Homemade Breakfast Sausage Patties

We had some ground pork left over, and I thought it would be fun to try to make sausage patties to go with breakfast.

I’m not a big fan of sausage usually, because a lot of them incorporate caraway or fennel seeds, and I don’t really like those too much.

So this was a great way to use spices that we like, and make something without a bunch of nitrates in it.

Make sure you add enough salt if you want it to taste sausage-y. Otherwise it’s a little bit like a pork meatball.

Dino made some omelets with cheese and some tomatoes from our garden and toasted up some wheat bread to go with this sausage. It was a really nice way to start the day.

  1. Heat oil in a nonstick skillet over medium-high heat.
  2. In a medium bowl, mix together remaining ingredients with your hands, being careful not to overmix.
  3. Form into patties, and fry in the hot oil, flipping to ensure both sides cook through.


If your sausage patties aren’t cooking through, cover the skillet with a lid and lower the heat a bit until they’re fully cooked.
