These Whole30 breakfast sausages served in an easy breakfast bowl are a simple and scrumptious way to start your day! All you need is 10 minutes and your breakfast will be loaded with flavor and will keep you full for hours!



  • 1 pound ground pork
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon fennel seeds
  • 1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried sage
  • 1/2 dried thyme
  • 1 shallot, finely chopped
  • 1 clove garlic, minced


  1. Add all ingredients to a large bowl and use your hands to combine. Once all of the ingredients are evenly incorporated, divide into 8 patties.
  2. Heat a skillet over medium (I used my cast iron), and add a drizzle of olive oil.*
  3. Add sausage patties to skillet and cook for 2-3 minutes. Flip and cook for another 2-3 minutes, or until done.
  4. Serve in a breakfast bowl with your favorite goodies – sauteed kale, steamed sweet potato, a fried egg, and avocado!


*The pork I used had enough fat for me to skip the olive oil. But if you switch out the meat or combine meats, I suggest adding a teaspoon to the bottom to keep the sausages from sticking.
