Quick-N-Easy Breakfast Sausage Patties (gluten/nightshade free, AIP/paleo)

Here’s a quick and easy recipe to make your own breakfast sausage patties!

I prefer to make my own sausage while on the Autoimmune Protocol because, this way, I’m in complete control of the ingredients and their quality. I get to use the highest quality organic spices I can get my hands on, organic/pasture raised pork (practically unheard of quality in premade sausages), and uncured/sugar free/gluten free bacon.

I made this travel friendly recipe before heading up to Brianhead, Utah for a much needed mini vacation. When on the strict phase of the Autoimmune Protocol, being prepared is key to sticking with the program. So for trips in the car, I recommend always prepping the essentials. This way your cooking time is at a minimum when you arrive at your destination. 

Not only are these sausage patties delicious, but they’re super portable and a sinch to put together! You can even freeze them raw and make them fresh each morning! I like to make a huge batch of them and freeze the extra for quick breakfasts when I’m in a pinch! But don’t be surptised if you can’t get them to last that long lol 

This recipe is Autoimmune Protocol (AIP) friendly, gluten free, grain free, nightshade free, egg free, nut free, dairy free, paleo, primal, lower carb, & keto friendly.

What Makes this High-Vibing Food?

  • First and foremost, putting your own love, gratitude, time and energy into making foods at home will automatically raise the vibration of the foods/meal. This will also help to balance your sacral and heart chakras. Putting your love into the food you prepare will literally raise the vibrational frequency as love is the highest vibration out there!

  • You are what you eat and what your food eats. Using organic, GMO free, free/pasture raised, wild caught, minimally processed ingredients lead to an overall higher vibrational frequency. Basically, eating organic provides us extra energy currency!

  • This dish is rich in protein, which is grounding and protective. It also supports the root chakra.

  • Contains zinc, which is needed for thousands of chemical reactions in your body involving protein, so it is also supportive to the root chakra.

  • This recipe is full of healthy fats and oilswhich supports the sacral chakra.

  • Contains yellow/tan/golden colored foods, which help raise the body’s frequency to that of the solar plexus, helping to balance it.

A Short Note on Swaps or Ingredients:

*While I cannot guarantee that using these swaps will yield the same flavors I have create in this recipe, these swaps should generally work well! *

  • Use the Breakfast Sausage Spice if you're senstive to nightshades or in the strict phase of the AIP. You can use it even if you're not sensitive to nightshades, but you can also use a premed organic breakfast sausage seasoning if you'd like!

  • Not into pork? No problem! You can swap the pork for any other ground meat!

Equipment Needed to Create this Recipe:

  • large mixing bowl

  • spatula

Quick-N-Easy Breakfast Sausage Patties

(gluten free, nightshade free, & AIP/paleo)

Prep time: 5-10 minutes Cook time: 10 minutes Yield: 6 (about 18 patties total)


  • 1 lb. organic, pasture raised ground pork 

  • ½ pack of Pederson Farms Uncured, sugar free bacon, chopped

  • 3 tbsp. Breakfast Sausage Spice (see recipe HERE

  • Bacon fat, for cooking (or alternative fat, but the bacon fat adds sooo much flavor!) 

How to Create this Recipe:

  1. First, you’ll need to make the breakfast sausage spice. Follow the link provided for that. Then set it aside.

  2. Next, you’ll want to cut your bacon into little bits. This is easiest if the bacon is slightly frozen. 

  3. Then, grab a large bowl and add the ground pork and bacon. Mix until incorporated. Follow this by sprinkling 3 tbsp. of breakfast sausage spice over the meat mixture. Stir until evenly distributed. It is easiest and most efficient to do this with your hands!

  4. Once the meat is ready, form into small patties that fit within the palm of your hand. I ended up with 18. 

  5. Then, heat a cast iron skillet, or another heavy bottomed skillet, on medium-high heat. Add the bacon fat to the pan. Once heated, and working in rounds, add the raw sausage patties. Cook for about 3-4 minutes per side, or until crispy and brown on the outside and thouroughly cooked on the inside. Let the patties sit on a paper towel lined plate to remove excess grease. And that’s all! 

  6. Alternatively, you can freeze these after step four and cook them fresh each morning. Or freeze them after step 5 and reheat them in the same way you cooked them, but for less time. 

  7. Hope you all enjoy these quick and easy Breakfast Sausage Patties!!
