Quick and Easy Sausage Patties
- 1 lb ground meat* (we used pork in the video)
- 1/4 teaspoon of each – cumin, basil, oregano, and thyme
- Dash of sea salt
Yields about 8 patties (4 servings). We recommend cooking up the whole pound and storing the leftover patties in the fridge for a few days or the freezer for later consumption.
Other spice suggestions: a dash of brown sugar, cinnamon, cayenne or red pepper flakes, minced or powdered garlic
Try pairing with starchier foods like sweet potatoes or beans as well as veggies like raw or steamed kale or spinach.
Each (pork) patty contains:
12 grams fat
9.5 grams protein
0 grams carbohydrate
*Make sure your meat doesn’t contain preservatives like nitrites or MSG and that the animals are raised without antibiotics or growth hormones. If using beef, lamb, or buffalo ensure that the animals were 100% grass fed, also called grass fed & grass finished.
Animals that are not grass finished are fed grass the majority of their lives and then fed corn the last 6 months to fatten them up. By the time the meat is butchered the cells have changed structure and are unhealthy to eat. Contrary to popular belief, cows are not meant to eat corn!*
