Easy Ground Beef Sausage- A Staple at Our House

We found this recipe for sausage seasoning several years ago and it has been a staple of ours ever since.  We keep it in a jelly jar in our cupboard and simply add 2 T. to 1 lb. of ground beef to make a flavorful sausage.  You could use this seasoning on any other kind of meat as well.

Sausage Seasoning

(Originally from Heavenly Homemakers)
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 1 tsp black pepper
  • 1 tsp red pepper flakes
  • 2 tsp cumin
  • 2 tsp ginger
  • 2 tsp marjoram
  • 2 tsp nutmeg
  • 2 tsp oregano
  • 4 tsp basil
  • 4 tsp sage
  • 4 tsp thyme
  • 4 tsp salt

Mix and store in an airtight container.

Use 1.5 T of seasoning per 1 lb of meat.  Add the seasoning before browning the meat. 

We usually make extra sausage to freeze.  It's great to have on hand frozen and ready to use.

We like to use this sausage in:
Scrambled eggs
Quiches
Spaghetti
Lasagna
Quesadillas
Biscuits and Gravy (recipe below)

Sausage and Gravy

(To be served over biscuits- or waffles and a fried egg as I did in the photo)

  • 1 lb homemade sausage
  • 2 T. flour
  • 2 cups milk

Heat the sausage in a pan.  Add the flour and cook for about 1 minute.  Stir in 1 cup milk and stir till thickened.  Add the other 1 cup of milk and continue to cook until thickened.  Enjoy!
