Spicy Sausage

I love sausage with scrambled eggs, in soup, or just by itself. When we became more aware of the ingredients in the foods we were eating here in our home, I could not find sausage without sugar and added stuff. So, I experimented and came up with a "real food" version.


What you need:
 2 pounds ground beef
 2 tsp. ground sage
 2 tsp. ground garlic
 1-2 Tbs. crushed red pepper flakes
 2 Tbs. maple syrup (grade B)
 1 1/2 tsp. sea salt
 1/2 tsp. pepper
 Ghee

What you do:
 Mix all ingredients, except ghee, in large bowl
 Form into patties. (I usually get about 16 patties; two ounces per patty.)
 Heat ghee in large skillet and cook patties approximately 3 minutes per side. Do not overcook.
 Freeze left overs in freezer in glass containers.
 Enjoy!
