Melt 1 tablespoon of cooking fat in a warm skillet.
Cook onions for approximately 5 minutes, until soft.
Form into approximately 20 patties and set on parchment paper or a clean dish.
Place coconut flour on a plate and lightly coat each patty by pressing into coconut flour and flipping over, then pressing again.
Tap off any excess flour.
Warm skillet over medium heat, adding more cooking fat if needed.
Cook 4 to 6 patties at a time (depending on the size of your pan).
Cook for approximately 10 minutes per side, until cooked through.
Serve immediately or set aside to cool (if freezing).
Make this breakfast sausage with ground pork, turkey, or chicken. You may use more than one type of meat in the recipe. For example, two pounds of pork and one pound turkey work well.
If you have a meat grinder, use it! I purchase ground meat from the store (pastured meat is preferred), but if you have a meat grinder, it is wonderful to grind your own. Pork butt is often the favorite cut for homemade sausage using a meat grinder.
You don't have to coat the patties in coconut flour, but I highly recommend it. It adds extra crispiness which is truly delightful.
Can I use powdered garlic and onion in this recipe? Yes, you can. The flavor of the sauteed onions is a delicious addition, but if you don’t have the time or desire for that, feel free to use 2 teaspoons onion powder and 1 teaspoon powdered garlic
Serving Suggestions: Serve breakfast sausage patties alongside greens and/or roasted or sauteed sweet potatoes for a great egg-free breakfast.
They also make a wonderful lunch. (I love adding two patties to a bowl of salad for a simple, healthy lunchtime meal.)
