  1. Mix all ingredients together and chill in the refrigerator for at least an hour or so. This allows the flavors to blend.

  2. Form the chilled meat into small patties and cook on the stovetop in a frypan until cooked through.

  3. Time saving tip: Make a bunch of homemade breakfast sausage patties ahead of time to freeze for quick breakfasts on the go! Separate patties in the storage container using parchment paper.

  4. Refrigerate any leftovers. They will be good to reheat and enjoy for several days.

Recipe Notes

If using ground pork for this recipe, it is best to marinate in 1 cup of apple cider vinegar for 1 hour in the refrigerator first. Dry the marinated meat thoroughly with paper towels or a clean dishtowel before proceeeding.

Ground turkey may be substituted for the ground pastured pork as desired. Ground turkey does not require marinating.

Ghee may be substituted for the butter.
