Homemade breakfast sausage made with ground pork and seasonings. Great cooked in crumbles for biscuits and gravy, or in patties for breakfast sandwiches or eggs benedict. I like to premake a large batch and freeze the patties, then just take out a few the night before.

This was great! I didn't have anise seeds so I used extra fennel. And used poultry seasoning instead of sage as I added this sausage to a Rice and Sausage Dressing for Christmas dinner. I put the herbs and spices in my mortar and pestle to crush the seeds. I will make this again and try it for breakfast, but with less red pepper flakes for the kids. :)

Love this recipe. I used all fennel seeds as well, really delicious. The basic recipe that you posted is excellent, I did add a little marjoram, just because. I used 1/2 tsp of the hot pepper.
