Pre-encased sausage in grocery stores are often laiden with preservatives to keep flavors stable until being cooked and served at home. Why not skip the preservatives and use spices from your own pantry for freshly flavored breakfast sausage?

Our two little boys love these sausage patties for breakfast, so we do not add any heat. However, if you prefer some kick, feel free to add 1/8 tsp of cayenne or to taste.
