Even if you're not doing a Whole30, this Whole30 Sausage is a breakfast WIN! It's full of flavor and protein and it's super easy to make thanks to a couple shortcuts. You'll be so happy to know exactly what's going into your breakfast sausage!
In a large bowl, combine all ingredients until all ingredients are evenly dispersed. Form into about 16 small patties, pressing them thin, and slightly thinner in the centers.
Preheat a large skillet to medium-high heat. Add oil or ghee and sausage patties. You will likely need to cook these in batches to avoid crowding the pan. Fry sausage patties for 10 minutes, flipping after 5 minutes. Patties should reach an internal temperature of 165°F. If they’re browning too quickly on the outside (before the inside cooks), turn heat down to medium.
If desired, place on a paper towel lined plate to soak up some of the grease.
Want to turn up the heat? Add more cayenne or red pepper flakes.
What to make it a little more lean? Substitute ground turkey or ground chicken breast for the pork. You'll want to use a little more fat/oil when cooking them if you choose to do this.
Want bigger sandwich-sized patties? Form into 8 patties instead of 16.
Freezing directions: You can separate them into patties and freeze them either raw or cooked.
