Ground Chicken Breakfast Sausage

During the holidays I had some time to experiment with a few new recipes and this one really was a great hit with my family.

I am a firm believer that breakfast is the best meal of the day. One of the foods we stopped eating on our journey to healthier living was breakfast sausage but that has come to an end since I did some experimenting in the kitchen. Breakfast sausage is typically made from pork and has way to much animal fat in my opinion to even think about being consumed occasionally much less more often.

Here is what I came up with made with 100% ground chicken, no fillers, and simply added spices that most people will have in their homes. Give it a try and see what you think.

Ground Chicken Breakfast Sausage

1lb. of ground chicken

1 tsp. sage

dash of oregano

dash of red pepper flakes

1 tsp. salt

1/2 tsp. black pepper

Mix these spices into the ground chicken until combined. Refrigerate this mixture for at least two hours or overnight like I did.

Over medium heat in a sprayed, nonstick pan gentle scoop roughly formed patties. Cook for about 12-15 minutes(depending on the size of your patties).

One pound of chicken made approx. 10-12 patties for my family.
