Beef Breakfast Sausage


  • 1 pound Ground Beef
  • 2 tsp finely chopped Fresh Sage (about 10 leaves, or substitute 2 tsp dry Rubbed Sage)
  • ¼ tsp Garlic Powder
  • ½ tsp Ground Mace
  • ½ tsp salt to taste
  • 1-2 Tbsp tallow or other cooking fat for frying


  1. Combine spices with beef and mix well (I like to use my hands for this step).
  2. Form sausage into patties (I typically make 3 or 4 patties per pound).  Alternatively, you could buy sausage casings and stuff with the Sausage Stuffer attachment of your Meat Grinder.
  3. Heat tallow in a skillet over medium-high heat.
  4. Cook sausage patties for 8-10 minutes on the first side.  Flip and cook for another 7-8 minute on the second side, until fully cooked.
  5. Alternatively, place sausage patties on a cookie sheet and bake at 400F for 18-20 minutes (no need to flip mid baking).
