1504 is a great breakfast sausage seasoning!
gus4416 I am jealous. All I got out of my kids today as far as sausage making was “Ewww it smells so bad in here” when I brought everything in off the smoker.

gus4416 Bet that helper was a great assist. Glad to see young people interested in making their own food. We need more of that.
gus4416 Looks like you have a fine helper there to help with making sausages & cured meats far into your future!
That helper does not know just yet the value of what you are teaching him. Glad he is willing to learn and great looking sausage
Dr_Pain we worry about him when he comes we don’t want him to get bored now he says hey can we make sausage and it is allways yes we can
gus4416 That’s beautiful that you teach them young. Way to go.

gus4416 great to get the kids involved!
I made breakfast sausage recently using a recipe from Alton Brown at Food network. It was ok, but not the Jimmy Dean flavor I wanted. It was a bit bland, a common failing of internet recipes. I had to add 2tsp of cajun hot pepper salt seasoning, more sage, and water, to get closer.
I really want to find a good breakfast sausage recipe with raw spices listed so I know what all is in there, and that someone will swear is close to Jimmy Dean original. I just love spices, and replicating commercial flavors, so I lose a lot of enjoyment using pre-made blends. But I might have to if I can’t find a great recipe.
How would you say that blend compares to Jimmy Dean original or hot? Or Bob Evans?

@gus4416ur Your son will not realize what you have taught him until maybe the next 20 years in his life! Trust me on my comment!
I an forever grateful to my Father, born in 1925! We lost my only brother to cancer at the age of 17 in 1964, I was 8. At the age of 10 ish, Dad took me with him every day during the summer to be with him in his one man plumbing, heating, sewer and septic tank service business. Dad had an 8th grade education. Dad taught me plumbing the correct way, how to figure out how it worked, how it was built and what made it tick with common sense. He beat common sense into my head till I began to tick! Dads quote, “Son, Don’t you have any common sense? Son are you paying any attention”
Mom used to ask me how I learned to cook the way I do, I’d tell her it was her. But I was always watching and having a mind of a sponge for anyone doing their craft.
Father, my Dad, I am forever grateful that you took the time to add me into your daily life when maybe as a child my mind may have been with my friends at the lake or swimming pool.
Enough said, my old eyes are watery, BUT I meant what I said.
Your son will not realize what you have taught him until maybe the next 20 years in his life!
Thank you for passing your skills on to your children.
ps: sorry for the rant but you caught me in the moment.
