Homemade Grass-Fed Breakfast Sausage with Quick Greens

Print

It’s sometimes difficult to find organic sausages so here’s a recipe to make your own. Freeze the additional patties for another day. Serve with fresh strawberries.

Further Food Commentary:

I’m glad Jillian took it upon herself to make her own organic sausage patties. Eating organic is better for the environment, the animals and all of us. Traditional sausages, especially non-organic, can be loaded with artificial colors and flavors. They are also unbearably high in fat and sodium. With only 1 teaspoon of salt to season the meat, these sausages are lower in sodium, but not lacking in the flavor department. This recipe gets a burst of flavor from the sage, thyme, pepper, cumin, garlic and onions. Cutting the beef with turkey also lowers the fat content. Pairing the sausage patties over a bed of greens boosts the fiber, iron, Vitamin A and Vitamin C content. Well done Jillian!
