Venison Breakfast Sausage

Make up a batch of this spice mix ahead of time.  Adjust the servings/lbs of meat value to match the amount of spice mix you’d like to have on hand.

For 3.33 lbs or 10 lbs of meat, or multiples of those, the recipe is calibrated so most ingredients come out at an even tsp/tbsp figure.  But you’ll be able to figure it out for any amount.

I recommend not more spice mix than you expect to use in a few months.  Certainly not more than a year.

Add 1 tsp spice mix per quarter lb of ground meat, and —poof— instant fresh breakfast sausage!

The meat side of the recipe calls for 50/50 venison/pork. That’s a real loose guideline, based upon using fatty pork shoulder. If using fatback consider using 70/30 venison/pork. And in between for pork shoulder trimmings.

But 100% venison is fine if your audience and your intended use fit with leaving out the flavor and texture that comes with the fat.

For sausage patties or links, I like the added pork fat. For breakfast tacos or burritos, I prefer 100% venison. It’s all a matter of taste.
