You'll never want to buy store-bought once you taste this Chicken Breakfast Sausage recipe- the best way to make patties and links at home!
Breakfast Sausage Seasoning: Whisk together the breakfast sausage seasoning ingredients in a small bowl.
Shape Sausage Patties: Add ground chicken to a large bowl along with the maple syrup and the sausage seasoning. Mash together with either a potato masher or by hand until everything is well mixed. Divide the mixture into four sections and create three patties from each section. The patties should end up being roughly 2 to 2 ½-inches wide and ½-inch thick.
-OR- Make Links: Alternatively, you can shape the mixture into links that are roughly 1-inch round and 3 inches long.
Cook Sausage in Skillet: Add 1-2 tablespoons of oil to a large skillet over medium heat. You want just enough so that it completely coats the bottom. Wait for the oil to begin to sizzle and then place the sausage patties in a single layer, being careful that none of them touch. (Depending on the size of your skillet, you may need to cook these in two batches.) Cook the sausage for 3 minutes per side, or until the edges become golden and the meat is cooked through and no longer pink.
Serve immediately or store in the refrigerator for up to 4 days and in the freezer for up to 3-4 months.
