Breakfast Sausage Patties
Not a fan of pre-formed patties, but not yet ready to see how the sausage is made? Our recipe delivers tender, juicy sausage patties flavored with fresh herbs—no meat grinder required.
- 12 ounces good quality ground pork breakfast sausage
- 1 tablespoon butter
- 3 sprigs fresh thyme
- 6 fresh sage leaves
- Salt and pepper to taste
- Prep the patties—Divide sausage into 4 pieces and shape into round patties.
- Sear the sausage—Melt butter in a small skillet over medium heat, tilting skillet to coat evenly. Add sausage patties and cook for about 3 to 4 minutes or until nicely browned on the underside.
- Finish and serve—Flip sausage patties. Add sage leaves and fresh thyme to skillet and cook for an additional 3 to 4 minutes or until patties reach an internal temperature of 160°F. Season with salt and pepper to taste, garnish with the sage leaves and fresh thyme, and serve.
Our recipe works great with chicken or turkey sausage, too! Try adding 1/2 cup diced apples for extra moisture and a blend of spices to boost flavor.
Sausage patties can go from moist, delicious morsels to dried-out hockey pucks in mere minutes.
