We’ve been using a lot of sausage lately. I normally buy the Jimmy Dean, gluten free version. It is usually about $4.00 for 1 pound. Rather expensive and the quality of the pork used is probably questionable. Also, seeing that I am working on recipes that I can make both AIP and conventional…Or yummy enough for my conventional husband to enjoy…I decided to make my own!
The great thing about this recipe is that you can make it your own! You can experiment with your own spices. I happen to have some sage in the fridge that I’m hoping to add to the next batch. If you’re not AIP and avoiding things like paprika, I bet you could make this spicy. Have fun with this and if you try out a great combo, come back and share or share a picture with me on Facebook!
Here’s what you’ll need:
- 1 pound of Ground Pork
- 1 Tablespoon Oregano
- 1 Tablespoon Marjoram
- 1 Tablespoon Parsley
- 1/2 Teaspoon Garlic Powder
- 1/2 Teaspoon Sea Salt (Or Pink Himalayan Salt)
Are you ready for how easy this is?
Throw everything in a food processor. Blend until all spices and meat is well mixed. Tah dah!
Use it for your recipes. I’ve used it for Sweet Potato Apple Hash from the Paleo Parents (Recipe Review was blogged a while back with link to the original.) or with scrambled eggs and sausage. My husband has complained before about sausage that wasn’t marked spicy, being too hot. He is also very sensitive to salt. He actually really liked this sausage. Another great thing? I saved money by buying ground pork and making it myself. I found a great deal on clearance for 2ish pounds of ground pork for $5. That’s $2.50 a pound compared to the usual $4! Plus, you can also personalize this sausage and make it your own.
I hope you’ll try this out whether you’re AIP or not. Make it your own and save some money! What’s better than that? I’m sending you yummy, customizable sausage from my kitchen to yours. I hope you’ll come back next time and see what I can show you how to make yourself.
