Sausage can be expensive to buy, but it’s easy to make at home with a bit of effort and time. However, you may find that if you have lean sausage, it will be more difficult to break into small pieces. I usually cook it, then chop it in a food mill if i want small pieces like i use as pizza toppings.
- 1 lb ground beef or lamb
- 2 teaspoons salt
- 2 teaspoons ground or leaf sage
- 1 teaspoon ground black pepper
Thaw out the ground beef or lamb, then thoroughly mix in the spices. It is best to allow this to meld at least 24 hours. Typically, i make a couple pounds at a time, then freeze it back up in 1/2 lb packages. Then just thaw out as much as needed.
