SNOW DAY! Okay. Probably not. It’s high school mid term week in our county. My apologies to my local teacher friends who have been waiting so patiently for a snow day. i don’t think the inch of snow in the forecast is going to be enough to shut things down. But just in case it does snow and there is no school, doesn’t some homemade breakfast sausage to go with your pancakes or waffles or French Toast sound delightful?
Homemade Breakfast Sausage
1 lb ground chicken or turkey
1 tbsp fennel seed
1 tbsp poultry seasoning
1/2 tbsp black pepper
1 tsp salt
2 chopped scallions
1. If you have a mortar and pestle, combine all the spices in the bowl and crush them to smithereens.
2. Combine the spices, meat and scallions.
3. Shape into little patties and saute until cooked through.
Often when I make sausage, I let it chill for several hours before cookings to the flavors can do whatever it is flavors do. I was too hungry to do that with this sausage and it was still quite flavorful and delicious.
If you prefer regular pork sausage, that would work here, too.
I’ll put out the white crayons, flush the ice, put my jammies on inside out and all that for everyone who just wants to stay home tomorrow.
