Breakfast sausage is ground and usually heavily seasoned with a blend of spices that includes some mixture of sage, thyme, salt, and pepper. The meat blend in link sausage is generally smoother, while patty sausage is less homogenous (though, to most taste buds, no less delicious).
In an ideal world, we ‘d use the highest quality Italian sausage from the most incredible little Italian shop you could find. But this isn’t ideal. 1 pound breakfast sausage . 1 teaspoon fennel seeds (this is absolutely imperative, fennel seeds are what *make* Italian sausage )
Arrange the sausage patties evenly spaced on the hot griddle plate. Cook the patties for 5 to 6 minutes, until they have reached an internal temperature of 170°F. This is a great, quick way to cook sausage for sausage biscuits or other breakfast sandwiches.
They serve two types of patties – what they call smoked sausage and their other is turkey sausage . I can’t find this smoked patty to buy anywhere. I have written to Cracker Barrel to encourage them to make to sell retail but they just say they will take it under advisement.
I’ve found that a 30-70 mix of beef and turkey/chicken works reasonably well as a substitute when pork is not available. Beef is too strong a flavor and turkey too weak in its own. Flavor-wise most italian sausage has red wine, fennel , and oregano.
