Thin and Crispy Sausage Patties

Thin Crispy Sausage Patties

I love the thin and crispy sausage patties classically found on fast food breakfast sandwiches.  I'm not sure I want to think about how much of those patties is actually sausage, but I set out to create crispy sausage patties that would be perfect for my homemade breakfast sandwiches.

However there was a problem--sausage does not like to stick together.  In fact it really wants to fall apart all over the place.  (Attempt one was a disaster lol.)  So I added some binders--an egg and a little flour.  And it worked! Thin and crispy sausage patties just perfect for putting on a breakfast sandwich.  The patties are crispy on the outside, juicy on the inside, and best of all they hold together!

Sausage Patty for Breakfast Sandwiches

Come back tomorrow and see how I combined the English muffins, these sausage patties, and baked eggs into delicious breakfast sandwiches.

makes 8-10 patties

1 pound ground pork breakfast sausage
1 egg, lightly beaten
1 tablespoon flour
oil for cooking (optional)
  1. Heat a dutch oven or cast iron skillet over medium heat.  If your sausage is lean add 1 tablespoon of oil to the pan.
  2. Use your hands to combine the sausage, egg and flour until fully mixed. 
  3. Divide the sausage into 8 or 10 even pieces.  Use your hands to gently press the sausage into a patty.  Flip the patty into the skillet and carefully spread the patty thinner; use a silicone spatula or your fingers carefully!
  4. Let patties cook until bottoms are browned and then flip.  Cook until the other side is browned and the patties are cooked through.
  5. Transfer cooked patties to a paper towel lined plate and then eat! 
Tomorrow I'm sharing the breakfast sandwiches that all the cooking this week culminated in!  The breakfast sandwiches go straight from the freezer to the microwave to the belly.  They are delicious and easy and totally do these sausage patties justice!
