Sure, you can go out and buy Bob Evans breakfast sausage, made from pigs who are processed through the factory farm system. Or you could make your own sausage with a pound of ground pork from a happy pig, like the ones roaming the woods at Lubbers Farm.
For seasonings, I simply add some dried sage, a dash of dried (ground) thyme, salt, and pepper to taste.
Mix it all together and form patties.
Cook in a skillet for about 10 minutes with the lid on, then continue browning on both sides, pressing meat into pan with a spatula until the juices run clear.
Isn’t it better to know what’s in your meat? (To learn about the additives allowed in processed meats in this country, check out my previous blog post: The USDA’s List of “Safe and Suitable” Ingredients for Meat.)
