Homemade keto breakfast sausage patties

It can be tricky to find breakfast sausage that isn’t loaded with sugar and additives. Luckily, it’s super easy to make your own at home! And it’s also more cost effective (and even more delicious, in my humble opinion). I used ground pork, but you can also use ground chicken or turkey if that is what you prefer.

How To Make This Best Ever Breakfast Sausage

Combine the meat and spices in a bowl and mix well using clean hands. Form the mixture into 6 patties, about 3 inches wide and 3/4 inches thick.

Heat the oil in a large cast iron pan or non stick pan over medium high heat. Add the sausage patties and cook them for 3-4 minutes on each side, until they’re cooked through.

Transfer them to a paper towel-lined plate to drain some of the fat. Serve alongside your favorite breakfast foods and enjoy!
