How to Make Breakfast Sausage at Home! Nitrate free!

A friend of mine recently retweeted this recipe, and I was so excited to try it.  With the exception of "real" maple syrup, I had it all in my kitchen already!  My husband has recently decided to avoid ALL nitrates.  We had already cut down on major sources (such as lunchmeat), but due to family history, he felt it best to avoid them all.  This means special bacon, hot dogs and no sausage.

And then I saw this recipe:  So simple, I cut the sausage into little patties and cooked them on my stovetop.  We cooked some unformed sausage to use in omelets with dinner.  And there was a fruit salad, too. The rest of the batch is in my freezer waiting for another day to be eaten.
