Breakfast sausage patties are quite simple to create at home. We love the addition of sausage to our breakfast plate, and with this quick recipe, we can have all the flavors of sausage in the morning, without any unfavorable ingredients.

      the ham in the recipe confuses me.

      Thanks for pointing that out – it was an error and is now fixed.

      A really great recipe… my 7 year old had a blast making them with me and was so proud that everyone loved them! So much more flavor than store bought!

      This recipe is very easy and quick to make. I liked making the smaller size patties. I am a little sensitive to pork sausage so eating just one small patty was just enough for me. They were very tasty!

      This is a great recipe! I substituted the pork for chicken (I’m not a pork fan), and it came out terrific! My 15 and 5 year old daughters helped make these. They love to cook with mom, and I am super blessed to get to teach them to cook healthy and eat clean!

      These are delicious! I used fresh, pressed garlic (it was unclear if you meant fresh or dried in the recipe). I omitted the fennel because I don’t like the taste of fennel. I omitted the paprika and the white pepper because I didn’t have any. They came out great! My husband and I loved the first batch so much that I made a double batch so that they would last a little longer.

      These are terrific! I checked out several recipes for breakfast sausage before choosing this one. And this is the one I will use forevermore! Really delicious, and I love that I no longer will be buying store-bought, factory processed sausage.

      These are very easy to make, however next time I will make them smaller in size. The spices are great, but the fennel is a bit strong so if you’re not a fan I’d leave it out or reduce it.

      These are delicious and very easy to make. I made mine the night before so the flavors can really come out and boy did they! If you’re not a heat person, omit the cayenne. I too omitted the paprika and the white pepper since I didn’t have any and I used fresh pressed garlic. I’m freezing them so they’ll be a quick breakfast. Thanks so much for the recipe!!

      We can’t find ‘American’ sausage patties in Australia and my grandson (4) is coming over from the US – sausage and scrambled eggs are his favourite so I started to research making my own. Used this recipe and it is 5 star in my book – absolutely delicious. I separated and used the cayenne (and added a few chilli flakes) to half to make spicy (which I love) and left the remainder without. They are both outstanding. I also added a tspn of onion powder to the mix. I especially like that we know exactly what is in them. Thank you so much!

        Wow, thank you so much! I’m so happy you enjoyed them. Making sausage at home is so easy and delicious 🙂

      Very good. Much better than store bought sausage. I used fresh garlic and they were delicious.

      We just love this sausage recipe. I have turned it into a 2 main dishes by adding a few ingredients.
      Italian: cook pork w/ herbs substituting oregano for sage, then add one 15 oz. can of diced tomatoes and 1 lb. pkg. frozen onion/bell pepper fajita mix. Cook until vegetables are tender. Serve with spaghetti squash.
      Breakfast scramble: cook pork w/ herbs, add 1 lb. pkg. frozen onion/bell pepper fajita mix, 1 large sweet potato, cut into pieces, 1 can coconut milk, and 1 8 oz. can pineapple tidbits. Cook until potatoes are tender. We get 4 servings from the full recipe. It makes a welcome change from eggs for breakfast when doing a paleo food plan.

      Excited to try this! I’ve been searching for a breakfast sausage for weeks but they all seem to have added sugar and grains. Are you able to cook them and freeze them?

      having to start trying to find low cholesterol replacements for my breakfasts finding this was a godsend, i use heart smart pork mince and it turned out amazing. going to be using it as a substitute for the bacon in my egg white omelet now also 🙂

      I just made this without the cayenne and white pepper. It’s really delicious!

      This may seem silly, but is the coconut oil in the patties or just used in the skillet to cook them.

      Ground the pork and mixed the spice the night before. Let it sit overnight in refrigerator. Seemed more robust. What a hit with the family!!
