My family and I love breakfast sausage and making it at home are super easy. We don’t eat pork so oftentimes we make our own using beef, bison, lamb, chicken, or turkey. Using a homemade breakfast seasoning mix that makes your meat patties taste like sausage, this easy, delicious, and comforting breakfast can be made at any time. Served with scrambled eggs, buttered toast, and or fried plantains and orange juice! 

Key ingredients in these ground beef sausage patties

All ingredients, measurements, and instructions are in the recipe card at the bottom of this post.

Ground beef – You could also use bison! Try to find good quality meat. We usually opt for organic or pasture-raised meat without any hormones or antibiotics. 

Sausage seasoning mix – I make mine from scratch. I’ll link my recipe here! I use 3 tablespoons of this seasoning mix per pound of meat. You could also use a store-bought seasoning if you like!

Oil – used for frying the sausage patties. We usually buy 90% lean beef, so I cook the patties in a little bit of oil so they fry up nicely. If you’re using 85 or 80% beef, I wouldn’t recommend cooking them with oil because the meat has enough fat in it to cook the patties well. 

How to Make Homemade Beef Breakfast Sausage Patties :

Step one: To a large bowl, add the ground beef and sausage seasoning mix. Using your gloved hands or a spoon, mix until all the seasonings have been well incorporated into the meat. 

Step two: Divide the meat into 6 – 7 roughly uniform patties. 

Step three: Preheat a large cast iron skillet with a little bit of oil. Fry the patties until they are well done and seared on both sides, cooking for 3 – 4 minutes per side. 

Step four: Serve with your favorite breakfast sides. Enjoy!

Kitchen Items you might need for this recipe

Large cast iron skillet

Disposable gloves

Cooking and storing tips

Properly preheat the skillet – Make sure the pan is hot before adding the sausage patties. This way they will get a nice sear and crispy edges. 

Use gloves to mix the meat – If you don’t like touching raw meat, grab a pair of disposable gloves to mix the meat with the seasonings and shape it into patties.

The meat patties will shrink while cooking – Make the patties a little larger than you want them because they will shrink as they cook. 

Storing – Store in an air-tight container for 3 – 5 days in the refrigerator or in the freezer for several weeks. 

Reheating – Reheat in the oven for a few minutes until hot, or covered on the stove so they don’t dry out. 

Serving suggestions

Scrambled eggs

Toast with lots of butter and/or jelly or honey

Fried plantains, I love fried plantains and eat them for breakfast lunch, dinner, and snacks!

Orange juice, there’s nothing like a cold glass of organic orange juice in the morning with breakfast!
