These breakfast sausages make a great healthy alternative to pork sausage. Growing up I was always a sausage girl. When faced with both bacon and sausage at the breakfast table, I?d reach for the sausage every time. The past 5 or 6 years as I?ve begun eating healthier, I really thought I had left the world of sausage patties behind. Sure I love turkey bacon as a healthy alternative, but it didn?t replace my longing to smell that wonderful aroma of sausage cooking at breakfast time. These chicken sausages have filled that void! I?m pretty sure I?ll be whipping these up pretty frequently so that I always have them on hand. My only addition to this recipe was fennel seeds, as I really love the aromatic flavor you get from them.

Recipe Ingredients for Chicken Breakfast Sausage

1 lb. ground chicken
1/2 tsp. dried sage
1/2 tsp. dried marjoram
1/2 tsp. dried thyme
1/4 tsp. ground cayenne pepper
1/4 tsp. ground allspice
1/4 tsp fennel seeds (my addition)
1/4 tsp. freshly ground black pepper
3/4 tsp. kosher salt
1 clove garlic clove, finely mincced or pressed
1/2 tbsp. maple syrup
2 tsp. olive oil

Recipe Directions for Chicken Breakfast Sausage

  1. Lightly mix all ingredients together until the herbs/spices are well incorporated ? make sure you don?t over mix!

  2. Divide the mixture into 4 equal parts, and then make 4 (or 2, for 2-oz. patties) patties from each part.

  3. Heat a nonstick pan over medium heat and add 1 tsp. of oil. Put 1/3 or 1/2 of the patties (depending how big your pan is and how much space your patties take up) into the pan and cook about 2 minutes per side or until browned and cooked through. Repeat with the next 1-2 batches, adding an additional teaspoon of olive oil per batch.

  4. *Ground chicken breast will make a leaner patty, but dark (or a mixture of white and dark) meat will make a tastier patty.
