Not only are they delicious, but they’re also surprisingly easy to make. And with our easy-to-follow recipe, you can master the art of making breakfast sausage patties like a pro in no time!

Recipe Ingredients!

The first step to making breakfast sausage patties is to gather the ingredients you need. You will need ground pork, salt, pepper, rubbed sage, brown sugar. All of these ingredients should be easy to find at most grocery stores (or even in your own pantry!). 

List of Ingredients:

  • one pound of ground pork
  • one teaspoon of salt
  • ¼ teaspoon of pepper
  • ¼ teaspoon of rubbed sage
  • ½ teaspoon of brown sugar

Mixing It Up!

Once you have all the ingredients gathered together, it’s time to mix them together. Place the pork into a medium-sized bowl and add in all the spices and brown sugar. Use your hands or a wooden spoon and mix everything together until everything is evenly distributed throughout the pork mixture.

Now that everything is mixed together, it’s time to form the patties! Take some of the pork mixture into your hands and roll it into a ball about two inches in diameter. Flatten out each ball into a patty shape and set aside on parchment paper or wax paper until all the patties have been formed.

Cooking Time!

Now that all your patties are formed, it’s time for cooking! Heat up some oil or butter in a large skillet over medium heat and place as many patties as will fit without overcrowding them (usually about four at once). Let them cook for about four minutes per side or until they reach an internal temperature of 165°F. Once cooked through remove from heat and repeat with any remaining patties until all have been cooked through.

Time to Eat!

Breakfast sausage patties are a classic morning meal that can be served with a variety of sides. Serve the sausages up with scrambled eggs, omelet, or vegetables for a balanced breakfast, or try some fluffy pancakes, creamy oatmeal, crispy hash browns, or over-easy toast. For more hearty meals, add in some grilled tomatoes and mushrooms or roasted potatoes. With so many options available, you're sure to find the perfect accompaniments to your breakfast sausage patties.
