Preparation time:
– Preparation time: 30 minutes
– Cooking time: 20 minutes
– Total time: 50 minutes

– 1 pound ground pork
– 1 teaspoon salt
– 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
– 1/2 teaspoon dried sage
– 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
– 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
– 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
– 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
– 1/4 teaspoon onion powder
– 1/4 teaspoon paprika
– 1/4 teaspoon brown sugar
– 1/4 cup cold water
– Natural hog casings (optional)

– In a large bowl, mix together the ground pork, salt, black pepper, sage, thyme, cayenne pepper, nutmeg, garlic powder, onion powder, paprika, and brown sugar. Use your hands to thoroughly combine the ingredients.
– Add the cold water to the mixture and continue mixing until the water is fully incorporated and the mixture is sticky and cohesive.
– If using hog casings, rinse them under cold water and allow them to soak in a bowl of cold water for at least 30 minutes prior to stuffing.
– Divide the sausage mixture into 8-10 equal portions, depending on how large you want your sausage links to be.
– If using hog casings, slide one casing over the nozzle of a sausage stuffer or a piping bag. Push the sausage mixture into the casing, using your hands to gently guide the casing off the nozzle as the sausage fills it. Continue filling the casing until you reach the desired length, then tie off the end. Repeat with the remaining sausage mixture and casings.
– If not using casings, shape the sausage mixture into patties or logs.
– Preheat a large skillet over medium heat. Once hot, add the sausage links or patties and cook for 4-5 minutes per side, or until browned and cooked through.
– Serve hot and enjoy your homemade breakfast sausage links!
