Gluten-Free Chicken Breakfast Sausage

Some like 'em thick, some like 'em thin and crispy (that would be me)—either way, here is a tasty recipe for DIY chicken breakfast sausage patties.

I'll admit, I'm not always on top of it in the morning.

It's the one meal I am apt to cop out on—pour a bowl of buckwheat cereal and call it good.

That said, I've really noticed a difference in me and the boys when we start our day with some protein. Miles does not do eggs or dairy which makes it a bit challenging. But meat—well, meat he loves.

This recipe is for DIY breakfast sausage. I'm a little over high-fat pork sausage right now and was hoping to come up with a leaner version that was free of any additives and gluten.

Paired with a green smoothie and we're off to a good start.

Oh and you really might like my mess-free, make-ahead method for making and freezing the patties. Huge time-saver for me.

PREP TIME: 10 minutes
COOK TIME: 10-20 minutes


12 ounces organic ground CHICKEN
1 tablespoon GRAPESEED OIL
2 teaspoons granulated ONION
1 teaspoon granulated GARLIC
1 teaspoon Cholula HOT SAUCE
1/2 teaspoon ground SAGE
1/2 teaspoon SALT
1/2 teaspoon WHITE PEPPER
1/4 teaspoon ground ALLSPICE


Combine all ingredients. Form into patties using wet hands and fry in a swirl of grapseed oil until browned and cooked through.

Make-Ahead Freezer Option: Line a flat cookie sheet with unbleached parchment (or freezer paper). Scoop 2-3 tablespoon mounds, 3-4 inches apart, onto cookie sheet. Place a layer of parchment on top. Flatten into patties using the bottom of a glass (I make mine quite thin). Transfer to freezer. When frozen, peel back layers of parchment and transfer frozen patties to airtight storage container and return to freezer. Double the batch to really stock up.

These sound awsome! I really need to make a batch for the freezer. You know how Sophia is an immediate gratification kinda girl. Especially when it comes to breakfast. Xo

Wow, that looks sooo good, Lexie! :-) I must have protein for breakfast and sadly, I don't do well with eggs by themselves and not baked, so meat is the best option. Thanks, dear!

I LOVE making homemade sausage. My husband gets to grind the meat (he adores the meat grinder he bought last year) and the main recipe I use is similar to yours. I use nutmeg rather than allspice though. Will have to try that alternative.

I'm going to switch this around and call it a chicken burger. Sounds like a wonderful dinner. I'm not a big meat person and a small burger with a side of roasted sweet potatoes and a big salad sounds wonderful to me. It never entered my mind to make a burger (or sausage patty) out of chicken. It's always turkey or pork. You've inspired me to try this, but I think I'll save it for dinner. =)

Wonderful stuff over here at Lexie's Kitchen. Need to go check out that potato crusted cod. Wow, that looks amazing as well.

I love homemade sausage and this recipe looks great. I'll have to add it to my rotation for sure!
