Serve with hot biscuits and your favorite jam or jelly.

Uncooked sausage may be frozen either as a whole pound or as individual sausage patties. Freeze for up to six months in a freezer quality ziptop bag or other sealable, airtight container. Try to remove as much air as possible from the bag or container before freezing. Thaw the sausage overnight in the refrigerator.
To freeze cooked sausage, allow the cooked sausage to cool, then place in a freezer bag or container. Reheat from frozen either in the microwave or on the stovetop.
