You’ll never buy them in a store again! And the spice possibilities are endless but here is 1 version. This recipe made 50 sausage rounds ( each about 2 inches in diameter ) so we’ll be freezing them for upcoming weekend breakfasts 🙂 the kids love them and I have to hide them from Mike lol.
2 pounds of ground pork
Mix together the following spices and then hand mix them well into the pork
2 tsp. dried ground sage
2 tsp salt
1 tsp ground black pepper
1/4 tsp dried marjoram
1/8 tsp red pepper flakes
1 TBsp brown sugar
Pinch of cloves
After mixed well, form into balls and flatten thin in a frying pan. Fry at medium heat until cooked through. Don’t forget to flip them
The possibilities for spice mixs are endless, just remember – sage and marjoram are key and ya gotta have a little sugar and salt but try different peppercorns, sugars, spices with heat… so fun 🙂
I keep meaning to post these …. Completely random but yA gotta do these!
1. Homemade Laundry Soap
Mikes mother taught this to me and I’ve been using it ever since ! Less than 7 cents a load!!!
Basically 2 parts Borax
And 1 part Laundry Soda
And I add some Lavender Essential Oil
So 2 cups of borax and 1 cup of soda – 6-7 drops of essential oil
I make about 3-4 times this amount and keep it in a container on the washing machine. You only need 2 tablespoons per load 😄
2. Your Own Bacon!!!! So easy
Get some sliced pork belly – super easy to find…. If yA go to a market – ask your fav butcher -!hut superstore always has it.
We had a friends Dad raise a pig for us last year and had a bunch on our freezer.
Basically all you have to do is lay out the slices in a baking dish. Mix up 2 Tblsp sugar and 1 Tblsp of salt with 2 cups of warm water and a few shakes of liquid smoke – the second time we made it we also added 2 Tblsp of maple syrup. Let the pork belly sit in the brine for a couple of days and then cook it up….. Holy jumpins it’s good!!!!
Now go make some !!!
