This recipe inspiration came out of necessity. All the pre-made sausages I have found in the grocery store have “seasonings” in them and although I’m not quite sure what all that entails, I would bet money that there is something in there that is not AIP compliant. Like the title indicates, these little pork patties are both sweet and savory. Sweetened with maple syrup makes them perfect for breakfast and the fresh sage complements the pork perfectly. The sweet potato binds everything together and makes will the edges crisp up nicely.
I love to make a whole batch of these and keep them in the refrigerator all week for a quick breakfast that can be tossed in the microwave or crisped up in a cast iron pan. They can be paired with some greens and fruit for a balanced breakfast.
