    Jimmy Dean Sausage Copycat Recipe

    1 lb ground pork (works well with TVP, ground chicken or ground turkey, too)
    1 tsp salt
    1/2 tsp parsley
    1/4 tsp black pepper
    1/4 tsp thyme
    14 tsp crushed red pepper (use more if you like it hot)
    1/4 tsp coriander
    1/8 tsp oregano
    1/8 tsp rubbed sage (use 1/4 tsp if you like sage sausage)

    Mix and refrigerate overnight.
    If you are using TVP and want to make up a bunch of patties to freeze, add 2 eggs and 1/4 c. flour. Refrigerate at least 2 hours. Fry in oil, freeze on cookie sheets then bag.

    Thank you! I have tried sausage spice blends but they never taste right. I will give this one a try! I'm surprised there isn't fennel in it. Fennel seed is the "sausage" flavor we're used to.

    Fennel is the ITALIAN sausage flavor that we are used to.
    I don't think I have ever had breakfast sausage with fennel in it. But those may be the sausages that I don't like. Fennel is like an anise/licorice flavor. I hate black licorice, so I notice that flavor right away.

    Thanks, I thought it was some kind of meat substitute but wasn't sure what it stood for. I actually have a cookbook with a recipe for Textured Vegetable Protein...

    My breakfast sausage recipe doesn't have fennel. But it does have lots of sage and some brown sugar:)
