Homemade Pork Sausage


Recently I discovered pork loins at the grocery store for a really great deal.  
My family enjoys pork sausage with our breakfast, but it's very expensive.  
So....I bought a couple of the pork loins brought them home and ground them up.  

The meat grinder took me a few minutes to figure out as it's been awhile since I used one. 
Then off we went my boys and I turning and turning until it was all ground up.  

We portioned it out into freezer bags, and popped them in the freezer.  
This way I can use it as sausage or just ground pork for any other recipe.  

After some looking I found this recipe at Sufficient Acres.  

Breakfast Sausage

1 1/2 tsp rubbed sage
1/2 tsp thyme 
1 tsp pepper
1 1/2 tsp salt
1 1/2 parsley
1/4 red pepper flakes
1/2 tsp ground nutmeg 

Mix it all together and make patties and fry.

I don't have rubbed sage, so I used the ground I had. 
I also omitted the red pepper flakes as I didn't have any.  
My family really enjoy it and I'm glad that I have found a way to have sausage for much cheeper than before.  
Do you like to find ways like these to save money? 

Do you love sausage? if so what are your favourite recipes if you make  your own. 

Thanks for dropping by! 
Praying you have a great day!

I have never made sausage before and found your post inspirational, I hadn't realised it was so easy to make your own.
