Sage breakfast sausages are one of the favorite breakfasts of my children. I don’t like store-bough sausages because they have preservatives and added flavors. You can make even tastier version at home, and homemade sausages are much healthier.
These tasty sausages are an easy way to change your every day oatmeal and smoothies and get a solid meal in the morning. You can serve it with greens, soup or sweet potato leftovers for a fulfilling, balanced and healthy meal.
Sage breakfast sausages
This sage breakfast sausages don't contain added sugars or preservatives. There are only natural spices that you can find in any grocery store. They are very healthy and deliver a great flavor. They are very easy to cook and require less than 20 minutes of your time. With these sausages, less is definitely more.
- 2 lbs Ground Pork
- 15 ml fresh sage, diced
- 15 ml fresh thyme
- 10 ml red pepper flakes
- 4 cloves garlic, roasted
- 15 ml salt
- 8 ml pepper
Take a big bowl, mix everything together. I usually mix with hands, but you can use a plastic spatula. Prepare the patties. Take a baking sheet, line it with paper. Spread the mixture over a baking sheet. Take a cookie cutter and cut out the patties into equal pieces.
Take a skillet, add 1 tablespoon of olive oil and heat it over medium heat. I recommend taking a skillet with a tight fitting lid. When the oil is hot, add the patties. Cover them immediately, fry for 4 minutes.
Flip every patty on the other size, reduce the heat to low and cover again. Cook for 4 minutes. The patties should be fully cooked. Remove the patties from the pan and place it on a plate. Cover with paper towels.
Serve hot with any sauce and side dish.
Sage can be overwhelming if you add too much. It's a very powerful herb, and there is no going back once it's in the mixture. I recommend adding a bit less if you've never used sage before and then add more if you like its flavor. Or you can cook one patty with sage and taste the result. This is also a great way to adjust seasonings, add more salt and other spices. When you have tried the first patty, you will know the rest of them are delicious.
