Chicken Breakfast Sausage

Bariatric friendly breakfast recipe with no eggs: chicken breakfast sausage patties

Yes, you can make your own breakfast sausage!

Did you know it’s actually quite easy to make your own breakfast sausage? You can also get even better flavors than the prepackaged varieties AND cut your fat content down.

Bariatric surgery patients – this is perfect for your breakfast dilemma! Especially if you can’t stand eggs…but it does pair well with eggs if that’s no problem for you :)

These patties reheat wonderfully so save them in the fridge or even the freezer and enjoy them through the week.

I’ve seen several recipes which means you can get creative! Swap out apple for jalapeno! I feel this is genius! For one, the cost savings of making your own breakfast sausage is great. Secondly, the freshness of these ingredients and flavors is incredibly noticeable. Third, even turkey sausage always seems to have a bit of grease to it or feels too processed or high in sodium for me to feel real confident in the choice.

But this meal feels incredibly healthy. I know exactly what’s going into the pot and the flavor and texture is phenomenal! I highly recommend making these and serving with eggs. We’ve had them the past few mornings and are happy campers!

For another egg free breakfast idea still focused on protein, try these bariatric friendly protein pancakes!

  1. Hello, are calorie counts accessible for recipes on this site? Maybe they are there somewhere and I am missing them? Thank you

  2. @Allison I apologize for my delay in responding!!! Many of the recipes in our new format will have calories. The recipes in our older format show only macros as that’s my style of coaching. I do have a large spreadsheet of all my recipes with the calorie counts included that members can request that I email them. I hope that helps and sorry I lost this comment!

  3. I love this because I can’t eat pork or eggs and this is a great option for me as most bariatric breakfast recipes consist of either or both of these ingredients.
