Like other reviewers, I was in search of a recipe to make breakfast sausage since I cannot have many of the additives (mostly MSG) in commercially-prepared sausage. We moved and I could no longer find sausage without additives. Even if you *can* eat commercial sausage, DON'T - make this and you'll never make anything else!!! I used 1/2 ground pork and 1/2 fresh ground turkey (better texture than frozen). This cuts the fat content, and it's still so great! I made the recipe as stated, but next time I'll cut down on the sage and increase the red pepper to our own liking. My family doesn't want to eat anything else now! The first Sunday I cooked the sausage for breakfast, my husband said he just kept thinking about how good it was all during church service! If you haven't tried Lee Fogle's Italian Sausage recipe - YOU MUST! It's also fantastic! THANK YOU!!!!

Have been fumbling around for the best sausage recipe. Wow! Just made this recipe and tried some left over scraps. Substituted 1 1/2 tsp fennel seed for the clove (which I did not have). Rolled the sausage out to about 3/8" between two layers of waxed paper and plastic wrap (to protect my wooden roller). Cut out rounds with a three inch biscuit cutter. Reroll and cut out until only a few scraps are left. It made 18 rounds with some scraps for tasting. Oh Yum!

This recipe was soo easy and tasted pretty good! I didn't have marjoram or cloves and all I had was some ground sage and the Italian Spices (which contained a bit of rosemary, marjoram, sage etc) So I improved with 1 1/2 tsp of ground sage and 1 tsp of the Italian Spices. I thought it was a bit too sweet (even though I like sweet sausages). Although I think that the sausage tastes better after a few days in the freezer then cooked. I definitely recommend this recipe but I'd give it a 2-3 days in the freezer to set (just make sure to make it into patties before you freeze it, makes a better of a time than defrosing a hunk of meat.) But overall Great recipe Lee! Thank you very much for sharing it ^_^
