Jimmy Dean Sausage Copycat Recipe

I've been fiddling around for years trying to get this recipe "just right", and I truly believe it has "arrived"!  I'm blessed to have a local farm source to get delicious, organic, pasture raised pork and beef from... I highly recommend you seek out the best meats you can purchase for any recipe.

These breakfast sausage patties are so delicious, juicy and full of flavor!  This recipe will make 9 thick patties.

NOTE:  If you're planning to make breakfast "egg, sausage and cheese biscuits", consider making these patties a bit thinner, resulting in about 15 patties per recipe instead of 9.

*A printable recipe link can be found at the bottom of this page

What you'll need:

1 lb. ground pork
1 tsp. ground ginger
1 1/4 tsp. Kosher salt
1 1/4 tsp. ground sage
1/4 tsp. ground cayenne pepper
1 1/4 tsp. fresh ground pepper
1 1/2 Tbsp. REAL Maple Syrup
Dash Hickory smoke seasoning (optional)
1/2 tsp. garlic powder
3/4 tsp. dried parsley
1/8 tsp. dried thyme
1/4 tsp. dried coriander
1/2 tsp. dried oregano

Fat of choice for frying patties (I prefer a tasty bacon fat)


Mix all ingredients together in a mixing bowl... go ahead and use your fingers to get it nicely incorporated!

Heat a heavy skillet over med to med-high heat, and add a thin layer of your fat of choice.

Form desired number of patties into flat discs.  

Slowly brown on both sides until beautifully golden and cooked through.


Recipe Suggestions:

These are delightful served up alongside a nice stack of homemade pancakes, "real" french toast or farm fresh eggs....or maybe you could crumble this up and made a yummy egg casserole to feed a group...OR, you could make some flaky homemade biscuits, top with a cooked egg, your favorite cheese and a juicy sausage patty... oh yum!  I'm getting hungry just typing this!
