Breakfast Sausage Recipe -- Easy Healthy Low Carb Paleo
It is great not only for breakfast but also as an appetizer, snack, lunch, or supper.
Breakfast sausage is traditionally made from ground pork. You can also use chicken, turkey, beefalo, beef, venison, lamb, or a mixture, whichever you prefer.
You can shape the uncooked mixture into patties, thick homemade burgers, or skinless sausages, or roll them into little golf balls to serve hot or cold as tasty appetizers.
Experiment with this recipe by ringing the choice of fillings, or mixing two fillings, and add whatever spices or herbs you might prefer to the ones suggested.
Have fun! No one will arrest you!
From just three major brands of pork sausages, apart from the pork, these are the unwanted ingredients I just found:
(1) Water, Lactose (Milk), Milk Proteins, Wheat Fibre, Yeast, Flavourings, Pea Protein, Dextrose, Colours (Carmine, Paprika Extract), Preservative (Sodium Nitrite), Antioxidant (Sodium Erythorbate), Lactic Acid Culture
(2) Water, Fortified Wheat Flour (Wheat Flour, Calcium Carbonate, Stabiliser: Disodium Diphosphate, Sodium Triphosphate; Preservatives: Sodium Sulphite (Sulphites), Sulphur Dioxide; Raising Agent: Ammonium Carbonate; Antioxidant: Ascorbic Acid
(3) Water, Fortified Wheat Flour, Rusk (Wheat), Wheat Starch, Soya Protein, Flavourings, Stabilisers: Diphosphates, Guar Gum*, Antioxidants, Sodium Erythorbate, Preservative, Sodium Metabisulphite, Colourings.
Unless you are in a hurry to eat, to allow the full flavors of your breakfast sausage or patty mixture to develop, mix the ingredients several hours before they are needed.
For example, if these are for breakfast make the mixture the night before and refrigerate until required.
The mixture will keep in the refrigerator for up to three days. These sausages are not only delicious, and additive free, they also happen to be low carb and suitable for anyone following a Paleo diet or ketogenic diet.

Breakfast Sausage Recipe Method
Here is how to use the breakfast sausage recipe.
(1) Mix all the ingredient thoroughly in a mixing bowl, making sure that each ingredient is evenly distributed.
(2) Refrigerate until well chilled because this will make the mixture easier to handle and give the flavors time to develop fully.
(3) When ready to use, separate into patties or traditional shaped sausages. Cook in a pan lightly coated with melted coconut butter, or in the oven and brushed with melted coconut butter, turning once so that each side is brown and the sausages or patties are cooked through. The cooking time will vary according to whether you make sausages or patties and how thick you make them. So, just use your own judgement.
This basic recipe will provide you with tasty breakfast sausages or patties that are free of all additives. They are also low in carbohydrate and suitable for a Paleo diet or a ketogenic diet. Feel free to experiment with the recipe and add your favorite herbs or spices.
In case you decide to cook the sausages or patties in the oven, here is an oven conversion chart that may also come in useful on other occasions.

More about the breakfast sausage recipe
Using the breakfast sausage recipe rather than purchasing commercial sausage is a way of being kind to yourself (and your loved ones).
Although the risk is small, consumption of processed meats has been linked to pancreatic cancer. Most commercial processed meats have additives and fillers that are not natural ingredients.
Unfortunately, the foods that provide most humans calories today are not natural. They come from ingredients that our ancient ancestors did not eat. Although the First Agricultural Revolution greatly benefited civilization, it has had many damaging effects on our health.
We have shifted away from eating and moving in the ways our prehistoric ancestors did. This shift created the widespread diseases of civilization such as coronary heart disease (the biggest killer), insulin resistance, type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, weight gain, obesity, some kinds of cancer, and other food-related diseases.
If you regularly eat more natural foods, you will reduce your chances of suffering and premature death from these diseases. That explains why using this, and similar recipes can be very beneficial.
