With two teenage sons in the house, it probably comes as no surprise that meatis served at almost every meal. Despite loving lentils and beans, and pasta dishes made with mostly veggies, they always prefer to have meat, if it’s available to them.
They are particularly fond of adding it to their breakfast plates on the weekend. Bacon and sausage-enhanced breakfast sandwiches are a favourite, but to be honest I don’t love feeding them those ingredients as frequently as they would like to eat them. Fortunately, homemade sausage patties are a snap to make and if you use quality ingredients it will be hard to beat the taste.
I like to keep my cooked patties in the freezer (if I keep them in the fridge they will be devoured by said kids in less than a day), and I pull them out when needed. When I feel like being extra sweet I’ll even use them to whip up something special on weekday mornings, sending them off to school with protein in their belly, made from ingredients I feel good about serving them.
