I received the KitchenAid mixer food grinder attachment for Christmas and finally tried it out to make Elly’s breakfast chicken sausages. It was great to be able to grind my own chicken. I am very suspect of what’s actually in the ground chicken from the grocery store, not to mention it is so expensive (more than ground turkey at my store!) That being said, you can certainly make these using pre-ground chicken, and I have myself since it’s so easy!

These chicken sausage patties were fantastic! Bob and I had them with waffles for breakfast one Saturday, and we loved them. They are so flavorful and have a great blend of spices.

I didn’t have allspice for some reason, so I added a dash of cinnamon, nutmeg, and cloves. Next time, I might omit these next time to give it a more savory flavor, or I’ll get some allspice and try that.

I used only chicken breasts, but you can certainly use dark meat or a combination of the two. Although I halved the recipe, I will post the full because we wished we had more! 🙂

    Of course I saw this ages ago on Elly's site, told myself I was making it, and never did. I seriously need to do so – so much cheaper and probably better than most of the chicken sausages I buy!

    Ooh. Maybe I need to get the grinder attachment! I've made turkey sausage patties for breakfast before, but I never thought to do chicken. Great herbs and spices in there, and I love how they're so nicely browned.
