Whole30 Breakfast Sausage
I’ve just recently completed my first Whole30! Some days were a breeze and some days were really hard. I found that planning ahead was truly what made the “easy” days a breeze.
Having a supply of food already made up made it easy at busy meal times, especially breakfast. I’m usually a quick-breakfast eater, along with the rest of my family.
Grab-and-go is pretty much our motto around here especially since our week-day mornings start out as if we’re shot out of cannons (which is why I make so many quick breads and muffins). Wake up and hit the ground running. I’m sure many of you are familiar with that.
When I had a few extra minutes to spare in the morning, I would heat up some of this Whole30 breakfast sausage and usually ate it with a hard boiled egg (prepared every Sunday) and some fruit. It made a relatively quick breakfast that I could eat while working on some recipes for this little ol’ blog o’mine.
On the weekends when we could ease our way into the day, I would eat this Whole30 breakfast sausage in omelets or with fried eggs. My favorite was to eat it with eggs, avocado, and salsa – such a great combo!
It will quickly become a staple in your house especially since it’s easy to make a big batch and freeze the leftovers.
I received 2 pounds of ground pork in my April ButcherBox and you better believe all 2 pounds of it went into making more of this sausage. (Remember when I made Grain Free Pork Milanese with my March box? So good!)
April’s box, also came with grass-fed hanger steaks (which I’m super excited about!), a grass-fed chuck roast, and some grass-fed ground beef along with the ground pork. So far, I’ve made Whole30 tacos, Paleo/Whole30 meatballs, and hamburgers with the ground beef and I’ve made a bang-a-rang Whole30 Pot Roast with the chuck roast.
So many delicious bites! ButcherBox is by far one of my favorite services. I hope you get the chance to check the out too! Enjoy!

IF YOU LOVE THIS Whole30 breakfast sausage recipe, BE SURE TO FOLLOW ME ON SOCIAL MEDIA SO YOU NEVER MISS A POST:
- 1 lb. ground pork
- 2 tbsp pure lard, melted (can use bacon fat or other fat of choice)
- 1 tsp fennel seeds
- 1/2 tsp garlic powder
- 1/2 tsp ground black pepper
- 1 tsp dried sage
- 3/4 tsp fine sea salt
- 1/4 tsp onion powder
- pinch of nutmeg
- Lard for frying
- Add the ground pork and 2 tbsp melted lard to a large mixing bowl. Use your hands to mix together.
- In a separate small bowl, add the fennel, garlic powder, black pepper, sage, salt, and onion powder and mix to combine.
- Sprinkle the seasonings over the pork and mix to combine. Form the pork into 8 equal sized patties.
- Heat 1-2 Tbsp lard in a frying pan. When the pan is hot, add the sausage patties (cook in batches if necessary) and cook 2-4 minutes per side until cooked through and no longer pink in the middle.
You can skip forming the sausage into patties and just cook it like you're browning ground beef. I often make 4 patties and then just brown the rest to use in omelets or frittatas.
ButcherBox ground pork stays nice and moist after cooking. If you use ground beef from the grocery store, it will be on the drier side.
