Easy breakfast sausage patties

I love to cook and expand the boundaries of cooking

The flavor of these easy breakfast sausage patties is savory and mild, with just a little bit of spice and sweetness. You can easily change the ingredients to make it more spicy, sweet or smoky, depending on your preferences. Children love the sweeter version of it. You can add maple syrup for sweet sausage patties.

You can do a test patty first before you prepare the whole batch to make sure you get the spices right. You can let the sausage patties sit in a fridge overnight for more flavor or fry them right away. They are always very delicious.

  • 1 bay leaf, dry
  • 15 ml red chili flakes
  • 15 ml fresh sage, chopped
  • 15 ml powdered mustard
  • 20 ml nutmeg
  • 1 lb ground pork
  • 20 ml salt
  • 30 ml black pepper


  1. Take a spice grinder and grin the leaf and flakes. Add nutmeg, mustard and sage. You should get a combined powder. Combine the spices with pork in a huge bowl with salt and pepper. Spices should be combined throughout the pork. Add more chili powder to spice up the meat.

  2. Form patties, each of them should be around 3 inches wide and 1.5 inches thick. Make a small hole in the center of every patty with your finger. Otherwise, your patties won't be flat during cooking. Refrigerate the meat overnight or for an hour. The flavors will melt together. Raw patties can spend 4 days in a fridge in a plastic wrap. The more they sit, the more flavor they will get.

  3. Take a skillet, sprinkle it with oil and put it on a medium heat. Fry all putties from both sides, they should get a nice brown color. Each patty takes around 10 minutes. Use a spatula to transfer patties to a plate. Serve hot.
