Prep Time 5 minutes
Cook Time 10 minutes
Servings 10 patties


  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp ground sage
  • ¼ tsp red pepper flake
  • ¼ tsp fennel seed
  • ¼ tsp thyme
  • ¼ tsp marjoram
  • 1 lb. ground pork turkey, or chicken
  • 1 tbsp olive oil or bacon grease or avocado oil


  • Mix all seasonings together in a small bowl.
  • In a large bowl, pat dry the meat with a paper towel to remove water.
  • Sprinkle the seasoning mixture a little at a time onto the ground meat and mix thoroughly until all seasoning is incorporated. Take care not to over work the meat or it may turn tough.
  • Use as you would normally use sausage in any dish.
  • If making breakfast sausage patties, preheat a large skillet over medium heat. Add fat of choice.
  • Form patties into 2-3 inch round disks. Place each patty into the hot skillet and cook on one side a few minutes until well browned. When it develops a golden color, flip to the other side.
  • Continue to cook until the internal temperature reaches 160 degrees F. If the outside is burning and the inside is still under done, lower the heat and place a lid on the skillet.


To freeze, form patties and place into air tight storage container or freezer bag with parchment paper separating the layers. Keeps for several months.
