I recently started making my own Homemade Sausage Patties recipe and they are the bomb-diggity!
Let me tell you why…
They have no mystery ingredients like MSG, high fructose corn syrup, and sodium nitrate, among other weird ingredients I have no idea what they are. They taste good, and I mean good! My kids even gobbled them up with no complaints – and that’s saying something. This homemade sausage patties recipe is one that I can make ahead of time and freeze, making it another freezer meals recipe to make my mornings easier and less stressful. Below is the recipe, I hope you enjoy it!
Homemade Sausage Patties Recipe
2 lbs ground pork, at room temperature
1.25 lbs ground turkey, at room temperature
1/3 cup pureed or finely chopped onion (puree or chop first in blender or food processor).
2 tsp finely minced fresh parsley, or dried if you don’t have fresh
2 tsp fine Celtic sea salt –>find quality salt products here
1 tsp ground sage (affiliate link)
1/2 tsp dried thyme
1 tsp chili powder
1 tsp black pepper
1 tsp dried basil (affiliate link)
1 tsp dried oregano
2 teaspoons pure maple syrup (Buy it on Amazon)
1/2 tsp red pepper flakes, optional
To begin making this homemade sausage patties recipe you need to combine all the seasonings in a bowl and mix until well blended. Add in ground meat and onion, using your hands to combine thoroughly.
If cooking your homemade sausage patties recipe right away, shape into patties and cook over med-high heat on heavy skillet or griddle sprayed lightly with oil. Cook until nice and brown and no longer pink in the middle, a few minutes on each side.
Oh wait..what was I saying? Sorry this picture is making me drool and want to make and eat some more of this homemade sausage patties recipe. Okay back to the recipe… sorry about that. I get distracted easily.
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.
Remove top layer of plastic wrap. Take a round cookie cutter or top of a drinking glass, and press down to cut out nice round sausage patties.
Transfer to hot griddle to cook or baking sheet to be frozen.
Shape and roll mixture into two logs about six inches long. Wrap in plastic wrap and freeze. To use, thaw and slice into patties with knife, then cook.
Or if you like, you can shape into patties, and layer them individually onto a parchment lined baking sheet and freeze. Then remove and add to a freezer safe gallon sized bag.

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.
Karen Kirby says
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.

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 glad! 🙂

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.
Thanks for your review. We like it at our house and it’s okay if you don’t like it at your house. Just passing along a family recipe.
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.
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.
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.
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. 🙂
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.
Sandi X says
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
Sidney Fishbat says
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.
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.
You are not a nice person. I hope you have the life you deserve.
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
Hi Pat, that is exactly what I did. I just used 1 lbs pork (could not find the turkey) and just divided all ingredients by 3. It worked out just fine!
Geralynn Baxter says
Can you cook the sausage patties and then freeze?
You can freeze anything . Just look at frozen cooked burgers, frozen cooked bacon. Good luck
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
