Jimmy Dean Sage Sauage Clone

Recipe from: Bernard W Ruland
Servings: about 1 pound

Before he became America's sausage king, Jimmy Dean was known for crooning the country hit "Big Bad John." That song came out in 1962 and sold over 8 million copies . His singing success launched a television career on ABC with "The Jimmy Dean Show" where Roy Clark, Patsy Cline and Roger Miller got their big breaks. The TV exposure led to acting roles for Jimmy, as a regular on "Daniel Boone" and in feature films including his debut in the James Bond flick "Diamonds are Forever." Knowing that a show business career is an unpredictable one, Jimmy socked his money away in hog-farming investments. In 1968, the Jimmy Dean Meat Company developed a special recipe to transform those piggies into the sausage that is now a household name.

16 ounces ground pork
1 teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon dried parsley
¼ teaspoon rubbed sage
¼ teaspoon ground black pepper
¼ teaspoon dried thyme
¼ teaspoon crushed red pepper
¼ teaspoon coriander
¼ teaspoon MSG, such as Accent flavor enhancer

Combine all ingredients for the flavor of your choice in a medium bowl. Form the sausage into patties and cook in a skillet over medium heat until brown.
