This homemade breakfast sausage recipe is incredibly easy to make. We make our own breakfast sausage to avoid corn additives for our family’s health. And this recipe is super tasty!
My family has gone through food allergy testing—and can I tell you it’s caused quite a bit of change in our already-altered diet. I thought we were eating a pretty clean, healthy, whole-foods diet, but found out different when two of my kiddos and my husband all tested positive for a corn allergy.
Corn allergies have got to be one of the most difficult food allergies to deal with. Why? Because corn is in everything! You can’t even purchase breakfast sausage that is corn-free. (Seriously? It’s sausage. How could you screw it up?)
I thought I found corn-free sausage.
✔️ No corn syrup.
✔️ No corn starch.
✔️ No MSG.
❌ Dextrose…hold up, that’s a form of corn sugar!
Back to the drawing board.
Make your own! Homemade breakfast sausage is easy.
In our sleepy little town doesn’t have a Whole Foods or a Trader Joes, but that’s alright. I found it’s extremely easy to make your own homemade breakfast sausage. My guess is, it is probably much cheaper than purchasing those specialty meats too.
Homemade Breakfast Sausage (Recipe)
- Put all of the ingredients in a large bowl.
- Mix together thoroughly.
- You can then use the sausage any way you'd use ground sausage purchased from the store - cook it now or freeze it for later use. You can make sausage patties, ground sausage, or use it in your favorite recipes. (Make some sausage patties the easy way and keep them in the refrigerator for breakfasts).
