They say the two things you should never watch being made are policy/laws and sausage. I spent three years working for the Washington State House of Representatives in my 20’s, so it seems like the next bucket list box to check is actually making sausage!

Yes! Bake at 400 degrees on a rimmed baking sheet for 10 minutes, flip, and then another 7-10 minutes. As long as you are heating your oven up to 400 degrees AND like breakfast meats, how about baking some bacon?
You can also cook it in a skillet if you’d like. I prefer cast iron because it will give you that delicious sear on the top. Cook on medium heat for 3-5 minutes on each side. Remove from heat when they are cooked through.

Personally, my favorite cooking method is using a giant electric griddle. I can cook 15 patties at a time and the clean up is a breeze. We love this for pancakes as well, and my sister also uses hers for large batches of eggs. Even better, it is ceramic and not Teflon.

Pro Tips/Recipe Notes

  • Need to make more or less of the recipe? Click and slide the “servings” number on the recipe card and the ingredients will adjust as needed. Easy peasy lemon squeezy.
  • Give the mix 1-24 hours in the fridge to rest and let the ingredients settle and the flavors to meld.
  • Want to make a bit sweeter sausage? Try adding 2 tsp brown sugar or 1 tbsp of maple syrup to the mix.
  • Cook thoroughly, cool, and freeze for super easy breakfasts. Heat in the microwave for 25-30 seconds for a fast start to your day.
  • Set aside some of the mix to brown in non-patty form. Cook and freeze for use in multiple dishes like in Zuppa Toscana, Vegetable Soup With Mini Cheese Ravioli, or as a topping on homemade pizza.
  • If you want to freeze patties uncooked, freeze on a baking sheet lined with parchment. Once fully frozen, remove from the parchment and transfer to a freezer bag.

  1. My hubby has been making our breakfast sausage in a similar way for quite some time.  I actually prefer it to the prepackaged stuff!  I definitely like combining turkey and pork.  YUM!  Now I want breakfast for dinner!  

  2. These look really tasty!!  What a great idea!  Yum.

  3. LOL I wish you would have said moist, unlike most, I love the word moist. Most foods I want moist!! Including sausage, I usually do a blend of pork and something else also. These look delicious and full of flavor!

  4. These are great!  Great tip on using the griddle as well, so much easier.
