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
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.
