Breakfast Sausage

Most ready-made breakfast patties or links have added sugars, sulfates, and preservatives. Make your own and leave out the junk while being in control of just how spicy they are or are not.

  • 1 lb Ground Pork
  • 1 tsp Garlic Powder
  • 1 tsp Smoked Paprika
  • 1/2 tsp Ground Black Pepper
  • 1 tsp Dried Parsley
  • 1/4 tsp Cayenne Pepper
  • 1/2 tsp Sea Salt
  • 1 tsp Crushed Red Pepper Flakes optional, if you like it spicy


  • Combine all ingredients in a large bowl.
  • Get your hands in there and mix it all together until the spices are combined evenly throughout the pork
  • Form the pork into small patties, about 3" wide and 1/2" thick.
  • Heat a skillet over medium-high heat. Once hot, add the sausage patties and cook about 7-10 minutes, flipping once, until cooked through.
  • Alternately, you can cook all the pork at once, not forming patties, and using it as crumbled pork in other recipes, such as our Paleo Minestrone Soup.
