Delaney and I usually eat some form of eggs for breakfast every single day. Our usual breakfasts usually rotate between scrambled eggs and toast, veggie scramble with a bagel, eggs with waffles or French toast – but we like to have protein in the morning. And, we love having breakfast sausage too! When we have good organic pork breakfast sausage, it just makes breakfast that much better.
But, it is incredibly difficult to find organic pork breakfast sausage! The only good ones out there are Organic Prairie Breakfast Sausages. And our local grocery store doesn’t even stock those. So, I have to order them online. And when we run out, we get sad.
I also order Organic Prairie Ground Pork online as well (because, shocker, our grocery store doesn’t carry it!). So, I’ve found it’s easier to order this and then we can make homemade pork breakfast sausage, or we can use it for dinner.
This way, we just keep our freezer stocked with Organic Prairie Ground Pork, and we can use it for whatever we need. Making breakfast sausage with pork is incredibly easy. When you make homemade pork breakfast sausage you know you will be eating a good organic pork breakfast sausage.
To make homemade pork breakfast sausage, you just add a few simple spices into a bowl with the organic ground pork and mix it up. I use thyme, sage, fennel seed, marjoram, and nutmeg in this recipe for good organic pork breakfast sausage.
After you mix up the pork, you form them into patties. I made these into 2-ounce patties, so I get 8 patties per 1 pound of pork. After that, fry them up in a skillet, and you have homemade pork breakfast sausage!
What can I serve with this recipe for organic pork breakfast sausage?
You can serve these with scrambled eggs and toast. You can also serve them with Buttermilk Waffles, Eggless Banana Waffles, French Vanilla Pancakes, Buttermilk Pancakes, Cinnamon Rolls, Maple Cranberry Scones, or any other breakfast recipes you love!
Can I make this organic pork breakfast sausage into different size patties?
Yes, you can make different size patties. We do this sometimes when we make breakfast sandwiches, as we want them to be thinner and larger. In this case, we’ll form each 2-ounce patty into a disk that is almost 6-inches in diameter. This is a great size for using an English Muffin or bagel and making a breakfast sandwich.
You can also form them into classic links and fry them up that way as well. Just be sure to cook pork thoroughly if you are making different sizes. That may mean less time for smaller links or longer time for larger patties.
How do I store homemade pork breakfast sausage?
If you do not eat all patties at once, then store them in an airtight container in the fridge. They will keep for up to 5 days in the fridge. You can reheat them the following morning by either microwaving for about 30 seconds, or you can fry it up in a pan, or heat it in a toaster oven or air fryer.

Why go organic?
You may be wondering why I push organic ingredients for everything, even savory and healthy dishes. Organic ingredients go beyond just health and wellness, and contribute so much to the taste and flavor of a recipe. So, if you think that you’re making something healthy and buying fruits, veggies, or meats so maybe you don’t need to spend the extra to go organic here – let me sway your thinking.
Organic ingredients are made in a more pure way, therefore using no additives, no GMOs, and minimal ingredients. This really allows the true ingredients to shine – and because of that their flavor shines through. Therefore, organic ingredients are more flavorful than their non organic counterparts. So, just because it’s already a healthy recipe, or you’re already buying good for you ingredients – it doesn’t mean you can skip organic! Trust me here, and make the switch. Your body and your taste buds will thank you!
So, I highly recommend that you buy the best organic ingredients for this recipe! You can also shop my Amazon Storefront for all my favorite organic ingredients here. Tip – hover over each ingredient to see the name. And if you want to learn more about organic foods and the difference, read my post here on Food Labels and What They Mean.
