I will NEVER again buy store bought, chemically treated, frozen hockey pucks again! Who knew making your own breakfast sausage was so easy? I sure didn’t! (Psst, we eat this for dinner too…) El yummo!
This recipe comes from the Nom Nom Paleo: Food for Humans Cookbook by Michelle Tam and Henry Fong. If you don’t want to get the book right now, here is her blog.
2 lbs.- ground pork
2 Tbsp.- maple syrup (100% real, or else it’s garbage.)
1 Tbsp.- kosher salt
1 tsp.- ground pepper
2 tsp.- fresh or ground sage, ( I didn’t have this on hand at the time, and they were still fab.)
1 tsp.- fresh or ground thyme
1/2 tsp.- fresh or ground rosemary
1/2 tsp. ancho chili powder. – ( I didn’t have this either, so I used regular… still delish!)
2 Tbsp.- ghee or butter- to fry them in.
Add all the ingredients in a large bowl and mix with your hands. Don’t mix too much or else the patties can become tough
Melt your ghee or butter over medium-low heat
Make into 2 inch round balls and flatten
Fry on each side till golden brown, then cover and finish until no longer pink inside.
Bonus: Make these patties with eggs or all kinds of other breakfast foods and then make yourself and your guests a Bullet Proof Coffee. They won’t ever want to leave your home. 🙂
1 large mug full of any type of coffee
1 pat- butter (Grass fed is best. I use and love Kerrygold.)
1 tsp.- coconut oil (organic is best).
Pour your large mug of hot coffee into a blender
Add your pat of butter and coconut oil
Spin me ’round and ’round and ’round, like a record baby… (oh… sorry!)
Pour back into your mug, add any sweetener you typically use and well… drink!
This coffee is good for weight loss (because it makes you poop), appetite suppression (it’s filling) and your memory! Whaaat? I said, YOUR MEMORY, remember? LOL! 😉
