Breakfast Sausage is a staple for most breakfasts. Who does not LOVE sausage?! It goes great with eggs for the ultimate breakfast. It is NOT just for breakfast; you can put it on top of a salad at lunch or in your favorite marinara for dinner. Breakfast sausage is a staple when meal prepping, especially if doing a Whole30. I usually make a large batch of it and store it in the fridge to use all week. It is perfect for a quick and easy breakfast and to mix in with different meals. This versatile recipe works well with ground meat, pork, chicken, or turkey.
An average breakfast in our house consists of sausage, eggs, and sweet potatoes. Finding a clean and affordable Sausage is no easy task. Add on trying to find one that is Whole30 compliant and tastes good. Therefore, I set out to create my own. I cannot tell you the number of Sausage recipes I have tried and failed! Many versions have ended in the trash can because I was not too fond of the seasoning or it was too dry. Nobody likes dry sausage!
Change it up:
What is great about this recipe is you can make it more or less spicy. Add more or less Crushed Red Pepper. If you prefer something a little sweeter or want to change it up, add a little Maple Syrup (not Whole30). Another plus in making your sausage is that you can prepare it however you want. You can make links, patties, meatballs, or crumbles. Then you have it ready to throw on or with anything. If you don't tolerate eggs, omit the egg. I hope you ENJOY this recipe as much as we do!Print
