    I have been playing with breakfast sausage recipes on and off for several months.  I have several that I like but nothing that the family really thinks is great.  Every time I try something it gets compared to Johnsonville breakfast sausage.  Has anyone seen or used a recipe that is similar in taste to that sausage.  I noticed that they use corn syrup and also some lemon juice powder.  Any suggestions would be much appreciated.

  2. there is a clone recipe around for johnsonville brats len poli or something like that

    Goliath and Voodoochile, thank you for the responses.  Unfortunately, I am trying to find the recipe for Johnsonville Breakfast sausage not brats or Jimmy Dean.  I have searched everywhere that I can think of on line and it just does not appears to be out there.  But I am going to keep looking and experimenting until I can get closer.


  5. Wazoo, if you want to you might post your recipe and people can comment as to possible changes to help? Are you able to note which flavors are missing or might be less/more pronounced than they should in comparison with the Johnsonville ones? Of course putting your recipe up is up to you, but I'm thinking it might help get suggestions as to making changes to get what you're looking for. Good luck!

    Good idea!  I am going to compare my sausage to the Johnsonville and then see what I think is missing.  I will also post my recipe and get some comments.  I will take another run at this over the weekend.

    Johnsonville sausage is good but some of the junk they add to their sausage won't ever go into mine ! Tell your family that your sausage is au natural without the weird chemicals ![​IMG]

    Brats and breakfast sausage are considerably different recipes.
