This recipe uses Hi Mountain Seasonings Prairie Sage Breakfast Sausage Seasoning, and I’ve also used Original Mountain Man Blend, and ground elk.

Elk Breakfast Sausage with Red Eye Gravy (coffee)


  • 1 1/4 pounds ground elk
  • 1/4 pound ground pork
  • 1 tablespoon Hi Mountain Prairie Sage Seasonings
  • 1 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 2 cups strong brewed coffee
  • 1 tbsp brown sugar


  • Combine elk and pork and mix well. Blend in Hi Mountain Prairie Sage Seasoning and mix well again. Form meat into sausage sized patties. Heat oil in a skillet over medium heat and evenly brown sausages on both sides until just cooked. Remove from pan and keep warm.
  • Add coffee and a tablespoon of brown sugar. Crank up the heat and reduce liquid to about 2 tablespoons. If desired, add additional coffee while reducing for a stronger tasting gravy. Once reduced, drizzle gravy over sausages.
