    Hello everyone! It's been forever...
    I found this recipe some months ago and it's a keeper for me. Ground Italian sausage is $6 a pound around here, but I can get some regular sausage at Aldi's for $1.99 a pound that has hardly any fat and really good flavor.

    To your pound of breakfast sausage, add:

    1 tsp fennel seeds (this is absolutely imperative, this is what makes it Italian sausage)
    1 tsp dried basil
    1 tsp dried oregano
    1 tsp garlic powder
    1 tsp dried parsley
    1/2 tsp onion powder
    1/2 tsp dried rosemary
    1/2 tsp black pepper
    pinch of red pepper flakes (more if you like it hot)

    That's it. Mix it up to use immediately or let it sit in the frig for a couple hours to help blend the flavors.

    Thanks! I was smiling when I was reading some of the posts. Remembering names, etc! I was surprised that I could come up with the correct password to this acct. Ha! But I do need to change my profile, I see.
    Anyway, my bunch is happy with the recipe, I hope you are, too.

    Thanks Marianne. I think Bkfst and Italian sausage are the same price where I shop. Now, I gotta check that out. I can buy my spices bulk, so hardly any cost involved in the spices.

    Thanks!
    There are a lot of new names, but a lot of names that I recognize, too. I'm glad the community is still perking right along.

    Absolutely. I can buy a whole bag full of spice for less than the price of a tiny little jar at the grocer. And the spices at my NLC are very fresh. No comparison.
