Homemade Breakfast Sausage Patties

Pin It
One of my favorite childhood memories is Christmas morning with my family. The four kids would sit on the steps leading down to the family room to take a group picture. (By the way--looking back on these pictures present day is hilarious. It's a tradition I highly recommend doing with your own family!) Then we'd go down the steps, turn the corner, and be delighted by all the presents Santa brought us. After we were done playing with our new toys, we would enjoy a nice, big family breakfast. These breakfasts always included my Dad's Sausage McMuffins. They were (and still are) my favorite.
He would use packaged sausage to make his breakfast sandwiches, but this is an easy and healthy alternative to using already prepared sausage. I had some leftover ground pork in my refrigerator, so I simply added some sage, thyme and a few other seasonings to turn these into breakfast patties. These are great on their own or dipped in maple syrup. They would be great on a breakfast sandwich as well. Enjoy!

Printable Recipe

  • 1 lb. ground pork
  • 1/2 tbsp. dried thyme
  • 1/2 tbsp. dried sage
  • 1/2 tsp. pepper
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1/4 tsp. red pepper flakes
  • 1/4 tsp. garlic powder
  • 1/4 tsp. onion powder
  • 1 tbsp. canola oil
In a medium bowl, combine pork, thyme, sage, pepper, salt, red pepper flakes, garlic powder and onion powder. 

Take 2 tbsp. of the pork mixture and roll into a ball. Flatten so it is about 1/4-inch thick. Repeat with remaining mixture.

Heat oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Add patties to skillet and cook for 4-5 minutes per side. 

Serve with maple syrup. 

Tip: You can make the patties ahead of time and freeze them before the cooking stage for later use. When ready to cook, cook while frozen and add 2-3 minutes onto the cook time. You can also freeze already cooked patties and zap them in the microwave to reheat.
