The other day, I was relating to the sausage confessions of Michele at Paleo Running Momma… You know, how she used to be embarrassed to be the type of girl who ate sausage? That it wasn’t feminine, or something. It was one of those moments where the internet makes you realize you’re not nearly as awkward as you think, and all the weird quirks you thought you had are just normal, everyday human weirdnesses.
That is to say, I, too, am recovering from sausage shame, having in the past preferred to publicly admit to loving, I don’t know, birdseed or something. Carrots? “I just looooove radishes!”
said the dream-girl version of 15-year-old Cheryl.
Now? I’m older and certainly wiser. I’m also too busy to care. You know what? Birdseed sucks; sausage rules. It’s a proven fact, at least since the study only surveyed humans and not birds.
To celebrate our newfound self-confidence, I made you easy Whole30 breakfast sausage. There’s only 6 ingredients (7 if you count salt, which, don’t, because I like how ‘6 ingredients’ sounds better) and it only takes 5 minutes to prepare. Uh, what?
Yeah, if you’ve ever tried to find Whole30-compliant sausage at the store, even at a fancy place like Whole Foods (just take my money), it’s not happening. It’s not even a matter of paying $9.33 for a pound of Whole30-compliant bacon; you just can’t find it. And turns out, that’s a good thing, because yup, making your own only takes 6 ingredients and 5 minutes. It’s a matter of sprinkling seasonings over some ground pork, mixing it all up, and frying it in a pan. Easy peasy.
