Ingredients for Paleo Breakfast Sausage Patties
When I said these baked sausage patties were easy to make, I wasn’t lying! They only require one pound of ground pork and seven dried seasonings you probably keep stocked in your pantry:
- 2 teaspoons ground fennel seeds or fennel powder (may also grind seeds in a coffee grinder, but omit for AIP elimination phase)
- 1 ½ teaspoon dried oregano
- 1 ½ teaspoon dried parsley
- 1 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1 teaspoon onion powder
- 1 teaspoon dried basil
- 1 teaspoon sea salt
If you prefer, you could swap the ground pork for ground poultry like chicken or turkey. This should not change the cooking time. Just opt for grass-fed, free-range meat when possible. Animals will have a better or worse fat quality depending on what they eat and how freely they can move.
When you decide to purchase and consume pasture-raised meat, consider sourcing your product directly from the farmer, as the price of grass-fed/pasture-raised meat can steeply vary from grocery store to grocery store. It’s also beneficial to connect with or at least know of the farms your meat comes from and the farmers who are raising those animals for your consumption.
Sourcing Tip: Grass Roots Coop is one of our favorite sources of sustainably-raised meats. Grass Roots farmers use regenerative agriculture, which means they replenish the nutrients in the soil rather than deplete them. Their rotational grazing practices also improves our environment and slows climate change. Using Grass Roots helps to take the guesswork out of finding farms that are “up to snuff” on their methods.

How To Make Sausage Patties in the Oven
- Preheat the Oven: To 425 degrees (or 400 degrees on convection), and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
- Prepare Sausage Patties: Mix ground meat with spices until well blended. Form into rounds, making approximately 10-12 small patties by hand and squishing down flat. (You could also use a biscuit cutter for more uniform pieces.)
- Bake the Sausage Patties: Place sausage patties onto the lined baking sheet in a single layer and bake for approximately 15-20 minutes, flipping halfway. Check the internal pork sausage cooking temperature before serving to ensure they’re at least 160 degrees.
- Serve and/or Store: Let the sausages rest for a couple minutes before serving to ensure they’re cooked through and juicy.
