Breakfast Sausage

Karen Crossland


Ok, my family loves sausage. I used to end up having to buy about 2-3 packs of the bulk sausage in order for them to have enough for a meal.So I figured that I could make it better, and a larger quantity for a cheaper price.Oh boy was I right! I always have all the seasonings for this on hand, so I just have to buy the ground meat and prepare it. I usually buy large packs of the meat, make up the sausage, cook some and place the rest into the freezer.That way I have it when I need it.

To freeze, just make your patties and place wax paper or plastic wrap between them, so they do not stick together.Put them into a freezer bag and place in the freezer.
