Apple Leek Breakfast Sausage
Recipe Type: Breakfast
Author: Coach Nancy
This is one of my favorite breakfast recipes without eggs. It’s loaded with protein to get your day going in the right direction.
  • 4 to 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 to 2 teaspoons sea salt, to taste
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
  • A dash of cayenne powder
  • 2 pounds ground pork
  1. 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.
  2. Once it’s all evenly chopped up, add the ground pork and pulse for just a couple of seconds until it looks like it’s all mixed well. If you go too long, it makes the texture too crumbly.
  3. Form the mixture into little patties and lay them out on a large baking sheet.
  4. Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes, or cook in a slightly oiled skillet.
  5. You can also 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 or bake as described above.
