Wake up and smell the sausage! Deer breakfast sausage, that is. This sausage is a healthy alternative to pure pork sausage. It's leaner and meaner, but still tastes great.
Deer Breakfast Sausage - the Recipe
This is a really nice recipe for breakfast sausage. Very simple and really tasty. It's best if you trim all the fat off of the venison before it's ground. Some venison suet has a strong flavor that just doesn't agree with some people. For this breakfast of champions recipe, you need...
1 pound ground deer meat
1 pound ground pork
2 teaspoons ground sage
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon black pepper
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
Put the pork and the venison into a large bowl and mix it up. Combine the spices and seasonings, then sprinkle the mixture over the meat. Work the seasonings into the meat with your hands. Fun, isn't it?
