Homemade Pork Sausage Meat Spice Mix

Homemade Pork Sausage Meat Spice Mix

Homemade spice mixes are a super convenient addition to your spice cupboard. This homemade Pork Sausage Meat Spice Mix is a versatile mix that can be used in all sorts of recipes… even with other ground meats besides pork.

You won’t find anything similar in a ready made mix in the store because it’s a recipe that I came up with through trial and error when we moved back to Canada after living in the States for several years.

Right before we moved back, we lived in Rome, GA for 5 years. While living there, we started buying pork sausage meat from one of the local farmers selling pasture raised pork.

That pork sausage meat was sooo good! It was just the right combination of spicy and savory.

It was the farmer’s “secret” blend so I knew that once we moved, I wouldn’t be able to get it at our new location. 

The list of spices was on each package but it was up to me to do the experimenting with different measurements to try to get the same great taste.

If you’re looking for a sausage meat spice mix that’s a little different than you’ll find elsewhere, I encourage you to give this one a try.

I use it to make sausage gravy.

I also use it when I want to switch things up from my homemade taco seasoning mix.

For instance, it made these Sausage Stuffed Zucchini Pizza Boats taste delicious.

The recipe can easily be doubled or tripled if you’re making recipes to feed a crowd.

Quadrupling the recipe will fill a quarter pint small mason jar to always have on hand. It’s a great time saver!

To make a single recipe to flavor one pound of ground pork you’ll need:

  • 1/2 tsp paprika

You’ll end up with a spice mix that looks something like this.

The above recipe makes 1 1/2 Tbsp of mix to add to 1 pound of ground pork or ground meat of your choice.

 

As I mentioned earlier, by quadrupling the recipe you’ll have enough to fill a quarter pint mason jar.

I’ve done the math for you:

  • 2 tsp paprika
  • 2 tsp nutmeg
  • 2 tsp garlic powder
  • 2 tsp onion powder
  • 2 sea salt
  • 2 tsp freshly ground peper
  • 1 tsp thyme
  • 1 tsp parsley
  • 1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 1/4 tsp of sage

Use 1 1/2 Tbsp per each pound of ground meat that you’re cooking.

 

Having ready made spice mixes on hand makes getting supper on the table that much quicker.

A jar of this along with a jar of homemade Taco Seasoning would make a really nice, inexpensive neighbor gift come the holidays.
