Sage Breakfast Sausage, SCD and Paleo

In my quest to remove white sugars and corn syrup from my diet I have yet to find a breakfast sausage with neither. Even the "made in store" sausages at Whole Foods contain sugar. I found my local supermarket sells fresh ground pork for under $3.00 a pound, with no additives so I tried making my own. I found I like to be able to control the salt and seasonings.

Sage Breakfast Sausage (SCD and Paleo)

1 lb ground Pork
3/4 tsp. rubbed sage
1 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. poultry seasoning
1/2 tsp. freshly ground black pepper
1/4-1/2 tsp. ground cayenne pepper

1. In a medium sized bowl thoroughly combine all ingredients mixing with your hands ( I like to wear latex gloves for this).
2. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate at least 1 hour and up to 24 hours.
3.Remove from refrigerator and taking 4 T. of meat shape into small patties.
4. Fry over medium low heat turning every 3-4 minutes until thoroughly cooked (there should be no pink in the middle).
5. Serve immediately.


  1. Yum! I want to make this -- now. You are a great cook.

  2. That's a really great idea. And that looks really good. I'm going to have to try that.

  3. Hello, I was wondering what brand you use for poultry seasoning. I know on the SCD there are virtually no broths you can get that are legal, so the idea of poultry seasoning appeals to me. Thanks for the recipe!

  4. Hi Lindsay,
    I use San Francisco Herb Company for all my herbs and spices. Check out their website, they list all ingredients in their mixes.

    Thanks for the comment!
