To shape patties you can either use your hands or do what I did. Take some meat and place between two layers of plastic wrap. With a rolling pin roll out meat to desired thickness.

    great recipe and thank you for sharing. I will enjoy incorporating this into my menu and maybe making my own spin on it for our likes of different flavorings. This will definitely help with different meal ideas in future. To the guys down below talking Smack about the pricing, You obviously do not do the shopping in your house or only rely on microwavable options cause I agree with many on here from my “normal cupboard” theses are STAPLE spices and cookware that almost every home has and by the way Dollar Tree has quite the selection of kitchen stuffs and spices for 1.25 and there is no reason for your fake bs story about this costing a large amount of money cause it would not by any real cook/shoppers standards even ones with out alot of money. SMH!

    Can you cook the patties and then freeze them? Also can you make them without the pork and only the ground turkey? Thank you so much for your help.

    I made these tonight with slightly less meat (I adjusted the amount of other ingredients accordingly) and WOW. These were so good! I’m restricted from gluten and dairy for the next month so I’ve been making a lot of my own food and this recipe was a huge successes. Only two differences for me: instead of onion I added onion powder and the only sage I could find at the grocery store was rubbed sage. I did add the red pepper flakes and maple syrup. Will make these again!

    I haven’t tried these yet . . . I will be using hamburger and not pork. I don’t like or use turkey either. I’ll let you know how they turn out.

    The spices seem right though, so I will try them.

    You only have 6 servings for 3.25 pounds of meat. That’s more than half a pound of meat per serving. However it sounds like a great recipe. BTW, we only eat about 2 ounces for a serving. I’ll be giving it a try.

    I added the price of everything in this recipe including the rolling pin and saran wrap and it came up to $72.40 incl 6% tax. I did have pepper on hand. I can buy Bob Evans frozen patties for $10.99 (30 patties) and sprinkle pepper on them and they taste fine on a sausage biscuit. You obviously can afford to buy the best spices out there but a lot of us can’t do that. I’m sure your patties taste great in a restaurant but I just want 2 sausage biscuits in the morning with my coffee and not have to burp all those spices all day long.

      Lol its pretty extra to include the price of a rolling pin. You’re just trying to make it sound sooooooo expensive. Its not. Most people that cook have spices. I think you are just being rude and your comment is not helping anyone.

      The spatula and pan dont come free so there is 200 bucks alone.

      With the price of gas you better tack on 100 bucks to get to the store and back for all the ingredients.

      Also the kitchen ain’t free somebody pays for the mortgage, so let’s say 1500 for a good guess.

      $1872.40! for what? Some measly meat patties that I could have paid a robot to make? Talk about inconvenient and impractical. This is the 21st century, where we’re going, we don’t need roads, OR RECIPES.

        I guess you could order out and have it delivered ? The purpose of the recipe or any other recipe is to provide PEOPLE an option to cook at home and share ideas.

      • Liz says

        They come super cheap when you go to a thrift store!!! These are way cheaper than the $8 frozen ones for 6 at the store…. You have all these ingredients on hand you use a pinch of them… you’d make a ton of Pattie’s they way you are saying it…. Wow.

    • S Nelson says

      Wow! Maybe some of us don’t care for the carcinogenic additives in premade sausage. Rude one!

    Haven’t tried yet, I just felt awful seeing some of the other reviews. I am reactive to MSG- not because of a reporter, because my body can’t have it, and I also can’t have corn. Every breakfast sausage I looked at in my local stores had corn syrup and dextrose… I was so sad! I was so thankful to have found this!

        I am so excited to try this recipe. I have all the spices on hand and I am going to mix some ground pork and chorizo with the ground chicken I have in freezer. I will be skipping the maple flavoring.

    Disgusting!!! No like SERIOUSLY disgusting!

    So before you go out and spend $30-$40bucks on the sausage ingredients, read this review. Definitely 1/2 the ingredients to trey out 1st if you must try.

    I just knew they would be delicious with the bomb diggity reference. When I say disgusting?!? I mean it…the ground turey should set off red flags, but th lack of salt and FLAVOR!

    I’d definitely research other recipes first. You’re welcome in advance! I had to save someone else from this recipe.

    Easy Homemade Sausage Patties Recipe - Freezer Friendly too! (20)
    MSG isn’t bad for you. Point in fact, it’s better for you than table salt. It has 60% less sodium and way more flavor. The whole MSG scare was started by a reporter who didn’t understand science. Look it up.

    Reply

    • Cassie says

      That is a terrible reason to give someone a 1 star rating. Please tell me if you’ve actually tried this recipe, and what your thoughts were, rather than being petty over her calling MSG a mystery ingredient.

      Reply

      • Kit says

        I think it’s a good reason for one star rating. How good can a recipe be if they intentionally leave out good ingredients that are healthy, delicious, and have a long history of being used?
        What’s next to be afraid of without reason, dihydrogen monoxide? Good luck with removing that from your diet. If you’re afraid of things you can’t pronounce just learn how to pronounce them.
        There were a few good tips on the site about freezing stuff though, so technique wise it’s helpful. I make a point of avoiding any recipe that rejects common ingredients without good cause, so I won’t be making this particular sausage blend. Saving time in the morning is always a welcome thing. Very excited to try them out.

    • Maryann says

      MSG is NOT good for you at all. A lot of people has effects from eating it and don’t even realize it. I get terrible headaches when I eat it. Lease don’t share misinformation.
      I don’t understand why people need to leave negative comments on recipes. Especially if you didn’t even make it. I haven’t tried this recipe yet because I need to pick up some sage. But I will be making it and I’m sure the HOMEMADE sausage patties will be delicious.

    These are delicious! I love to make homemade sausage patties and the puréed onion in these is the secret ingredient I didn’t know I was missing. It’s put these over the edge! I didn’t have any maple syrup so I used honey and they taste great. Thank you!! I can’t wait to have these on hand and make again. 🙂

    Hi Karrie,

    I was looking for homemade sausage patties since the store bought are generally much too small to fit in a bagel or croissant sandwich. I will definitely be trying these, our home LOVES spice so for us it works.

    Thank you,

    Cristina

    This is a wonderful recipe. I do not like sausages store bought as you cannot tell what is in them. Good for you. Sausages can be made of pork, beef, turkey, and many other meats. What a great idea to make your own and have them frozen for when you need them. I have a family and they are all pleased I found your site. Thank you

    Why Turkey??? Sausage is PORK plain and simple. What are all those spices doing in the recipe.Just enjoy the sausage. You must be a young tree hugging liberal health freak. If it bothers you so much don’t eat sausage.

    • KESHIA says

      Actually, sausage is a term used for the shape; meaning it is a meat, or meat substitute, encased in a tube casing. This is why you can have pork, chicken, turkey and tofu different varieties of “sausage”. Also to get flavor you have to add spices.

      Sydney,
      Seriously? Are you a child that knows nothing about special diets or simply a rude adult who has nothing better to do than stalk recipe blogs? There are a lot of reasons why someone might choose turkey over pork. Some people are allergic to pork and can’t eat it because of the risk of dying from anaphylaxis. Then there are those who don’t want the fat content of pork for health reasons. Others prefer to avoid the possibility of parasites that can be found in pork products. Some just don’t like the taste of it. All are valid reasons. Please go find something better to do with your time.

    Thank you for sharing this recipe. It is only my daughter and me so the amount is a little too much for us. I just used 1 lbs pork (could not find the turkey) and just divided all ingredients by 3. It worked out just fine!
    verry tastefull, and not as salty as most sausage patties.

    Looks doable but way to much sausage for me to have around. Any idea how to cut it down to 1 pound of pork and no turkey

    Hello Karrie,

    I was looking for sausage recipes online,and how to shape them at home when I came across your site.I really want to try it.They dont sell maple syrup where I am living at the moment.I do wish to add a bit of sweetness to the recipe when I try it.Could you give me more alternatives that I could try?

    We have never made sausages at home and this would be my first time.I am a little unsure of what I can use to make the recipe sweet and what quantity I can use it in.Your input would be much appreciated.
    Thank you in advance and take care.

      Ask your butcher for flavour additives to making sausages. There are packages of different flavours, like honey garlic, and October fest , and so on . Some sports shops carry these items also. Good luck
