Homemade Breakfast Sausage

Homemade Breakfast Sausage | The Gluten-Free Homemaker

I don’t eat pork very often, but I really enjoy bacon and breakfast sausage.  However, I don’t like all the ingredients in processed meats and I like to eat pork that comes from farm raised, grazing pigs.

This homemade breakfast sausage is the perfect solution for me.  I can pick up ground pork from my local Mom’s Organic Market and make my own delicious sausage.  All it takes is a little seasoning added to the pork.  There’s no need for preservatives!

Feel free to adjust the seasoning to taste and try different herbs or use fresh ones.

  1. Linda, these photos are absolutely gorgeous and your sausage sounds delicious! Hopefully, more folks will learn how easy it is to make one’s own sausage and control ingredients–including spices, right? 😉 Thanks for sharing, dear.


  2. We don’t eat pork and Bob is allergic to sage so I like to make my own sausage with ground turkey and sweet basil. I also add a few red pepper flakes for heat. I agree homemade is the perfect solution for those of use with dietary restrictions and preferences.

  3. Would this work with ground turkey using the same ingredients or would I need to make changes?

  4. Will a gluten free diet help with weight loss?
    I can’t wait to try the recipe; I’m gluten intolerant. My hubby is a diabetic and is way to heavy.

    Thank you,

    PS We don’t eat spicy foods.

    • Hi Nancy. No, a gluten free diet will not help with weight loss if you substitute gluten free breads, pasta, cookies, etc. for regular ones. If you cut gluten containing foods out of your diet and don’t replace them with similar gf foods, then yes, you might lose weight.

        I agree With Linda! It is possible but you can’t just sub gluten free breads and such and lose weight. However I have lost 50 lbs since going GF but I also don’t eat conventional dairy, I eat low healthy carbs( somewhat paleo) I do occasionall indulge in taste Gluten Free goodies but only for special occasions. I am now finally starting to delve into making my own to take to parties etc. that way I have total control over what I put in it!

    You should be able to use turkey because you can buy turkey sausage in the store
