Spicy Homemade Breakfast Sausage

This is really good. (At least we think so) I don't even bother buying commercial brands anymore. This sausage makes great gravy for your biscuits.


Spicy Homemade Breakfast Sausage


Makes 1+ pound bulk sausage

Ingredients:
  • 1 Pound of ground pork
  • 1 Teaspoon of salt
  • 1/2 Teaspoon of cayenne
  • 1/4 Teaspoon of rubed sage
  • 1/4 Teaspoon of black pepper
  • 1/4 Teaspoon of crushed red pepper
  • 1/4 Teaspoon of coriander
  • 1/4 Teaspoon of MSG

Directions:
Combine all the ingredients in a medium bowl and mix well with your hands. Set in the refrigerator overnight to let the flavors combine. Form the sausage into small patties and fry.

A Little About MSG:
MSG, or Monosodium Glutamate is a salt of the amino acid "Glutamic Acid". It is available both in natural form as well as artificially manufactured form. In a nutshell, it's main application in commercial food production is to trick the brain into thinking that the food tastes better than what it actually does. According to some MSG opponents the glutamate added to foods is "bad" and naturally occuring glutamate in our bodies is "good". MSG sellers argue that MSG is exactly like the glutamate in the human body, therefore it must all be "good". It has been shown that some people do have allergic reactions to MSG so it is your decision on whether or not to use it in this recipe. I would like to add however that almost all food purchased at your local grocery store has MSG added to it so if you haven't had a reaction yet, chances are it will not be a problem now.

These sound delicious. I will be making them today to fry up tomorrow. I also love the blurb about MSG.

Is MSG necessary in the recipe or is a fairly big part of the overall flavor? Have you made it without?

The recipe sounds great and if I make it fresh I would like to leave out the MSG as long as it doesn't effect the overall flavor.
