Breakfast Sausage Patties

Breakfast Sausage Patties on Breakfast Dinner PlateI love breakfast for dinner. Who wouldn't? It's actually the best time to MAKE breakfast in my opinion. I mean...who really wants to get up super early to make breakfast sausages and pancakes from scratch while cooking eggs and bacon? I know I don't. But that's probably because I'm not that fast of a cook. I really should learn to organize myself some more. It'd probably help me spend less time in the kitchen cooking. Lol. Maybe one day I'll do it. I"m sure I will. Just not now. Maybe tomorrow. Or the day after. Or the day after that.....

Breakfast Sausage Patties
(makes 6 small or 4 large patties)

  • 1 lb lean ground pork
  • 1/4 tsp crushed red pepper flakes
  • 1/4 tsp ground allspice
  • 1/4 tsp dried basil
  • 1/2 tsp ground black pepper
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp dried sage
  • 1 1/2 tsp packed brown sugar
  • 1 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil

Breakfast Dinner Plate Directions:
  1. Mix everything, EXCEPT olive oil, together in a medium bowl.
  2. Split meat mixture into 4 or 6 sections and form each section into a patty. Make a thumbprint in the middle of each patty.
  3. Heat oil in a large frying pan on medium high heat. Fry patties 5 minutes on each side or until internal temperature reaches 160F.
  4. Serve with bacon, eggs, toast, pancakes, waffle, etc.

I burnt my sausages a little. Whoops. Distractions will do that to you. They were still yummy though! Super juicy.

I had prepped the sausage patties a couple of hours and put them in the fridge before I fried them. If you're going to do that, it's a good idea to take them out 15-20 minutes before you cook them, just to take the chill off. It makes for more even cooking. And putting a thumbprint in the middle of the patties make them "dome up" a little less.

December 21, 2015 Update: I now make these super thin (faster cooking and better for sandwiches) and freeze them between layers of waxed paper in a ziploc bag. I just defrost them using the microwave when I wanna cook them in the morning and then pan fry them.
