🐷 Purchasing Pork for Sausage Making

Now, I’m not an expert sausage maker. I can’t compete with “mom và pop” or with any of those big experts. But I do lượt thích to try my hand occasionally at putting together just the right combination of spices for pan sausage.

Keep in mind that if you’re using ground pork from your local grocery store, it will probably have a much different texture from a commercially produced sausage. That’s because the grocery store ground pork is usually a lot leaner which will produce a more dense patty.

If you want yours to lớn be more moist, juicy, & tender, then tell the butcher what you’re making and ask for fattier ground pork. A good store will grind it for you with a higher fat content. You want between 25 and 40% total fat. The only real way to lớn know the cấp độ of fat that you lượt thích is khổng lồ experiment. I’d advise you to lớn start with about 30% fat & work up or down from there. & do remember that a lot of the fat renders out when cooked.

Simply combine all the ingredients in a large bowl.Blend everything together thoroughly. I find it easier to lớn just take off my rings và get my hands in there to mix it all up. However, you can also bởi vì the mixing in a stand mixer on low speed.Once everything is well combined, it’s a good idea to chạy thử the seasonings. Make a small quarter-sized patty and cook it until it’s done all the way through. Taste and adjust the seasonings accordingly.

You can cook the sausage immediately, or shape it into a roll, wrap it in plastic wrap và store it in the refrigerator until you’re ready. I lượt thích to make it up the night before and then cook it the next morning.

Fry in an ungreased skillet over medium to lớn medium-high heat until cooked through. You may need a little bit of oil in the pan if you’ve used leaner ground pork.

🔀 Variations

My recipe is very mild and simply flavored but you can adjust the seasonings to lớn suit your own tastes. Starting with the basic recipe, make a quarter-sized patty, fry it in a skillet & have a taste. From there adjust the seasonings a little at a time until you find the combination you lượt thích best.Additional seasonings you might want khổng lồ include: garlic powder (start with 1/4 teaspoon), ground rosemary (start with 1/2 teaspoon), dried thyme (start with 50% teaspoon), and/or brown sugar (start with 2 teaspoons).

🕒 How to lớn Make Ahead

Making breakfast sausage ahead is really simple! set all the ingredients and shape into either one long roll or size it into 8 patties. Wrap well in plastic wrap & store in the refrigerator for up to four days before cooking. When ready khổng lồ cook, simply remove it from the refrigerator và place it directly in the pan.

To store freshly made sausage, wrap it tightly in plastic wrap và keep it in the refrigerator for up khổng lồ four days. Lớn store cooked sausage, allow it lớn cool completely và then store it in a container or ziptop bag in the fridge for 2-3 days.
Can I substitute ground turkey for ground pork in the sausage mix?

You can easily substitute ground turkey, or ground chicken, for the pork in this sausage mixture. One word of caution, ground turkey is quite a bit leaner than pork so be aware that cooked turkey sausage may be quite a bit drier than pork sausage. You will also need to địa chỉ oil or butter lớn the pan when cooking it.
