixing is pinch off a little bit and fry it up to see if I like the flavor. This is what I start with, but feel free to experiment.

I served the sausage with homemade cornbread and cooked kale. It was a simple meal but wonderful. Of course, you can serve the sausage for breakfast. It would be great with eggs, biscuits and gravy.

I like the looks of the whole meal, the sausage looks great paired with the greens and corn bread.

It was a very country meal, which I consider comfort food! Kale recipe coming soon.
