breakfast sausage



  • Do you have a sausage seasoning that taste similar to Jimmy Dean sausage. My son in law will only eat the JD sausage. Would like to find a seasoning with that flavor.

    @doc_craig I dont eat alot of Jimmy Deans but our #1 selling breakfast sausage seasoning is the Holly Regular Pork Sausage Seasoning and a couple of the reviews stated that it was similar (they said better) to Jimmy Deans. I do know this is my favorite PSS we have, it has a great taste!

    Anyone else have an opinion?

    You’ll never 100% replicate commercial processed meats sooooo… Start with Walton’s breakfast mix or another brand’s premix and go from there. The dominate flavor in breakfast sausage is sage. If it’s not “strong” enough, just add some additional sage to one of the premixes. Or get a maple flavored in you like the combo taste.



  • Okay will give it a try, thanks



  • I really like the MRT Sausage & Meatloaf seasoning.



  • @doc_craig I’ve used the Holly Regular breakfast sausage seasoning and friends & family love it in links or patties.
    I’d recommend mixing up a 1lb batch per the directions and fry up a patty and then adjust up or down from there.

    I’ve got written down in my notes that I liked the flavor at 10 grams of seasoning per lb, that would make the 1/2lb pkg that it comes in season 22.4lbs of meat (the directions would be 8.96 grams per lb)

    FYI - I thinks it’s always a good idea to fry up a test patty before you commit to stuffing or packaging, and for some reason I find that you always want the patty to taste a slight bit saltier than you really want if you’re making links, I find that the perfect patty usually makes kind of a boring link, dunno why tho…

    Best of luck!

    I too have found that when I make patties they should taste a little too salty. After stuffing them in hot casings and smoking they always taste perfect. If the pre-stuffed patty tastes just right, then I know the stuffed/smoked sausage will be too light on the sausage.

    I don’t have an explanation either. Maybe Austin or John will have an explanation unless it is just you and I that experience this 😉

    @ndkoze There is no question you are correct, they can sometimes taste different because of differences in the cook cycle. We don’t have an exact scientific answer for you but this is what we believe. With Patties generally you are cooking faster at a higher temperature and that tends to draw more moisture out, that can do two things. First, it is going to bring more salt to the surface of the meat so you will get more salt with the initial bite, which is what your mouth immediately registers and sticks with you more. Second, the more moisture you remove from the patty the strong the remaining salt taste is going to be.

    Let us know if anyone has a differing opinion.

    Oh… I ground the pork fat and the venison at the same time. 2 chunks of venison, 1 chunk of pork, back and forth…

    Yes… sure cure and sure gel binder. The venison and pork fat were both still partially frozen when I ground them. First through the large course plate, then again through the small plate. (Not sure of sizes, but these are the plates i normally use for summer sausage). I probably should have put the meat back in the freezer before seasoning but i was pressed for time. I mixed by hand for 14 or 15 minutes. I also think I might have added to much water. The video said 2 quarts for wild game 2 pints for fatty pork. I put in 1 quart and about another cup. I mixed until it got tacky and then mixed some more. The meat seemed soupy to me but the video said that would be ok.
    The shriveling occurred before I bumped the temp up. I was using a digital thermometer with a probe, when the temp stalled for a couple hours, I suspected the temp might be reading inaccurately so I opened the door to confirm with a dial thermometer. The digital was accurate but the sausage was already shriveling.
    Another thing that bothered me was the casings… these had perforations for some reason. I e never used perforated casings before and seemed like I was losing a pot of moisture through them. Did I have the wrong casings? The other fibrous casings in the catalog said you were supposed to poke them anyway.
