Paleo Breakfast Patties

Breakfast Patties

This power house breakfast (or lunch) is a great Fall time meal. It can be eaten any time of year, but for some reason Fall/Winter is my favorite time to east this for breakfast. These are quick, easy and a great way to incorporate organ meats into your diet. You can omit the organ meats if you like. I always make a side of sweet potato hash or butternut squash hash.

These are great made a few days ahead of time, jut reheat in a toaster oven or on a small pan with a lid and a little water (1 Tbs.) on medium heat for about 5 minutes, flipping once.

Ingredients:

  • 1 lb grass-fed ground beef, grass-fen ground lamb, or pasture raised ground turkey
  • 3 Tbs chopped organ meats; liver, heart, kidneys, etc. (you can omit if you want)
  • 1 small onion, peeled and quartered – and minced if not using a food processor
  • 5 cloves of garlic peeled – and minced if not using a food processor
  • 1 teaspoon unrefined salt
  • 1 tsp oregano
  • 2 tsp rosemary or fennel seeds (optional)
  • 1 tsp sage (optional)
  • 1/4 tsp. ground cloves (optional but recommended when adding liver)
  • dash of freshly ground pepper (optional)
  • dash of cayenne (optional)
  • cooking fat such as coconut oil, grass-fed butter, ghee, grass-fed tallow, or grass-fed lamb fat

Instructions:

  1. Place the ground meat in a mixing bowl.
  2. In a food processor, blend all the ingredients including the organ meat, leave out the ground meat.
  3. Then add the blended ingredients to the ground meat and mix all ingredients together.
  4. Make patties in any shape and size you want (I like to make small hamburger sized patties).
  5. Heat a cast iron pan on medium heat and melt your cooking fat of choice.
  6. Cook the patties on medium heat for about 4 minutes on each side with a lid. When both sides are fully browned, check the middle to see if it’s fully browned and it’s done.

To store, let it cool completely and use a glass container with a lid to store the patties in the fridge for about 3 days (maybe up to 5, you would need to make that call).

For turkey, here is a recipe I really like to make (same instructions as above):
