These are a great addition to any breakfast. It has a crunchy outer layer and a soft middle. It is full of spice and flavor.You can switch it up and use ground sausage for the meat or even bacon. I like to fry an egg with mine and eat them together. I also like to eat the patties with maple syrup drizzled on them. Enjoy this tasty little breakfast treat!
