Maple Chicken Breakfast Sausage

This maple chicken breakfast sausage is AIP compliant and even better, is a perfect grab and go breakfast. Cook up a batch for the week ahead and you won’t have to worry about breakfast all week.

When following an AIP diet, sausage can be a real challenge in recipes. Store-bought sausage invariably includes nightshade spices such as chili powder and paprika or seeds such as fennel and cumin. Use this recipe to make your own sausage – just mix and leave uncooked. Then, you’ll have an easy substitute for any recipe needing sausage.

  • Perfect for any meal! A bit of sweetness and yummy spices feel comforting!

  • Delicious! This was a hit with my 3 & 5 year olds – which is a big deal!

  • Great Mix of Complimentary Flavors. I recommend serving 2 of these over a bed of spinach as a quick breakfast.

  • A must try. I ate half the batch this morning when I tried making these. OMG. Delish!!

  • Very good. I used bacon fat to help keep the patties moist. The mixture was very sticky on my hands, and the patties were still a little dry even using the bacon fat. They tasted good and these are a great and easy alternative to store bought sausage. I just started the reintroduction phase, but this is a recipe I will keep using.

    • To form the patties without it sticking, run your hands under COLD running water every few patties or even as often as between every one. To make these less dry, I use a mixture of ground chicken and dark ground turkey. You could also make them with pork or beef or any combination to suit your taste! I make a large batch and keep in the freezer for a quick breakfast, adding some sauteed greens if I have time. Great recipe!

  • Yum!
