This is a great alternative to fatty pork breakfast sausage. Even friends who are not trying to limit their fat intake love these yummy patties for breakfast.

I love it because it is easy to make ahead, form into patties and freeze. Just thaw, cook, and serve ... and sit back and enjoy the compliments!
