QUICK + EASY ENTERTAINING TIPS

homemade breakfast sausage

I must admit, this was my first time making my own homemade breakfast sausage and I can’t believe how easy and delicious it was. This recipe has hints of fennel and mustard in it which I love and it comes together in no time. It’s perfect for a leisurely weekend breakfast, as well as being really easy to increase for entertaining.

2 tablespoons unsalted butter, divided
1 teaspoon finely minced onion
Salt, to taste
Freshly ground black pepper
1/2 small clove garlic, finely minced
1/4 teaspoon dried fennel seeds
1/2 teaspoon Dijon mustard
1/4 pound ground pork

1. In a medium sauté pan, heat 1 tablespoon butter over medium heat. Add onion and cook until translucent, about 3 minutes. Season with salt and pepper. Add garlic and cook for another 1-2 minutes. Transfer to a medium bowl and allow to cool slightly. When cooled, add fennel, mustard and pork and mix to combine. Form mixture into a patty and set aside.
2. Wipe out sauté pan and return to stove. Add remaining 1 tablespoon butter over medium heat. Cook sausage patty until golden brown on both sides, about 5-7 minutes. Transfer to a paper towel-lined plate and set aside until ready to serve.

Serves 1.
