Since March, I’ve been playing with adding more meat into my diet. It’s been kind of hit or miss. Breakfast and lunch are the best times for me to eat meat, usually with little or no carbs. Yes, including whole grains.
Most of my recent breakfasts have included a smoothie and (mostly boiled) eggs. It’s kind of my default until I get tired of it and decide to try something different!
The week before last, a friend introduced me to this (*coughs*) paleo (*coughs*) blog.
Great Breakfast Sandwiches
“Why didn’t I think to do this? And I have a breakfast sausage recipe!” I said before body rolling in front of my laptop and adding ground turkey to my grocery list.
I love this book (Amazon Associates link). I don’t agree with all of it BUT I was intrigued by quite a few recipes. One of them was Mom’s Turkey Breakfast Sausage on page 82. These sausage patties are delicious and they don’t have any fillers or preservatives! Also, sage! 🙂
Note: I used Kerrygold Unsalted (grassfed cow’s) Butter instead of EVOO. Also, I used 1 pound of turkey so I ended up with 7.5 patties.
For this recipe, she uses a cookie cutter to cook the eggs. I tried that once. It didn’t go well. And it defeats the purpose of a quick breakfast (for me). I got the idea to use a Whoopie Pie Pan (Amazon Associate link) from this post! Here’s how it works:
Crack up to 10 whole eggs to a large bowl. If your eggs are huge or you’re adding vegetables, 8 is probably enough.
Add whatever you like to season your eggs: spices, vegetables, whatever. I used kosher salt, black pepper, and garlic powder. Green onions (and cheese) would have been nice too.
Whisk lightly OR break the yolks. I’ve tried it both ways, as long as the yolks are broken, it should be fine.
Pour into your Whoopie Pie Pan. I use a funnel because it slows the mixture down, preventing spills.
Add pan to a preheated 350 degree oven. Bake for 15-20 minutes. Let cool and refrigerate.
Each morning, pop two eggs and one sausage patty into the microwave for 30 seconds. Make your sandwich and EAT!
Both the sausage and eggs were easy to make. Plus only 30 seconds each morning? You can’t get much quicker than that! I’ll probably make this until I get tired of it. LOL!
Note: If you prefer using English muffins, I like Food For Life’s Ezekiel or Trader Joe’s Whole Wheat English Muffins.
