Breakfast Chicken Sausage Patties


I received the KitchenAid mixer food grinder attachment for Christmas and finally tried it out to make these chicken sausages. It was great to be able to grind my own chicken. I am very suspect of what's actually in the ground chicken from the grocery store, not to mention it is so expensive (more than ground turkey at my store!) That being said, you can certainly make these using pre-ground chicken!

These chicken sausage patties were fantastic! Bob and I had them with waffles for breakfast one Saturday, and we loved them. They are so flavorful and have a great blend of spices. I didn't have allspice for some reason, so I added a dash of cinnamon, nutmeg, and cloves. I might omit these next time to give it a more savory flavor, or I'll get some allspice and try that. I used only chicken breasts, but you can certainly use dark meat or a combination of the two. I halved the recipe but will post the full - I wished I had made more! :)

Breakfast Chicken Sausage Patties

1 pound ground chicken
1/2 teaspoon dried sage
1/2 teaspoon dried marjoram
1/2 to 3/4 teaspoon dried thyme
1/4 teaspoon ground cayenne pepper
heaping 1/4 teaspoon ground allspice, optional
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
about 3/4 teaspoon kosher salt
1 garlic clove, finely minces or pressed
1/2 Tablespoon real maple syrup
2 - 3 teaspoon olive oil

1. Lightly mix all ingredients together until the herbs and spices are well-incorporated. Do not overmix.

2. Divide the mixture into 4 equal parts, then make 4 patties out of each portion for a total of 16 1-ounce patties.

3. Heat a nonstick pan over medium heat and add 1 teaspoon oil. Fill the pan with as many patties as will fit, and cook about 2 minutes per side or until browned and cooked through. Repeat with remaining batches, adding an additional teaspoon of olive oil per batch.

  1. Of course I saw this ages ago on Elly's site, told myself I was making it, and never did. I seriously need to do so - so much cheaper and probably better than most of the chicken sausages I buy!

  2. These look really good. I make a quiche with crumbled pork sausage, but this would be just as tasty and much healthier.

  3. Ooo, those look good. I've been wanting to get a grinder for a while, making your own sausage sounds like fun.

  4. I'm so impressed you made your own sausage! They look really good - love the herbs you used.

  5. Making your own sausage probably saves a ton of money on ground meat and you know what's in there. Nice! Looks delicious.

  6. Ooh. Maybe I need to get the grinder attachment! I've made turkey sausage patties for breakfast before, but I never thought to do chicken. Great herbs and spices in there, and I love how they're so nicely browned.

  7. Great minds think alike! I just made these too and posted them today:) I used turkey...yours look delish!! that's awesome that you even ground your own impressive!

  8. I'm so impressed you made your own chicken sausages! I need to get one of those attachments!
