Sausage on the Blackstone – Ingredients

All you need for this recipe is a pound of ground sausage and a tablespoon of oil. There are many types of sausage from pork to turkey to varieties with cheese and onion.

Some refrigerated or freezer packages have pre-made patties that are easy to go from package to griddle. Other packages require you to handmake patties.

An easy techniques for the griddle is to make 8 round balls in your hands with the ground sausage. Place on griddle and flatten them with a large spatula.

Alternatively you can form the patties and place them on a plate or directly to the flat top surface to cook.

The oil helps the patties to keep from sticking to the griddle surface. You can use olive oil, avocado oil or canola oil for good results and flavor.

You can cook the sausage patties on a Blackstone or other outdoor or indoor griddle.

Sausage on the Blackstone – Prepare Griddle

First, apply a tablespoon of oil to the griddle surface. (If this is the first time you are using your Blackstone read our Guide for Seasoning the Blackstone before you get started cooking.) I use olive oil for flavor and health benefits. You can also use avocado oil or canola oil.

Next, preheat griddle to medium temperature of 350°F for 5 minutes. Use a point and shoot thermometer to make it easy to see what the griddle temperature is.

All griddles including the Blackstone have spots that are hotter in some areas due to the placement of the burners and the wind and outside temperature.

Use the point and shoot thermometer to aim and click to see the various temperatures to help with ingredient placement for the flat surface.

Sausage on the Blackstone – Assembling

Prepare patties and have them on a plate or tray before taking them out to the griddle. Alternatively you can open the package right at the grill. Whichever method works for you is the best method!

Be sure to bring a plate or tray to put the cooked food on for serving and also a spatula for turning the patties. Add some oil to the griddle where you are placing the patties and use the spatula to smear the oil and cover the surface.

Sausage on the Blackstone – Cooking Directions and Griddle Temperature

Place sausage patties in a single layer on the griddle that you have heated to 350° F and lightly oiled. Cook for 4 minutes and turn them over with the spatula. Repeat turning every 4 or 5 minutes until the sausage patties are browned on the outside.

Cook sausage patties until the sausages reach an internal temperature of 160 degrees F if the patties are made of beef, pork, lamb or veal. If they have chicken or turkey in the ground meat they should be cooked to an internal temperature of 165 degrees F according to the USDA Temperature to Cook Sausage.

It will take about 15 minutes to cook the sausages until they are done. Always be sure they are cooked to a safe internal temperature.

To cook multiple breakfast items, you can place food along the edge of the griddle where the heat is not as hot (away from the path of the burners underneath) and let them finish cooking without burning the outsides.

Another option is to set them on a wire rack for the Blackstone griddle to finish cooking or stay warm.

Check the safe temperature with a meat thermometer or press on them to see if they feel firm but spring back a little. You can also visually see that the patties have shrunk.

The most accurate way to be sure they are fully cooked is to stick a meat thermometer in the sausage patties to make sure the sausage is cooked to a safe temperature.

They need to reach an internal temperature of 160 degrees F for patties made with beef, pork, lamb or veal or a safe internal temperature of 165 degrees F for patties made of chicken or turkey.

Sausage on the Blackstone – Serving Suggestions
