I honestly was skeptical about making them my first time, I really thought they would be very difficult and I don't usually have all the ingredients.


I purposely keep all dried herbs and spices on hand needed to make these anytime and ground pork in the freezer.


I couldn't find dried savory so I looked up the substitutions that are recommended and it said to use dried basil, it worked perfectly.


Fresh buttermilk is a must-have in this recipe.


There are a few ingredients you may not have in the pantry, so check out my list below.


These are the best pork breakfast sausages I have ever eaten and you can adjust the heat or spiciness to how you like them.
