Recipe: Breakfast Sausage Patties {DHwRF, AIP}

I've found that in the mornings, it's really important to have some breakfast items that are quick grab-n-go. One healthy way I've managed to do this is by making a big batch of breakfast sausage patties on the weekends. I then keep the patties in a container in the fridge, and every morning I grab a couple, heat them in the microwave, then eat them in the car on my way to work. I also give each of our kids one of these each morning as part of their breakfast so that I know they're starting their days with some healthy protein.

The recipe I use is a personal modification of several recipes I've seen online or in cookbooks. It is AIP-compliant and also has a DHwRF-compliant option. Here it is below if you'd like to try it. :)

Breakfast Sausage Patties {DHwRF, AIP}

  • 2 lbs ground meat (I use turkey, you could also use pork)
  • 2 tsp salt (or more to taste, I like mine a little saltier)
  • 3 tsp dried rosemary
  • 2 tsp dried thyme
  • 1 tsp dried sage
  • optional: maple syrup (leave out for DHwRF) or dried fruit (I always add some maple syrup now as I love the sweetness it adds)
  1. Combine all ingredients together in a bowl.
  2. Mix together well with hands until all ingredients are evenly dispersed.
  3. Cover and let sit in refrigerator for at least 15 minutes, up to overnight, to let flavors set.
  4. Preheat oven to 475 degrees.
  5. Cover baking sheet with parchment paper.
  6. Make patties out of meat mixture and set on parchment paper. If meat sticks to hands, rinse hands in water and the water will help prevent stickiness.
  7. Bake patties in oven for 10 minutes. Flip, then bake for another 10 minutes. Then set broiler on high for 2-3 minutes to brown tops.
  8. When fully cooked, remove from oven, let cool, then place in glass container in refrigerator. If you don't think you'll eat them all within a week, store some of them in the freezer.
You could also try adding other veggies or flavors, such as some onion or some spinach. Spinach is the next thing I want to try to sneak some extra nutrients into my kids. ;)
