Breakfast Sausage

This tastes exactly like the typical breakfast sausage patty you get at any fast-food restaurant, and it’s awesome.

Update: I’ve made this with Impossible Beef and it works very well. Might want to add a little bit more salt to compensate.


  • Functioning Hands
    • Hey, if you have prosthetics that have “Go-Go-Gadget Spatula” attachments or some crazy shit, more power to you, I’m just working with what I know.
  • Sauté or frying pan


  • 2 lbs ground pork
  • 2 tsp dried sage
  • 2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp ground black pepper
  • 1/4 tsp dried marjoram
  • 1 TBS brown sugar
  • 1/8 tsp crushed red pepper flakes
  • 1 small pinch ground cloves (the bud, not the stem)


  1. In a small, bowl, combine the sage, salt, ground black pepper, marjoram, brown sugar, crushed red pepper and cloves.
  2. Place the pork in a large bowl and add the mixed spices to it. Mix well with your hands and form into patties.
  3. In a sauté pan or cast iron skillet, set to Med-High heat and cook the patties until crispy brown and internal temp is at least 155F (the heat will carry over to 160 after you remove them).


  • If you make the patties about 3 inches diameter by .5″ thick, they’ll reliable cook in about 5min per side. They’ll also fit on a buttermilk biscuit 🙂
  • DO NOT overload the pan. There should be about 1″ separating each patty. Work in batches.
