I had been at Taylor's Prime Meats to pick up the flat iron steaks, so I also got sausage and bacon for Sunday morning breakfast. Mr. Taylor himself helped me, and when I mentioned wanting the breakfast sausage, he smiled and said "This is so good."
"Do you grind this yourself?" I asked.
"Oh yes," he said. "If we were bigger we could put Farmer John out of business."
"How's so?" I inquired.
"It just kills me what they are able to get away with," he explained. "The amount of fat chunks in their breakfast sausage is terrible."
I bought just over two pounds of bulk sausage. In the morning I shaped them into patties and grilled them. The aroma was simply amazing. I placed six of the seven patties on a plate for everyone to enjoy. For the seventh piece I had something else planned.
I placed it on an English muffin with a mustard/green onion/black pepper barbecue sauce. It was fantastic. The sausage was juicy and flavorful, and indeed there were no fat chunks in it. Not once did I have to pick a tough bit of fat from between my teeth. Mr. Taylor was correct, this sausage blows Farmer John's breakfast sausage out of the water.
