Breakfast Sausage Sticks

Hubby is very picky about his sausage, and he said these were the best of this type he's ever had. I'm sorry I don't have a picture, but we've been having camera problems lately. They look like the Brown n Serve frozen sausages, but taste better!


1 pound ground pork
1 tsp. sage
1 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. pepper
1/8 tsp. savory
dash of cayenne pepper
pinch of cloves
1 tsp. honey (optional)
1-2 Tbsp. lard or bacon grease for frying


Combine dry ingredients in a medium glass bowl. Rub with your fingers to crush and thoroughly mix. Add ground pork and mix well with your hands. Add optional honey and mix through. Heat 8 inch skillet over medium-low heat. Form sausage into small link-shaped sticks. Saute until browned and cooked through, turning at least twice to brown all sides.

You can partially cook these ahead of time and freeze for a quick breakfast, lunch or dinner in the future. Just them out of the freezer and brown before serving.


  1. Thank you for posting this. I have yet to find "The" sausage recipe that I am happy with. I'll have to try this.

  2. I'm so glad you posted this! I am always on the lookout for toddler friendly grain free recipes. This would be great for meals or for snacks. Thanks!

  3. Sierra's got a great breakfast sausage patty recipe on the blog too. It has different spices, so it's worth a try, if you don't like this one.

  4. These were so good, taste just like breakfast sausage from the store! Thanks!
