Breakfast Sausage Spice Blend

We love sausage, but don’t love the artificial ingredients and fillers in many brands. So instead we created a variety of sausage spice blends and use them with fresh ground meat to make our own. This blend was adapted from a recipe I found a few years ago that is delicious but relies on all fresh herbs. By creating and using a dried variety, I have the spice blend on hand whenever I’m in the mood to create breakfast sausage patties, a sausage and egg frittata or biscuits and gravy.
