We eat a lot of sausage in this house. My son loves it with his breakfast, we use it on our paleo pizzas and sometimes I’ll have a piece when I need a little protein for a snack.
If you read labels carefully, most sausage contains at least one form of sugar and some type of vegetable oil. Even at Whole Foods, their house made sausages contain canola oil. I’ve asked about the quantity and they tell me it’s just used to toast the spices, but I’ve never been able to actually look at a recipe or a nutrition panel. Result: I pass.
They always have plain ground pork, which I buy every week. I add in my own dried spices and voila! We have our own sausage made to our tastes and minus all the sugar and vegetable oils.
Just dump your ground meat and spices in a bowl, mix with your hands, shape into patties, lay between parchment and freeze for whenever you need it. If you want to lower the fat content a little, use half ground turkey or chicken. There are so many spices that no one will notice.
If you leave out the cayenne, black pepper and paprika, this recipe is totally autoimmune protocol compliant!
