Homemade Fresh Breakfast Sausage

Homemade Fresh Breakfast Sausage

You’d think, after writing an entire cookbook about it, we’d be fresh out of breakfast for dinner ideas. That, or we’d be completely and utterly sick of breakfast for dinner in any way, shape, or form.

Not so.

Turns out, pretty much the second we turned in the final manuscript, we thought of something else that would have been perfect in the book. And then another something. And another. Breakfast for Dinner is one of those themes that is truly limitless, and I think we could easily fill three more books (alas, sorry to break it to you, but there are no plans for a sequel at the moment).

Rest assured, those ideas are not going to waste. We’re excited to be contributing a series of never-before-seen breakfast for dinner recipes for KitchenAid’s Kitchenthusiast™ blog in the coming months, starting with this mouthwatering breakfast sausage smorgasbord.

We put our KitchenAid® Food Grinder Attachment to good use, grinding a beautiful cut of pork into a light and flavorful breakfast sausage that can be used in a myriad of ways, including a manly breakfast sausage and potato pizza (Taylor’s favorite), breakfast sausage tacos, and egg and sausage sandwiches on fluffy buttermilk biscuits.

And you know what the real beauty of these breakfast for dinner recipes is?

You can totally eat them for breakfast or lunch, too.

    I have been considering the meat grinder, I’m a polish girl and feel like I need to make some sausage!  On a scale of 1 to 10, how difficult do you find clean up?  I used to work in a food micro lab so I’m terrified of doing a raw meat  for other people preparation.  Horror stories.

    Still love sausages, especially the ones you mixed up for kitchen aid

      Hold on, let me ask Taylor. He’s the one who actually cleans it (haha). Everything but the metal plates can go in the dishwasher, which is nice. He uses a toothpick to remove any chunks left in the plates, then throws the rest in the dishwasher.

      We really like knowing what goes into our ground meat, rather than who knows how many different animals in one package…

    Looks delicious! I have made sausage a few times using my KitchenAid food grinder too, and it was great! I have a ton of recipes in my cookbook “The Mixer Bible,” but since I don’t have the Kitchenaid sausage making attachment, for some reason I thought that I couldn’t make them. A few years later, it finally occurred to me that I could make the sausage in bulk form – duh!!! lol.

    Hi, I love your blog!! 
    one question: i live in austria and we cannot get liquid pektin, do you have an idea what i could use instead?

      Which recipe are you referring to? Any pectin should be fine for a jam recipe, I’d just modify the process to follow the instructions that comes with whatever pectin you use (for example, some call to add the pectin at the beginning, other kinds call for it at the end).
