Breakfast sausage patties are a great reduced carb meal option.

This recipe is great candidate for batch making the patties and freezing them.

Once you start batch prepping you won’t stop!

Ingredients for 1 serving

176 g extra lean beef mince
46 g onions, finely chopped
1 tsp dried sage
6 g olive oil
52 g peppers, sliced
3 whole eggs
3 egg whites
149 g spinach
48 ml sweet chilli sauce
salt and pepper


  • In a bowl add the mince, diced onion and dried sage and season with salt and pepper.
  • Give these a good mix until all the ingredients are incorporated.
  • Using wet hands to stop the mince mixture stick to your hands, shape the mixture into patties, 2 or 3 but don’t make them too thick as they would take longer to cook.
  • Put a frying pan on a medium heat and wilt the spinach.
  • Once wilted, put the spinach to one side, give the pan a wipe to remove any left over liquid and add the oil.
  • Once the oil is hot add the patties.
  • Half way through cooking add the sliced peppers to the pan and add a little sprinkling of salt to them to release a little of their natural liquid (saves you adding more oil).
  • Take a pan of simmering water and poach your eggs.
  • I use an egg poaching pan which has 4 cups to add my eggs and egg whites into.
  • Poach your eggs to your liking.
  • The patties are cooked when they are firm to the touch.
  • Plate up by placing the wilted spinach, peppers, patties and poached eggs onto your plate.
  • Don’t forget to add the sweet chilli to the side for dipping.

Recipe Notes

  • Make sure your mince is extra lean, less than 5% of fat per 100g.
  • Remember, the thicker the pattie, the longer they’ll take to cook.
  • Batch prepare the patties and freeze other portions for another day.
  • I use an egg poaching pan which has 4 cups to add my eggs and egg whites into.
  • For those on 2018 BC plans, sweet chilli sauce is a swap for other side sauces provided you choose one with equivalent macros.
