The idea for this sausage came about when my sister Terra mentioned the sausage logs from Smart & Final that my mother used to buy and serve to us as kids decades ago. We ate a lot of it. I’m sure my mother thought it was an easy and affordable breakfast staple that you buy, cut While frozen and pan fry! Done! I liked the sausage for the simple fact that it was sage heavy for my young palatte –albeit likely from artificial flavorings. Terra didn’t think so much of it because she could taste plastic flavor from the packaging that seeped through into the meat: YUCK! Although I don’t recall the plastic flavor in the meat myself, these days I am trying my best to steer clear of eating out of plastics and other packaging that contains toxins and harmful chemicals. That being said, sourcing clean meats (and other ingredients) is key! For this sausage recipe I recommend sustainably raised lamb such as U.S. Wellness Meats ground lamb. If you’re looking for a tasty compliment to this try is with roasted asparagus — yes, even for breakfast!
