Loose Country Breakfast Sausage
This sausage recipe is one of our favorites, and we didn’t even create it. A few years back we purchased a processing facility that unbeknownst to us, had a very old sausage recipe inside, procured from a traveling spice salesman. Today, we’re the only butchers to still have the rights to this special recipe, sharing it only with the family-owned spice company out of Franklin, Tennessee—where we still get all our spices from. A classic breakfast sausage that is seasoned with sage, ginger, red pepper, black pepper, and brown sugar. Since our pigs have the freedom and opportunity to use their muscles in the woods, the meat develops a deep, incredible taste.
Our sausages are made with carefully selected trim from the entire hog. We only put lean meat and back fat into our sausages, making sure to trim out all the undesirable bits (ahem, unlike some other links out there). Last step: we season them and add fresh ingredients to give that great texture and flavor. Ingredients: Pork, salt, spices, brown sugar.
The easiest way to cook loose sausage is to crumble it up into a hot pan and cook on high until golden brown. Use this sausage for a breakfast omelet / hash, or your Thanksgiving stuffing.
Not just a piece of meat
Great flavor starts in the field. At Porter Road, we partner with farmers who raise their animals on pasture, for a difference you can taste.Learn more about our process
