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!
Chicken Breakfast Sausage - Bariatric Recipes
- 1 lb ground chicken ground turkey okay
- 1 cup diced apple ex: Fuji
- 1 tbsp dried thyme
- 3 tbsp chopped fresh parsley
- 2 tbsp dried oregano
- 1 clove garlic, pressed or minced
- 1 tsp each salt and pepper
- Heat oven to 425 F. Add apples, thyme, parsley and oregano to a skillet on medium high heat. Add garlic, salt and pepper. Heat for about 6 minutes until apples are soft. Remove from heat and let cool.
- Add ground chicken to a mixing bowl. Add apple mixture and combine well.
- Form 12 balls of the meat (I used a cookie scoop) and place on a large baking sheet. Then mash the ball down on the cookie sheet to make it a thin patty.
- Bake for 25 minutes. Remove from oven and let cool slightly. Serve immediately or put in the refrigerator for a fast breakfast!
