Breakfast Chicken Sausage Patties

by Melissa on September 10, 2009

We needed a side to go with our chocolate chip pancakes and I had been eyeing these chicken sausage patties in Elly’s blog for a while. Making something like sausage patties sounds like a lot of work, but these are essentially flattened chicken burgers, and chicken burgers are easy to make. I really liked this recipe and plan on making these again this weekend for breakfast sandwiches.


Breakfast Chicken Sausage Patties

  • 1 lb. ground chicken*
  • 1/2 tsp. dried sage ( I used 1 tsp. finely chopped fresh sage)
  • 1/2 tsp. dried marjoram
  • 1/2  to 3/4 tsp. dried thyme
  • 1/4 tsp. ground cayenne pepper
  • heaping 1/4 tsp. ground allspice
  • 1/4 tsp. freshly ground black pepper
  • about 3/4 tsp. kosher salt
  • 1 garlic clove, finely minced or pressed
  • 1/2 Tbsp. maple syrup
  • 2-3 tsp. olive oil

Lightly mix all ingredients, except for the olive oil, together until the herbs/spices are well incorporated – make sure you don’t over mix!

Divide the mixture into 4 equal parts, and then make 4 (or 2, for 2-oz. patties) patties from each part.

Heat a nonstick pan over medium heat and add 1 tsp. of oil.  Put 1/3 or 1/2 of the patties (depending how big your pan is and how much space your patties take up) into the pan and cook about 2 minutes per side or until browned and cooked through. Repeat with the next 1-2 batches, adding an additional teaspoon of olive oil per batch.

*Ground chicken breast will make a leaner patty, but  dark (or a mixture of white and dark) meat will make a tastier patty.
