Breakfast sausage is among favorite foods of the men (including the little ones) in almost every home. But how often do we wonder about their effect on our health? Sausages that we can buy in the stores are full of nitrates or nitrites and other preservatives and flavors added. So, we can’t stop asking ourselves “do we really want for our children to eat that?”
Well it’s time to make your own homemade sausage by recipe that we found for you. You can make them with beef or with pork, whatever you like better. Of course, the taste would not be the same, so maybe you decide to try both and then decide which one better tastes. We recommend beef, because of healthier nutrients in beef meat, but also less fat.
You can buy meat but and then use meat grinder if you have. Or if you won’t spend that much time on cleaning it afterwards and have no patience for it, you can just by buy ground meat for this recipe.
