I am very excited to share this easy breakfast sausage recipe with you! It may not look like much, but it is the real deal!
One thing that is undeniably difficult about starting the AIP is giving up yucky processed meats. Particularly breakfast meats. When you are trying to incorporate protein into your breakfast every day, what you wouldn't give for a nice breakfast sausage or slice of maple-bacon! Don't worry, there are good alternatives.
During AIP elimination, I saw and loved the idea of handmade sausage patties. I tried a few recipes but that authentic sausage-y taste was just missing! Until now. I'm not sure what it is about this recipe, but it tastes and smells exactly like a good, authentic, breakfast sausage! I was ecstatic. Even my non-AIP picky-eater husband ate them and pronounced that they do, indeed, taste like "real" sausage. So there you go. Ha ha!
These call for black pepper, which is of course an AIP reintroduction. While they taste best with it, go ahead and omit it for AIP elimination. You can up the amount of ginger a little bit to compensate. These would also be good (though less authentic) with other ground meat of your choice.
Tip: Freeze half your batch, separating patties with waxed paper, for quick and easy breakfast solutions.
I'd love to hear what you think and if you have tried this recipe! Scroll down to comment.
