Homemade Breakfast Sausage

Directions

  1. In a large bowl, combine ground pork, sage, salt, pepper, thyme, garlic powder, and onion powder. Mix ingredients thoroughly with a wooden spoon.
  2. To form patties, divide the meat mixture into six equal portions. Shape each portion into a ball and flatten with the palm of your hand into 3 1/2-inch wide patties.
  3. Heat an extra-large skillet over medium heat until hot. Place the patties in the skillet and cook about 8 minutes or until browned and 165 degrees F in the center, tuning once halfway through cooking. Serve hot.
