I feel like I am always talking about how amazing homemade sausage patties are–they make a perfect quick breakfast solution, protein snack, or emergency meal. I always have at least one type in my freezer for easy meals. If you feel like your time on the autoimmune protocol has you spending all your quality time in the kitchen, let me change your life–make a batch of these, a batch of and give it a home in your freezer and you will be good to go for breakfasts for WEEKS!
To freeze, I like to place in a container between slices of wax paper so that they don’t stick together. I pop one in the skillet in the morning on low, along with whatever vegetables I have leftover from the night before. Add a mug of broth and a scoop of sprouts, or perhaps half an avocado or a piece of fruit and you have a pretty amazing, nutrient-dense breakfast!
PREP TIME - 20 MINS COOK TIME - 20 MINS TOTAL TIME - 40 MINS
Here's What You Need...
1 pound grass-fed ground beef
1 pound pastured ground pork
1 tablespoon minced fresh oregano
1 tablespoon minced fresh thyme
1 tablespoon minced fresh parsley (optional)
½ teaspoon garlic powder
½ teaspoon sea salt
1 tablespoon solid cooking fat (coconut oil, lard, tallow, or duck fat)
Place the ground beef, pork, herbs, garlic powder and salt in a large bowl and combine well with your hands. Form into 8-10 patties and place on a plate.
Heat the solid cooking fat in the bottom of a cast-iron skillet or frying pan on medium heat. When the fat is melted and the pan is hot, add patties, cook 10 minutes a side, or until thoroughly cooked. You may have to do this in two batches. Alternately, you can bake them at 400 degrees for 20 minutes or until they are cooked throughout.
Variation: Feel free to switch up the protein in these--you can make them 100% beef or pork, or add some lamb into the mix!
