Paleo Breakfast Sausage Recipe

On paper, aromatic fennel seeds and sweet maple syrup don't seem like they'd go together, but breakfast sausage just wouldn't be the same without these key ingredients. Make your own with nothing but good-quality pork, lots of spices, and, for frying, good-for-you coconut oil. 

Paleo Breakfast Sausage

Yield: 4 to 6 servings
Active Time:

Ingredients

2 cloves garlic, minced
1 teaspoon sage leaves, minced
1 teaspoon Thrive Market Organic Fennel Seeds
1/4 teaspoon Thrive Market Organic Cayenne Pepper
1 teaspoon Thrive Market Organic Paprika
Zest of 1/2 lemon
1 tablespoon Thrive Market Organic Maple Syrup, Grade A
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon Thrive Market Organic Ground Pepper
1 pound Thrive Market Ground Pork
Thrive Market Organic Virgin Coconut Oil, for frying

Instructions

Stir together garlic, sage, fennel seeds, cayenne, paprika, lemon zest, maple syrup, salt, and ground pepper in a large bowl. Add ground pork and combine well, taking care not to overmix. Form into small round patties or cylindrical sausage links, roughly a finger’s length, with your hands.

Heat a tablespoon of coconut oil in skillet over medium-high heat. When skillet is hot, working in batches, brown sausages, then turn down heat to medium-low to cook through, roughly 4 minutes each side. Serve hot.
