My hubby is enslaved to this recipe. We finish eating 1 portion and he swiftly asks for more

For years, I bought breakfast sausage at the store. I thought that there was some magical list of ingredients that would make it impossible to make at home. If I know how easy it was to make the recipe below at home, I would have tried years ago! Now I just whip up breakfast southern pork breakfast sausage once a month, making the batch large enough to freeze so I always have some on hand.
I never bother with stuffing my sausage into links because it's so much easier to form them into patties. The patties make excellent sides of sausage and are perfect for breakfast biscuit sandwiches. I like to add red pepper flakes because I like a sweet-and-spicy breakfast sausage, but feel free to leave those out if you're not into the spicy variety.
