    I just buy ground pork or beef and mix my own seasonings in…I just mix in my favorite homemade seasoning mix (my fav is Ras Al Hanout) and call it “sausage”. When you’re making a dish like this, it’s really tough to mess up…I HIGHLY recommend this with an over easy egg on top…if you do eggs. :D
