Homemade Sausages

Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoons dried sage
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 2 teaspoons dried basil
  • 1 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried marjoram
  • 1/8 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
  • 2 pounds ground beef

Directions

  1. Stir the brown sugar, sage, salt, basil, black pepper, onion powder, marjoram, and red pepper flakes together in a small bowl. Place the ground beef in a large bowl; mix the spice blend into the ground beef with your hands until evenly integrated. Refrigerate for 24 hours to let the flavors blend.
  2. Divide the ground beef mixture into 8 patties.
  3. Place a large skillet over medium heat; cook the patties in the skillet until firm, hot, and cooked in the center, 5 to 7 minutes per side.

    I only cooked half the mixture-- I made the rest into meatballs for dinner!
