This paleo, Whole30 breakfast sandwich with sweet potato “buns” and homemade whole 30 breakfast sausage is a great, tasty option to add to your Whole 30 mornings! It’s easy to make your own Whole 30 compliant breakfast sausage, and this Pork-apple sausage is yummy.
I’m always trying to think of new Whole 30 breakfast ideas. I love having scrambles and omelettes and sausage for breakfast, but every once in a while I like to have something I can hold and eat. Do you ever feel that way? I love holding a burger or a sandwich and just chomping away. And I’ve been wanting a breakfast sandwich lately.
I have been eating sweet potato toast on some mornings during Whole30, so I thought about using that as my “bun.” It”s hard to find compliant Whole 30 breakfast sausage in the grocery store, so I bought some ground pork and made my own Whole 30 breakfast sausage and put it together. It was quite satisfying! I loved the sweetness of the sweet potato blended with the sage and apple in the sausage and the egg. It was like a much healthier version of a sausage mcmuffin!
I had a cup of Crio Bru on the side, and had a pretty tasty Whole 30 breakfast!
- 2 Large sweet potatoes cut into 1/2 inch slices
- 6 eggs
- 1 lb ground pork
- 2 Tbsp unsweetened applesauce I like to puree a honeycrisp apple
- 1 tsp dried sage
- 1 tsp fennel seeds
- ½ tsp black pepper
- ¾ tsp salt
- ¼ tsp garlic powder
- ¼ tsp red pepper flakes
- 1/4 tsp thyme
- ¼ tsp white pepper
- 2 Tbsp coconut oil
Preheat an oven to 425 degrees. Lightly brush both sides of the sweet potato slices with oil and place on a baking sheet. Bake for 20-30 minutes, until the edges are slightly crispy. Alternatively, you can toast them in a toaster oven for 15-20 minutes.
Place the sausage ingredients into a mixing bowl and mix well until thoroughly combined. Heat coconut oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Form the sausage into 2-inch patties and cook for 5 minutes on each side, until the pork is lightly browned and fully cooked. (I had a couple extra patties)
Lower the heat. Whisk the eggs and add to the pan and sprinkle lightly with salt and pepper. Use a spatula to scramble the eggs until they are cooked through. Remove from heat.
Place a sausage patty on a sweet potato slice, then add an ice-cream scoop of egg, and top with another sweet potato slice. Eat and enjoy!
