These morning or breakfast sausages are consumed at almost any time of day or night. Breakfast for dinner is a great pass time. These sausages are the star of this plate, but I don’t shape them into stars too often – too much work. Most of the time, they’re just round and flattened.
My kids eat these straight up on a fork, but they can be dipped in sauce (ketchup, most likely), and combined with waffles, pancakes, or scrambled cheesy eggs and some fresh fruit salad.
- 1 pound of ground meat (turkey, chicken or pork)
- 1/2 teaspoon of sea salt
- 1/2 teaspoon of fennel
- 1/2 teaspoon of thyme
- 1/4 teaspoon of garlic
- 1/4 teaspoon of allspice
- 1/4 teaspoon of cloves
- 1/4 teaspoon of nutmeg
- drizzle of honey (or maple syrup – not SCD legal)
- dash of pepper (optional)
- Combine all the ingredients in a bowl and blend by hand until well seasoned throughout.
- Preheat a frying or saucepan over a stove on a low to medium heat.
- Shape the sausages into flat patties or other shapes, and cook about 5 to 7 minutes on each side. I wait until they are well-browned on one side before flipping them over to the other side.
- Place each patty on a paper towel over a plate.
- Enjoy! I store the left overs in a sealed container to be reheated another time. Quite often I make these the night before so they are ready for breakfast at 6:00 AM!
OMFG these are so tasty! THANK YOU! Mine did turn out a little dry… would an egg help? Or I think I might have been too agressive in browning them…
Sure – you can add egg, but yeah, you might have cooked them a bit too much.
oops forgot to give you the link
I wanted to let you know that I included a link to this recipe on my blog. I hope it’s ok!
Thanks for all of your delicious recipes and inspiration!
These look awesome! I’ve got an “Egg Stretching Carnival” going on at my site and I’m looking for GAPS/SCD legal breakfasts that don’t require a lot of eggs (because November is a low-production month for eggs). Please come share this recipe! 🙂 http://www.wellfedhomestead.com/2010/11/18/egg-stretching-carnival/
I’m excited to find this recipe (and your site in general — I’m new to SCD). I never eat sausages because of all the additives, and it hadn’t occured to me to make them at home. This looks delish.. Thank you!
Fennel the spice is legal. You can grind it to a powder for recipes. Once you see improvements you can use it crushed.
Hi Carol – yes, maple syrup is not SCD. Thanks! (and thanks for Pecanbread.com – it’s a great resource).
By the way, for others reading this, you will need to check that a recipe is SCD legal – most are or can be, but make sure you can handle the ingredients that are called for, or substitute where necessary.

Oh I am so happy to see this too! I have never made it but now that I am grain-free, I would like to add this to my repertoire. The stuff in the stores is full of garbage. Thanks!
Yes, this took a bit of experimentation, but it was worth it. They get the nod of approval.
I’m glad to see a recipe for sausage. I have been trying to do one myself but it turns out too bland. I never thought to try allspice, cloves and nutmeg. Yumm.
