Whole30 Garlic Herb & Apple Breakfast Sausage
There was a time and place in my life where Whole30 was exactly what I needed and wanted, it was the perfect way to move away from calorie counting and into a more natural way of eating. That being said; that time came to an end, but I still love eating the recipes that I came up with during that time. I love the idea of filling my plate with greens, veggies and protein, even if it also has a dash of cheese. These Garlic Herb & Apple Breakfast Sausage are an absolute show stopper and have amazing taste and texture and come together relatively quickly.
A bowl and your best cast iron skillet is all you need to have these protein packed goodies on the table and ready to be devoured. Mix all your ingredients into a bowl and then shape the sausage patties, making sure they are not too thick. Next add some avocado oil or butter to the caste iron skillet, or which ever skillet you prefer. Make sure you leave enough space in the pan and you don’t crowd the patties, this will ensure they all get cooked evenly.
Can you freeze these breakfast sausages?
Yes! These would be perfect to make for meal prep and have for the week. Once these are cooked be sure they are cooled completely, then you can lay them on a baking sheet and pop them in the freezer. Once they are completely frozen you can put them in a ziplock bag and keep them in the freezer until you need them.
What are these best served with?
Have you ever had an egg over easy? This is the perfect partner for an egg over easy, pure perfection. If eggs are not your jam another amazing mate is a bed of spinach sauteed in the pan after you have cooked these sausages. If you are not following Whole30 and just love these sausage patties like I do feel free to pair with a slice of cheese and an english muffin. Another great way to start the morning.
Fresh vs. dried herbs?
If you are able to use fresh ingredients, that’s always recommended for most recipes. Fresh herbs bring a depth that you can’t always reach with a dried herb. This being said, if dried is all you have, that works wonderful.

½ cup minced apples
¼ teaspoon rubbed sage
2 teaspoons dried parsley

- Bring a pan over medium high heat and spray with oil spray or a little drizzle of oil. Scoop chicken into small patties and press them down in the pan with the back of a spatula (if you put some oil on the back of the spatula it shouldn’t stick!). Cook for about 2 1/2 -3 minutes per side. Enjoy!
