Paleo-friendly breakfast sausage has a nice, mild flavor; kick up the heat if you want by adding a few red pepper flakes or some cayenne.

Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Place ground pork in a large bowl. Combine salt, turmeric, sage, oregano, black pepper, paprika, and marjoram in a small bowl. Sprinkle half of the seasonings over the pork. Mix well with your hands or a wooden spoon to combine. Sprinkle remaining seasonings onto the pork and mix until evenly distributed.

  • Cover bowl with plastic wrap and refrigerate, 8 hours to overnight.

  • Scoop out 1/4 cup of the chilled pork mixture at a time and shape into patties.

  • Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Cook patties until no longer pink in the center and browned, about 4 minutes per side.

Cook's Note:

Don't overdo the sage or the marjoram; when I've done that in past iterations it really dries out the pork. If you are serving a small army just double everything!

Tasty but super salty (I am a salt lover). I even used over a pound of ground pork but the salt is really just too much so next time I will def cut that back by at least 1/2. Other than that this had really nice flavor...I also added in 1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes for a bit of spice and that was the perfect amount for us. I rolled mine into balls and baked them @ 350 degrees for about 15-20 minutes. The family enjoyed these and I would def make them again (reducing the salt of course). Thanks for sharing.:) Read More

if i would have followed this blindly it would have been way too salty.. this was more of a 3.5 recipe.. Turkey Breakfast Sausage (on this site) is my go-to recipe but i wanted to try something different.. i used ground turkey for the pork.. cut the salt in half.. used ground sage for the dried and quartered the amount.. bf said it was okay but likes Turkey Breakfast Sausage more.. ty for something different Read More

So thankful for this recipe! Just started Paleo and breakfast is the most confounding. These sausages are a lifesaver! They're delicious and portable. I didn't have any turmeric which was a bummer because I really liked the nice color in the picture. I also put them in the oven at 350 for 20 minutes because I wasn't patient enough to fry them up. Bravo! Will make again for sure. Read More

Good recipe. I only use 1/2 tsp of salt and would recommend omitting the turmeric as it stinks up the house when cooking the sausage. Read More
