Bacon Breakfast Sausage
1 lb. Ground Pork or Pork Butt, diced into 1/4" pieces
1/2 lb. Bacon Fat Back, diced into 1/4" pieces
3 tsp. Kosher Salt
2 tsp. Black Pepper, freshly ground
2 tsp. Fresh Sage Leaves, finely chopped
2 tsp. Fresh Thyme Leaves, finely chopped
1/2 tsp. Fresh Rosemary Leaves, finely chopped
1/2 tsp. Fresh Marjoram, finely chopped
1/2 tsp. Ground Nutmeg
1/2 tsp. Cayenne Pepper
1 tsp. Red Pepper Flakes, crushed
In a large bowl, combine pork with all other ingredients, cover, and chill in the refrigerator for at least 1 hour (or overnight for best flavor).
If grinding your own sausage, use the fine blade of a meat grinder and pass the pork and bacon mixture through once.
Either form into patties or push through the small tube of a sausage stuffer to form links. When ready to cook, start the Z Grill grill on Smoke with the lid open for 4-5 minutes to establish the fire. Close the lid and turn the temperature setting up to High. Allow the grill to preheat for 10-15 minutes.
Place the links or patties directly on the grill grate and cook for 10-15 minutes, flipping once, until an internal thermometer reads 175 degrees F.
Remove from the grill and serve immediately. Enjoy!
