Recipe Notes

I like to mix it up the day before if I know I'll be using it soon. That allows all the seasonings to marry beautifully overnight. The flavors are all blended when it's time to cook the sausage the next day.

But to be honest I've totally mixed this up on the fly right before cooking my sausage. Although I still prefer a little more pre-planning and mixing it up the night before, it's still fine that way.
