Quick and Easy Sausage Links (GAPS : grain-free : Primal : gluten-free)

I made up a batch of these sausages today, and they were super tasty.  My 3-year-old finished his serving and called out "More, please!" I'm excited to have a recipe that for sausages that is so easy to make and tastes so delicious.

This recipe comes from the Beyond Grain and Dairy eCookbook by Starlene Stewart.  My notes are in RED.
Quick and Easy Sausage Links

  • 1 pound fatty ground pork (you could also use beef, chicken, turkey, separate or mixed, and you can also sneak in organ meats!) (I used grassfed ground beef.)
  • generous scoop of leftover bacon grease (Since my meat was not very fatty, I added some leftover bacon grease. This added a wonderful flavor to the sausages.) 
  • 1/2 teaspoon granulated garlic OR 1 clove garlic, crushed
  • 1 teaspoon granulated onion OR 1 Tablespoon onion, crushed
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt (I doubled the amount of salt to 1 tsp since we like our sausages nice-and-salty.) 
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon oregano
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne, optional (I left this out.)
  1. Mix all ingredients together. I used my hands to mix it all together.
  2. Form into sausage links. At this point you can refrigerate overnight so the spices can marry, or you can fry them immediately. I let mine sit for about 10 minutes before cooking them up.
  3. Fry in your favorite healthy fat until well done, turning frequently to brown on all sides, about 10 minutes. I used a 10-inch cast iron skillet. Because of the added bacon grease in my sausages, I only melted a touch of butter in the pan before adding the sausages.  A good amount of the bacon grease did melt out of the sausages as they cooked, so a splatter screen was necessary to prevent making a huge, splattery mess.
