My favorite meal of the day has always been breakfast! I love starting my day off with a big, nourishing, and filling plate of food to get my day going. On the weekend, I love making some Birch Bender paleo waffles or Simple Mills paleo pancakes with two eggs and Applegate chicken and sage breakfast sausage. I love that sausage, but what I’m not too much of a fan of is that it contains cane sugar. Even though it does have cane sugar, I still kept buying it because it is such a minimal amount of sugar. I really wanted to come up with a chicken and sage sausage recipe with NO sugar in it the I could enjoy all the time. I got my butt in the kitchen, added some herbs and spices to ground chicken, and voila! These taste absolutely delicious and are full of that herby sage flavor!
You only need a few ingredients to make this recipe. You know what else I love about these breakfast sausage patties? You can freeze them! All you need to do is cook the patties, let them cool, freeze them in a single layer, then place them in a storage bag and store them in your freezer. You can easily reheat them in a skillet at medium-high heat, in the oven, or in the microwave. Make a big batch of these and keep them in your freezer that way you never run out!

*Makes about 10 small patties
- avocado oil
- 1 lb. ground chicken
- 2 tbsp fresh chopped sage
- 1/2 tsp garlic powder
- 1/4 tsp white pepper (sub black pepper if you don’t have white pepper)
- himalayan salt, to taste
- Heat a skillet over medium-high heat.
- While the skillet is heating, add all of the ingredients, except the avocado oil, into a medium sized bowl and mix until well incorporated.
- Grab a small amount of the mixture, about 1 – 2 tbsp, and flatten it into a little patty.
- Repeat with the rest of the mixture. You can place the patties onto a piece of parchment paper or a plate while you cook up the patties.
- Add enough avocado oil to coat the bottom of the pan and place a few of the patties in the skillet, without overcrowding the skillet. Let cook for about 5 minutes on each side, or until cooked through.
- Devour them immediately or let them cool and freeze them for another day!
*Tip: If you’re unsure if you seasoned the patties enough, take a tiny amount of the mixture, place in the skillet until cooked through, and taste it! If it needs more seasoning, add more, and vice versa.
