These homemade pork breakfast sausage patties are the best. They are tender, flavourful and healthy. Naturally sweetened and suitable for those on paleo and whole30 diet.
Add 3 pitted dates, salt, pepper, dried thyme, garlic powder, ground sage, ground nutmeg, eggs and avocado oil into a small blender. I use my magic bullet. Turn on the blender until all ingredients are well combined. If you don't have a blender, then mash the dates into two raw eggs with a spoon, when the mixture is homogenous, add the spices, the 3rd egg, and oil, then mix well again.
Transfer the liquid mixture into a large mixing bowl. Stir in the almond flour to make a thin paste.
Add ground pork into the mixing bowl, gently massage the ground pork into the paste until well combined. Do not over work the ground pork.
Heat the cast iron skillet on medium heat.
Take some of the sausage mixture to make into 2" to 3" diameter rounds, no more than 1/4" thick. I use a mason jar lid ring to shape the breakfast sausage patties. Press the meat mixture into the metal ring to make a patty, then pop the sausage patty out by pushing through the inner circle of the ring. Repeat until all the sausage mixture is used up.
Drop the sausage patties directly onto the heated cast iron skillet. No need to add oil.
Cook each side of the sausage patties for 5 to 7 minutes, or until golden brown.
