Lean ground meat along with fresh herbs and seasonings produces a healthy homemade breakfast sausage so good you’ll never buy store-bought again.
I love getting my Milk and Eggs delivery each month. It means I don’t have to go to the grocery store and my delivery usually lasts me at least the entire 30 days if not more. I spend on average $100 a month with them and I get at least 5-6 complete meals out of it. Not bad for $100. And I’m buying local so win-win. I purposely put lean ground turkey and fresh herbs in my Milk and Eggs cart this month with this recipe in mind.
Breakfast sausage? I know not exactly what you would expect from me. This recipe came together because my favorite 5280Meat is on hiatus for the summer so I needed a bacon alternative. This was so easy that I cannot believe I haven’t made my own breakfast sausages before. Meat, herbs, seasonings – that’s it.
While I used lean ground turkey, you can use your preferred ground meat whether it be pork, beef, turkey or chicken. The cook time will vary depending on if you use poultry or red meat so be sure to cook your meat properly.
- 1 lb lean ground meat
- 1 garlic clove, minced
- 1 tsp salt
- 1 tsp thyme
- ½ tsp oregano
- ½ tsp onion powder
- ¼ tsp pepper
- ¼ tsp paprika
- ¼ tsp cinnamon
- Combine all ingredients in a large mixing bowl. Make sausage patties to desired size and thickness.
- Add patties to skillet and cook over medium heat until brown on both sides and completely cooked through.
I get approximately 8 patties. You can freeze raw patties for up to one month. If you don’t have a Lodge cast-iron skillet then use a non-stick. These sausages are both whole30 and paleo compliant.
