Breakfast Sausage Patties

Home Made Breakfast Sausage

Easy and so good- the best part? You know exactly what’s in them.

You’ll Need:
• 1 lb ground pork
• 2 teaspoons dried sage
• 1 teaspoon dried marjoram
• 1 teaspoon brown sugar
• 1 teaspoon kosher salt
• 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
• 1/2 teaspoon granulated garlic
• ¼ teaspoon dried thyme
• pinch cayenne
• 2 tablespoons cold water

You’ll Do:
Combine all in a mixing bowl, using either an electric mixer or your own impeccably clean hands. Pinch off a teaspoon and form into a patty, fry it up and test for seasonings. I like mine with more sage and a some more zip- ground chipotle is a nice addition. Make the patties biscuit size, and the renderings in the fry pan make a great base for gravy. Hot, fresh brewed coffee is the quaff of choice here. Make these and you won’t go back to store-bought.

Okay, I’m home. One pound of fresh breakfast sausage comin’ up ASAP.


Mrs. J is wondering what kind of ground pork do you mean? Would that be the same as the packages of pork which can be sliced off and easily made into patties, such as the Jimmy Dean premium pork sausage? Other than chocolate, few pictures look so good as this one shown. Thanks.


He’s talking about packages of ground pork, sold just like ground beef. NOT the sausage – you are using the ground pork to make your own sausage.

Or you could grind your own pork, of course.


Sounds good. Very, very good. Nitrates and the unpronounceable stuff in commercial products makes homemade a must do for anyone with food sensitivities or other concerns.

Gonna have to try this very soon. Maybe add just a touch of slightly crushed fennel. And make several pounds worth, freeze some in patties and a bit in bulk for future use both as patties and for gravy.

Would you recommend mixing it up the night before to allow the flavors to mingle a bit? (After practically memorizing Barnwood Builders and Maine Cabin Masters episodes, boredom set in and watching cooking shows has expanded the vocabulary, if not actual cooking skills.)


Good ideas. Thanks to y’all. The Mrs. has picked up
several good recipes off this site. It’s her Food Chanel site without the commercials.


Num, num, num! Let me get a pan of cat heads going. Temps have dropped just about enough to almost consider getting intimate with my oven again. Having a cold snap here, hasn’t hit 90 just yet.

Nuttin’ like a breakfast sausage patty in a hot cat head. Unless, of course, it’s crumbled up sausage patties floating in a skillet full of gravy ladled on top of that cat head.

Tanks Bro, you had given this before, a goodly while back and I didn’t keep up with it. Had to do a double take reading thru the list to realize that it called for MARJORAM…NOT…Maryjane. Whew!!!


A hot cat head with a large sausage patty, what better breakfast is there? Used to do Maryjane brownies, but Maryjane sausage, that’s a funny thought. That would be the one breakfast where a couple dozen home made chocolate chip cookies would be the desert. I remember once another stoner and myself put an entire lid in a single batch of brownies. Of course we were loaded at the time. But when cooked, it was like trying to eat straw. Thanks for waking some forgotten pleasures of the late 60’s and very early 70’s. Cheech & Chong were the ones we could listen to over and over, with orange sunshine barrels being the driver. Good times for sure.

Thank you from the bottom of my heart and the top of my full tummy. Breakfast sausage is the only food that can come close to bacon for favoriteness. Yes, that’s a word when we’re talking breakfast meats. Bacon still wins for versatility as I haven’t come up with a cookie with sausage, but I do have a recipe for bacon cookies that can turn a vegan into a carnivore.

Oh noble pig, you have once again fulfilled my life.

Don’t toy with me, I think I just fell in love.

I have ice cream, a pig shaped bacon press AND a cookie cutter. Plus a full tank of gas and a 1950 Road Atlas. 😉 😛

Oh my, be still my heart.

But you must love dogs. I love dogs and am a dog-owned human.

The more I learned about people, the more I love my dogs. Down to only two rescued K9s right now. Chapman is a fuzzy black and white senior Parti-Poodle and Trixie Girl is a blond doe eyed long legged wanna be bird/hound dog.

Did I make mention that I’ve had all my shots and know which position to leave a toilet seat in?
