Simple Pork Sausage Patties


The best way to start the morning off is with a hearty breakfast. I’ve found that there is nothing better than a sausage patty or a piece of bacon when I need to make sure to have energy for the day. The following is a simple recipe for sausage patties. The best part about it is that it can easily be customized to fit your taste buds. If you know that you do or do not like a certain spice try substituting your preferences in this recipe. You’ll be amazed at how easy it is to make a breakfast staple for yourself.


1 pound ground pork
2 tablespoons honey
1 teaspoon mace
1 teaspoon sage
1 teaspoon thyme
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon pepper
1 – 2 tablespoons coconut oil


In a bowl combine all ingredients except coconut oil.
Mix together with hands, cover and let sit overnight in fridge.
Remove from fridge and form into sausage patties.
Heat coconut oil over medium, high heat.
Place patties in pan and cook for roughly 10 minutes, flipping occasionally.
Your cooking length will depend upon what size you make your patties, I always recommend checking one patty to ensure it is cooked all the way through before consuming.
After your patties are cooked, remove and let cool.

I make these patties before my week starts and bring them with me to work every morning so that I don’t miss out on a much needed breakfast. They also double as a great snack to get you through to your next meal.

Gourmet Hot Dogs


There’s no need to miss out on summer favorites, like July 4th hot dogs. I know you’re probably thinking, but hot dogs are highly processed and far from Paleo. I thought that too, until recently… Luckily there are some great companies out there, like Teton Waters Ranch and Applegate, who have made it their mission to enable us to indulge in festive foods without any guilt.

Teton Waters

If you read your labels, you’ll no doubt find a similar product at your local grocery store and then all it takes is a little stove top heat and you’ll be in business. But since that’s far too plain for a Paleo Pact recipe, let’s get creative:


2 teaspoons coconut oil
1 pack grass-fed sausages
5 button mushrooms, sliced
10 baby spinach leaves
1/4 cup onion, chopped
1/4 cup cherry tomatoes, quartered
Oregano spice, for seasoning


In a medium sauté pan, heat 1 teaspoon of coconut oil over medium heat.
Place the sausages in the pan and cook for about 5 minutes, turning midway.

In another sauté pan, melt the other teaspoon of coconut oil over medium heat.
Add the tomatoes and onion and cook until soft.

Remove the sausages, plate them and slice them long ways down the middle.
Open them up and place two spinach leaves and two to three slices of mushroom inside each sausage.
Scoop the tomato onion relish from the pan and fill the sausages.
Sprinkle with oregano and serve while hot.


These gourmet hot dogs are great paired with other Paleo takes on American favorites, like:



Happy Independence Day to you, and to America!

Agave Spiced Sausage


Our favorite new breakfast treat: Agave Spiced Sausage!

If you’re anything like me, protein for breakfast is a must and as much as I love bacon, sometimes switching it up makes life a little more interesting.

This recipe couldn’t be easier:


2 tablespoons raw agave nectar
2 teaspoons Italian seasoning
1/2 pound breakfast sausage
1 tablespoon coconut oil


Place the sausage in a small bowl.
Using your hands, work the agave and Italian Seasoning into the sausage meat.
Once well combined, form the mixture into patties.
Heat the coconut oil in a medium saucepan.
Grill the patties until well done, turning periodically.
Serve hot and enjoy!
