Apple Leek Breakfast Sausage

Breakfast without eggs or serve it with a side of eggs. Being creative with each meal is all up to you and this recipe certainly will add another ACE to your hand. 

Apple Leek Breakfast Sausage

4-5 thick-cut strips of smoked bacon

3/4 cup chopped leeks only the white part

1 medium apple, cored and quartered (no need to peel)

1 tablespoon fresh or dried rosemary

2 tablespoon fresh chopped sage leaves (or 2 teaspoon of dried)

1/2 tablespoon fresh lemon juice or apple cider vinegar

1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper

1 – 2 teaspoons sea salt, to taste

1/4 teaspoon ground cloves

a dash of cayenne powder

2 pounds ground pork

Put all of the ingredients except for the pork into your food processor, and whiz until everything is pretty finely chopped. You may need to scrape down the sides once or twice, so you don’t have any long strands of leeks.

Once it’s all evenly chopped up, add the ground pork, and just pulse for a couple of seconds until it looks like it’s all mixed well— if you go too long, it makes the texture too crumbly.

Form them into little patties, and lay them out on a large baking sheet. Now you have the choice to make them now or freeze them for later.

To freeze the patties, leave them on the baking pan for a couple of hours In the freezer. Take the frozen patties off of the baking sheet and store them. When you’re ready for a great breakfast, just pull some out of the freezer and cook them in a slightly oiled skillet. (You can also bake them in the oven at 350º F for 30 minutes)

These are delicious. Don't take my word for it though. Let me know what you think.

To Your Best Health,

Coach Nancy
