Pork Apple & Sage Breakfast Patties

One of my challenges during the week when I leave the house very early is having breakfast. It’s early, I’m not hungry, I don’t have time (or the desire) to cook something right then and there…. so working on the habit of prepping breakfast ahead of time has been a welcome challenge for 2018. Cue this recipe which can be made in advance and just kept on hand ready to go. I made a large batch, froze some of the raw patties and cooked some for the days ahead. This way, when I need more I’ll pull the rest out of the freezer. Additionally, I kept this recipe simple so you can make them quickly, and of course I stuck extra veggies in there! I hope you enjoy.

Prep time
Cook time
Total time
A clean, healthy and Whole30 compliant egg-free breakfast recipe.
Serves: 8 servings
  • 2 lb ground pork (or sub chicken or turkey)
  • 3 apples, grated
  • 3 ribs celery, grated
  • ¼ cup fresh chopped sage
  • 1 tsp dry thyme
  • 1 ¼ tsp sea salt
  • ½ tsp black pepper
  • 2 handfuls spinach, finely chopped
  • Optional: ⅓ cup chopped cooked bacon
  1. Preheat oven to 375.
  2. Combine all ingredients in a bowl and mix well.
  3. Form patties about 1.5 - 2 oz in size and place on a baking sheet pan (I find using an ice cream scoop works really well for this).
  4. Bake until reaches an internal temp of 165 - about 25 minutes depending on your oven and the size of your patties. If you cut open a meatball, it should no longer be pink in the center.
  5. *My oven cooks fast because it is convection, so mine were done in 20 minutes.
