Breakfast sausage


Breakfast sausage

A breakfast sausage (or country sausage) is a type of fresh pork sausage usually served at breakfastwhere. It is not cured or smoked. It is essentially highly seasoned ground meat, so it does not keep and should be stored and handled appropriately. Variations made from pork and beef mixtures as well as poultry can now be found. There are also vegetarian varieties that use textured vegetable protein in place of meat. In America, the predominant spices used for seasoning are pepper and sage. Some breakfast sausage is flavored with ham.

Most commonly served as patties or slices from a large roll, breakfast sausage also comes in links of various lengths and diameters. It is normally fried or grilled. Some people like to pour ketchup or other condiments like maple syrup onto their breakfast sausages. Cooked breakfast sausage is also commonly mixed into egg casseroles before baking.
