  1. Combine ground meat and all other ingredients in a large bowl. Mix well until seasonings are distributed throughout the meat (using hands is perfectly fine here). Use immediately or cover and place in refrigerator for at least 1 hour to allow the flavors to mingle.

    *At this point, you can leave it covered in the refrigerator, for up to 5 days, until ready to use.

  2. Can shape into (8) 2-inch patties or leave in bulk form to use in other recipes.
  3. To cook, place skillet over medium heat (may need to add a little oil if using a lean protein). Once skillet is hot, place sausage in pan and cook until lightly brown and thoroughly cooked, about 10-15 minutes.

  4. Enjoy and never buy pre-packaged sausage again!
