Copycat Jimmy Dean Breakfast Sausage

Making your own sausage is relatively simple and these copycat Jimmy Dean breakfast sausage seasoning blends will be having everyone in your family begging you to make more.

Pork Butt is a relatively inexpensive cut of meat (frequently only $1.48 a pound) and comes in a very large cut of meat (usually 12-18 pounds at a time). Cut the pork into small chunks and feed it into the grinder.


Repeat until all of the pork has been ground.


We generally purchase a large pork butt and cut it into 4 equal pieces which become 2 nice roasts and several pounds of sausage. If you have a kitchenaid mixer, they have a grinder attachment available for making your own sausage.

However, if you don’t have a mixer or a meat grinder at home, be aware that Most butchers/ meat department employees will be more than willing to cut and grind up your pork for you at no extra charge, all you need to do is ask them.


We prefer to mix this up ahead of time and then freeze it until needed, it allows time for the flavors to fully develop. However, it can be used right away if you prefer.

Once you have your sausage mixed, then form into patties using your hands and cook as you would Jimmy Dean breakfast sausage.
