Homemade Sausage


This sausage makes me feel like a little kid in my grandmother's kitchen.  Mornings in the country spent with my grandparents were wonderful & one thing was always sure ~ there would be a big breakfast to start the day.  I distinctly remember waking up as a kid to the smell of breakfast being made by a woman who loved her family & loved Jesus more.  

She gets up before dawn to prepare breakfast for her household {Proverbs 31:15 NLT}

1 pound lean ground beef
