January 6, 2020

Whole30® breakfast sausage is guaranteed to make for a satisfying meal. Our homemade version is layered with spices such as thyme, garlic powder, fennel seeds, and sage, and it works for paleo, gluten-free, and ketogenic diets, too. Serve these patties alongside braised greens to start the day, or add roast butternut squash for a simple dinner.

Whole30® Breakfast Sausage With Braised Greens

Yield: 4 servings
Active Time: 20 minutes
Total Time: 40 minutes


For the sausage patties:
1 pound ground dark turkey meat
1 large shallot, grated
2 teaspoons Thrive Market Organic Fennel Seeds
1 teaspoon Thrive Market Organic Garlic Powder
1 teaspoon Thrive Market Organic Thyme
1 teaspoon Thrive Market Organic Sage
1 teaspoon sea salt
½ teaspoon Thrive Market Organic Ground Pepper
4 to 6 tablespoons Thrive Market Avocado Oil

For the braised greens:

2 tablespoons Thrive Market Avocado Oil
1 large onion, diced
1 ½ teaspoons sea salt, divided
2 bunches Swiss chard, leaves removed and torn into 2-inch pieces
1 teaspoon Thrive Market Organic Garlic Powder
½ teaspoon Thrive Market Organic Ground Pepper
1 tablespoon Thrive Market Organic Tomato Paste
1 cup water


Make the sausage patties:
Preheat oven to 375°F. Add all sausage ingredients except oil to a large bowl; mix with your hands until combined. Scoop ¼ cup of mixture into your hands and form into a patty; repeat with remaining mixture. Heat 4 tablespoons avocado oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add 4 patties and cook 1 to 2 minutes per side, or until golden; remove to a sheet tray. Repeat with remaining patties, adding more oil as needed. Warm in oven for 5 minutes.

Make the braised greens:
In the same skillet, add 2 tablespoons avocado oil over medium heat. Add onion and ½ teaspoon salt; sauté until soft, about 3 to 5 minutes. Add Swiss chard and toss until wilted; season with remaining teaspoon salt, garlic powder, and black pepper. Add tomato paste and water; stir. Place lid on pan and reduce heat to medium low; braise greens 5 to 7 minutes. To serve, plate sausage patties with braised greens alongside.
