Christmas Breakfast Sausage - How to make a easy homemade breakfast sausage for Christmas morning

Sage and clementine zest really make this sausage!  Super easy recipe to make the best sausage patties in your life!  I hope you give these a try. 

Freshly ground sausage patties with no artificial ingredients like some of those store bought ones.  Homemade sausage patties are perfect for anytime!

This recipe is for about 3 lbs of pork shoulder.

Mix all the spices and herbs together.  Cube up the pork shoulder and mix in the seasoning mixture.  Place the pork on a baking sheet and put in freezer for 20-30 minutes to firm up just a little. 

Feed the pork into a meat grinder, alternating fatty and not so fatty pieces.   I used the small setting on the grinder. 

I recommend frying a couple patties up right away to taste for seasoning.  They might taste a little under seasoned but - remember that the real test is after it sits in the fridge for 24 hours! 

The bonus recipe - A sausage sandwich cooked on the Kettle-Q.  Bread toasted on one side with 2 fried eggs, 2 slices of 3 pepper jack cheese and 2 homemade sausage patties.

Chopped Fresh Herbs - Pineapple Sage and Thyme - regular sage will work just as well
Zest of 5 Clementines
3 T Fennel Seeds
2 t Salt
2 t Fresh Cracked Pepper
1/4 t Oregano
1/4 t Basil
1/4 t Parsley
1/8 - 1/4 t Crushed Red Pepper
pinch nutmeg
