Breakfast Sausage

Breakfast sausage was originally created by farmers. They needed a way to get the greatest yield from their pigs, and this tasty morning treat was the answer.

Our version is ground pork simply seasoned with salt, black pepper, and sage—with no added sugar of course. It’s a simple and delicious way to start the day.
