Autoimmune Paleo Sausage Patties

What can I have for breakfast?

This is one of the most common questions I get from people adopting a gluten free or Paleo diet, or who are dealing with a number of food intolerances. Any kind of Real Food diet eliminates the convenient go-tos like cereal, toast and bagels and some people struggle with what to replace those foods with.

In my family of six, five of us are gluten free, I follow the Paleo Autoimmune Protocol, my daughter is also dairy free and eats very few grains (I call her “Paleo Light”)… we are dealing with quite a few different diet styles. As often as possible, I make food that we can all eat and enjoy (to save my time and my sanity). That’s why I developed these Autoimmune Paleo Sausage Patties that are not only AIP compliant but also a big hit with my kids. They are heavily spiced with AIP compliant spices, and have a very kid friendly flavour. They are regularly part of my batch cooking on Sunday, and we warm them up in a skillet with veggies (me) and/or eggs (the kids) on weekday mornings. They also freeze really well if this recipe makes too many for you.

I normally do mine in the oven because it allows me to get them all cooked at once, but pan frying (either initially or when reheated) allows them to brown  up a little. Do whichever works for you, just keep an eye on them as they will dry out if overcooked.
