This recipe was inspired by the authors’ honeymoon vow renewal and trip to a bed and breakfast in Lovettsville, Virginia. While they were there, they had a fantastic breakfast that included a German anise-flavored pork sausage. Stacy LOVED it. Her husband promised her they would recreate the delicious breakfast treat when they got home. They finally figured it out and they hope you really enjoy it! If you have casings, feel free to use this to fill them, but they work just as well loose.
I made the sausage loose to use as a topping for the caramelized onion and olive Focaccia on the right. The crust is made from Chebe, a gluten-free, grain-free tapioca/cassave-based baking mix.
1/4 C ice water
1 Tbsp whole anise seeds
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp dried thyme
1/2 tsp coriander
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp black pepper
1 lb. ground pork (pasture raised or at least organic or locally grown and hormone/antibiotic-free)
The US Wellness Meats pork is INSANELY GOOD – lots of great pastured fat
Any step marked with an asterisk (*) is a step your little licorice lover (child) can assist with. If you like the sweet and salty of bacon, we think you’ll love this unsweetened-but-sweet sugar-free sausage! This will certainly become a staple for our morning breakfasts!
