Whole30 Breakfast Sausage (Whole30 Paleo Keto) – clean eating is simple with this easy homemade breakfast sausage recipe. Great for freezing too!
Homemade breakfast sausage is incredibly easy to make, can be made with your favorite ground meat, and fits perfectly with a Paleo/Whole30 diet. While I love the flavor of sausage, I’m not a big fan of greasy, heavy meats. Also, most store bought sausage contains sugar, which is a big no-no on Whole3o. Given this and knowing my family’s love of sausage for breakfast, I decided to try a homemade version, keeping within Whole30 guidelines. The result was fantastic! This recipe tastes like the real thing, just a bit on the lighter side. No sugar or junk added – just ground turkey and spices!
This sausage is a welcome addition to my typical breakfast of eggs and fruit. I’m one who loves routine and can eat the same thing everyday, but changing it up sure is nice too! One complaint I hear often about Whole30 is the boredom that comes with eating the same foods over and over. My advice is to be brave and pick a new recipe to add to the rotation – just make it a simple one!
For this round of Whole30, I’ve made a conscious effort to keep my meals and meal prep as simple as possible. Which means nothing fancy or complicated. Just food that is simple to prepare and that my family loves. The new cookbook, Whole30 Fast & Easy, is a great resource for this!
This recipe can be easily doubled or tripled, making it a great addition to your weekly meal prep session (read more about the importance of that here) and added as needed to your breakfast meals. The patties freeze nicely and can be defrosted and warmed quickly. For another variation, try ground chicken or pork!
