Steps by step instructions
How to make carnivore breakfast sausage patties?
STEP 1: Begin by grinding the spices in a spice or coffee grinder, or use a pestle and mortar. If preferred, you can skip this step.
STEP 2: In a large bowl, combine the ground spices and optional sugar-free maple syrup with the ground pork. Use your hands to thoroughly mix the ingredients until well combined.
STEP 3: Shape the mixture into 10 balls using an ice cream scoop or your hands. Place the formed balls in a bowl and set aside.
STEP 4: Heat a medium or large skillet over medium-high heat, adding 1-2 tablespoons of olive oil to coat the skillet, depending on its size.
STEP 5: Once the skillet is warmed up, take each ball and shape it into a sausage patty. Press your thumb down in the center of each patty to prevent a domed appearance.
Fry each patty on one side for approximately 3 minutes, then flip to brown the other side until it achieves a desirable color.
STEP 6: Remove the patties from the skillet and place them on a paper towel-lined plate to absorb any excess grease. This process may need to be done in batches based on the size of your skillet.
