Spicy Breakfast Sausage


This morning I wanted something unique for breakfast and I wanted it to use things I already had on hand.   So I foraged my freezer and pantry and found half a pound of ground pork, some rye flour and some eggs. So with some simple seasoning I turned the ground pork into a spicy sausage patty, the rye flour into biscuits and fried the eggs.  It was a totally satisfying breakfast.  If you wanted you could just fry the sausage in a pan and turn it into sausage gravy if you wanted to.

Spicy Breakfast Sausage


8 oz ground pork

1/2 tsp salt

1/2 thyme

1/2 tsp Italian Seasoning

1/2 tsp onion powder

1/4 tsp garlic powder

1/4 tsp black pepper

1/4 tsp crushed red pepper flakes

1/8 tsp fennel seeds, optional

1/8 tsp paprika

1/8 tsp cayenne pepper

1/8 tsp cinnamon

Combine all ingredients. Mix well.  Form into 3 equal size patties.  Place patties in a pan heated over medium high heat.  Cook about 3-4 minutes per side, or until no longer  pink inside.
