    This is breakfast sausage made with thanks to all on here,

    but in particular to Pops for the recipe.

    It's a little better than last time. IMHO  [the post]

      This is what I started with, pork loin from BJ's.

    Cut two pounds [ ok I'm a coward ] into some kind of cubes definitely not 

    the prescribed one inch.  

    Put it into the freezer, let it get real good and cold.


    Working on the grinding, used medium plate.

    After the fry test, no picture, I forgot.

    Momma wanted me to put it through the fine plate, so I did.

    But- - - - - I forgot to put it back in the freezer, my my my

    what a mess.

    Don't do that.

    The fry test said, DANG, that's good.

    Not as fatty as normal breakfast sausage, but very good.

    Flattened it out pretty well, then used a biscuit cutter to make


    Then back into the freezer, so they would keep their shape

    when I vac bagged them.

    Put wax paper between them and vacked 'em.

    Ready to go back into the freezer. 

    Next time, casings.

    Thanks for looking

    Great job, Ed!

    I use an old olive jar to cut my patties.

    Never have stuffed & linked breakfast sausage, guess we just like the patties.

    Sure would like to see some fried up with a couple of eggs & an English muffin!

    Ed, great looking breakfast sausage!      I am going to make some with pork lion too, but I'm going to add a little fat from a butt I made sausage with recently.    I'm shooting for about 10 to 12 percent fat.
