Homemade Breakfast Sausage
Prep time
Cook time
Total time
Serves: 8
  • 1 - 1.5 lb Ground Pork
  • 1 tsp Kosher Salt
  • 1 tsp Black Pepper
  • ½ tsp Dried Sage
  • ½ tsp Dried Thyme
  • 1 Tbs Brown Sugar
  • ¼ tsp Cayenne Pepper
  • ½ tsp Red Pepper Flakes
  • 1 Tbs Mustard Powder
  1. Preheat oven to 400°
  2. Combine all ingredients in a big bowl until it's one big mixture - think meatloaf.
  3. Divide mixture into 8 equal portions (mine are about 2.5 oz each) and form into patties
  4. Place patties on a sheet pan and cook for 10 minutes, flip the patties and cook for an additional 10 minutes.
  5. Test for doneness and enjoy!
  6. You can also cook these on the stove top in skillet.

Buttermilk Biscuits
  • 3 Cups Flour
  • 4 tsp Baking Powder
  • 1 tsp Salt
  • 1 Tbsp Sugar
  • 5 Tbs Butter
  • 3 Tbs Vegetable Shortening
  • 1⅓ Cup Buttermilk
  1. Preheat oven to 450°
  2. Mix flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and sugar in a large bowl
  3. Cut in cold butter and shortening with a fork, your fingers, or a pastry cutter until you get pea sized chunks of flour/butter/shortening
  4. Pour in buttermilk and mix to combine. The mixture will be clumpy kind of like dry cookie dough.
  5. Turn dough out onto lightly floured surface and bring together into a dough - being careful not to overwork the dough.
  6. Pat dough out into a rectangle that is about ½ an inch thick and cut into biscuits. I cut them into squares because I didn't want to get out the biscuit cutters and reform the dough but you can cut rounds if you'd like.
  7. Place on greased sheet pan and put into the oven for 12 - 15 minutes. Watch them at the end and pull them out when they are golden brown and delicious.

Tips and TricksTips and Tricks

Freezing is not necessary. Eat as many fresh sausage biscuits as you want!

Feed the FreezerFeed the Freezer

So you’ve made the sausage and biscuits and put them together into a delicious sausage biscuit.  Assuming there are any left here’s what’s next…

  • Wrap Sausage Biscuits individually in aluminum foil and freeze.
  • The night before you want to enjoy a sausage biscuit, take one out of the freezer and place it in the refrigerator to thaw.
  • Place wrapped and thawed biscuit in a 400° oven and cook for 30 minutes until heated through.

No time to reheat in the oven?

  • Remove thawed sausage biscuit from aluminum foil and wrap in a paper towel.
  • Microwave on high for 50 seconds until heated through.  Some sort of witchcraft in the paper towel keeps the biscuit from getting that “microwaved bread” texture.  This is the method I use since I get up at 5:45 in the morning.

Forgot to put the biscuit in the fridge the night before?

  • Remove thawed sausage biscuit from aluminum foil and wrap in a paper towel.
  • Microwave on high for 75 seconds until heated through.
