Breakfast . . . the bane of my existence 😆 Okay, so maybe I’m being a tad dramatic. But seriously, breakfast is the hardest meal for me. It takes me a minimum of 2 hours to be fully functional in the morning!
That is why my daughter and I survive the morning thanks to Overnight Oatmeal, Breakfast Muffins, Fresh Fruit Salad, this Breakfast Sausage Recipe and if I’m feeling really motivated (hardly ever) I may make a good Breakfast Hash.
I am always in need of quick low effort breakfast ideas or meals that can be prepped and ready to go in the morning. This Breakfast Sausage Recipe falls under the meal prep category. With a little effort on the weekend we can have tasty sausage patties in the morning for our weekday breakfasts!
This sausage patty recipe is as easy as mixing up the ingredients, shaping the patties and frying them up. That’s It!
The seasoning on these is very traditional. These sausages have the flavor of a classic breakfast sausage that you would buy at the store, without any hidden ingredients or preservatives.
What is the best way to cook breakfast sausage?
I pan fry my breakfast sausage over medium/high heat. This method takes just a few minutes. You can bake sausage patties at 350ºF until cooked through (time varies depending on thickness). This method will not get you that great crisp, browned layer.
Can you freeze breakfast sausage?
Yes! You can cook the sausage then freeze it. Or freeze it raw and cook it after it is thawed. I prefer to freeze it raw to prevent over cooking. Just be sure to separate patties with wax paper when freezing or they will stick together in one giant sausage patty!
What gives breakfast sausage its flavor?
This breakfast sausage recipe is fairly traditional. It is flavored with sage and fennel seeds. If you like a little heat, add some cayenne or red pepper flakes.
How do you make breakfast sausage patties?
Simple. Just mix the ingredients. Press mixture into a rimmed baking sheet lined with wax paper. Cut into round patties, then cook. Or you can form the patties by hand but I find it difficult to produce a uniform shape and thickness with this method.
What tools do you need for this recipe?

- Try not to over-mix the sausage ingredients. We don’t want super tough sausage patties.
- If you do not have a round cookie cutter, just use a cup to shape the patties.
