Homemade Breakfast Sausage Recipe

This is my take on the Mcdonald’s big breakfast meal.


1 kilo ground pork. Don’t use lean meat or else the sausages will be dry and less flavorful.
1/2 tbsp honey
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
1 tbsp dried sage                  
1/4 tsp dried thyme
1/8 tsp cayenne pepper

The superstar here is the dried sage. I ate Mcdo breakfast sausage a day after I had my homemade version. The taste is close but it would have been better if I added more sage.

To make the patties, use a 1/4-cup measuring spoon to scoop and the flat side of a 1-cup measuring cup to flatten.

Just mix all the ingredients, make patties and fry. That is it. I wanted to pair my breakfast sausages with scrambled eggs and pancakes. Because we do our groceries every Sunday, when Saturday morning rolls in, our little egg-a-holic has already eaten most of our eggs.

Check out pancake! I finally learned the secret to perfect pancakes. Please see my post on my disastrous first batch of teddy bears and hello kitties.

Apparently, the blotchiness is caused by the difference in the surface tension and the heat conductivity of the metal pan and the oil. Don’t ask me to explain because I already forgot the complex explanation and I don’t really care. So long as the technique works, I am happy.
First, put enough oil to cover the surface of a cold pan. Heat until you see some smoke. Remove/transfer the oil. Yes, all of it. Lightly wipe the surface with using paper napkin. And now, you are ready to make some yummy spot-free pankekes!

Happy Monday!
