Winter has settled in around these parts. Not much to do. Think I'll thaw a deer today and grind up some breakfast sausage tomorrow. Anyone want to share their favorite recipe?

High Mountain seasonings have some good spice mixes. I use about 1/2 the recommended cure and add some mustard seed. Really like their Mountain Man blend always a crowd pleaser.

I agree with Rob. High Mountain are the best store bought mixes that I've found. I've used Gamekeeper mixes but you have to double it up. With Gamekeeper you need 2-5# mixes to do 5#. If you do that, it's pretty good. I would like to hear from anyone who makes their own mix. I've tried it and not come up with anything as good as the High Mountain.

This is awesome and you can mix it with ingredients that you have in your spice rack:

Breakfast Sausage:

5 pounds of coarse ground venison

5 pounds of coarse ground pork butt

10 teaspoons sea salt

2.5 teaspoons rubbed sage

2.5 teaspoons coarse ground black pepper

2.5 teaspoons dried thyme

2.5 teaspoons crushed red pepper

2.5 teaspoons coriander

5 teaspoons Cayenne

Notes: Recipe calls for dried parsley and MSG (Accent). I didn’t have any so left it out. Turned out excellent! Probably need to adjust a bit for teaspoons to tablespoons when doing these bigger batches. Vac sealed in 1# bags and flattened out for the freezer.

We go through a ton of this stuff!

Old Plantation #10 seasoning is awesome! You can get it at Amazon

I use pre packaged mixes for pretty much everything I make. My favorite and what we have used for 30 years is Legg’s Old Plantation. Of course, I use a lot of different seasonings from other companies and not just Legg’s. I like their breakfast sausage a lot though and they have many different blends.
