Homemade Breakfast Sausage Patties
Recipe type: Breakfast
Total time: 
Serves: 12-18
Homemade breakfast sausage patties are so much better than store-bought!
  • 3 lbs fresh ground pork
  • ⅓ cup minced or pureed onion
  • 3 tsp maple syrup
  • 1 tsp poultry seasoning
  • 1 tsp dried oregano
  • 1 tsp dried basil
  • 1 tsp pepper
  • 2 tsp dried parsley
  • 2 tsp salt
  1. Combine all ingredients in a large bowl and mix gently with your hands, breaking up pork and working spices through. Do not overmix.
  2. Dump meat onto a long piece of plastic wrap, then top with another piece of plastic wrap or a piece of waxed paper. With a rolling pin, roll meat out to ¼" thickness. Remove top layer of wrap and cut out patties with a round cookie cutter in your preferred size (the patties will shrink slightly when cooked - I used a 3" cutter for 18 fairly small patties).
  3. TO COOK IMMEDIATELY: Heat 1 Tbsp olive oil in a large frying pan over medium-high heat. Add patties, 4-6 at a time, and cook for 4-5 minutes per side, until golden brown with no pink remaining in the centre. Transfer to a paper towel-lined plate and repeat with remaining patties.
  4. TO FREEZE: Transfer uncooked patties to a large cookie sheet lined with parchment or waxed paper. Freeze for about 2 hours, until solid, then transfer to a large freezer bag and freeze until needed. (if you're like me, set a timer when you put them in the freezer the first time or you'll forget about getting them into that freezer bag :))
  5. COOK FROM FROZEN: Follow regular cooking instructions, but cook for 6-7 minutes per side.
