Breakfast Sausage

7 pounds of ground pork shoulder (grinding it yourself is best)
2t thyme
1T black pepper
1T salt
1T seasoned salt
2T ground parsley
1t red pepper flakes
1t ground nutmeg
2t sage
I have also used ground jalapeno pepper (from American Spice Company) to make it more spicy but you could use Cheyenne or white pepper if you so choose.

Mix all the spices together and then blend with the pork.
Let it sit covered in the fridge for 12 to 24 hours.
Form into patties the size of your choice (I prefer slider size, bigger than a meatball smaller than a burger).
*tip-keep a bowl of water nearby and continually wet your hands to keep them from getting sticky
Cook the ones you want for now and freeze the rest.
