Day 12: Homemade Breakfast Sausage

Every packet of sausage or bacon I’ve picked up in the last 12 days has sugar in it. It’s depressing. And I wanted a good breakfast this morning. It is my favorite day. 

So I made my own. 

And it is amazing. 

This breakfast hash is something I’ll be making for a long time. After two weeks of just eggs and egg muffins, I wanted something of substance. 

For the homemade sausage, you need:

  • 1 pound ground pork
  • 2 teaspoons poultry seasoning
  • 1/8 teaspoon allspice
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne
  • 1/2 teaspoon fennel seeds
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/8 teaspoon red pepper flakes 
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • Coconut oil to help with browning 

Combine all spices and stir. Using your hands, mix into ground pork until well combined.

This will make your dreams come true. It has just the right amount of kick. If you like it spicy, add more red pepper flakes. If you like it less spicy, only use 1/8 teaspoon cayenne. 

I browned my sausage and set it aside. 

Then I sautéed baby tri-colored potatoes, onion and jalapeño until soft. Add the sausage back into the pan. 

In a separate pan, fry two eggs in coconut oil. I like my eggs runny for hash. 

Plate the potato and sausage hash, top with the fried eggs and finish with compliant salsa and guacamole.  

I can’t wait to tell you about tonight’s dinner, but it requires its own post so I can share the details of making it. 

How’s your weekend? What did you have for breakfast?
