this is incredible. we didn't have all the fresh spices on hand, but i faked it using Poultry Seasoning, which is basically all of these spices only dried (McCormicks brand is what i happened to have) and it was perfect.

Holy Yum! I didn't follow the ingredient measurements exactly, but it turned out great! I like the idea of using maple syrup next time.

Loved it as written. Good to taste REAL sausage again and know exactly what is in the food I'm giving my family. To make it even better, the cost ended up being almost half of what I would have paid for the store-bought stuff. And it tastes half as good as this! Thanks.

Little too much sage and also a little spicy for us (but that's a personal taste preference). Not sure you need both cayenne and hot pepper flakes, but I would omit the cayenne in the future and cut the sage in half. Also, sausage patties are not very thick, so plan on reducing your cooking time, otherwise, you'll have dried out sausage. Overall, pretty good recipe.

This is great sausage. I quit looking for a sausage recipe after I tried this one. I don't keep fresh spices around so I used dried at half the recommended amount where fresh was called for. Yum. I make them into little meatballs and bake them. In the morning, I half or quarter a few and throw them in with potatoes and eggs.

These are awesome !! I used ground chicken because that's what I had in the freezer, and I didn't have any nutmeg so I added a little paprika. The whole family loved them! If I would've known how easy it was to make breakfast sausage I would've done it a long time ago! And love knowing what is going into my food.

I was pleasantly surprised by just how good this sausage is! My local grocery store had a pack of fresh "poultry seasoning" spices - sage, thyme and rosemary, so that worked out perfectly. I used the same amounts that the recipe called for except decreased the cayenne pepper by just a little and left out the nutmeg (I thought I had some but couldn't find it). They turned out yummy and pleasantly spicy! Also, I found that my patties browned a little quick and I wasn't sure they were cooked through, so I popped them into the oven for a few minutes at 350 degrees. I will definitely make this again!
