Breakfast is super easy with these gluten-freedairy-free, Paleo, ground chicken & sweet potato breakfast sausage patties!

They say breakfast is the most important meal of the day, but it can also feel like the most difficult to make happen! Between getting kids up and ready for school, preparing lunches, and getting homework together, breakfast needs to be quick! Cue ground chicken & sweet potato breakfast patties! Make up a batch of these for the week ahead and just reheat each morning. Healthy and filling, these breakfast patties are great served with other breakfast foods, or by themselves with Koops’ Mustard and SunGarden sprouts! You’ll easily get some veggies into your kids’ diet with this breakfast recipe making it a great way to start your morning!

When cooking the mushrooms and spinach, I used coconut oil but you could use any cooking fat that you prefer to cook with: olive oil, avocado oil, lard, tallow, etc.

You can also experiment or substitute the mustard in this recipe. I used Koops’ Spicy Brown Mustard but any of these Koops’ Mustards would be great with this recipe!

While these are great for breakfast (served with some eggs on the side!) they’d be delicious for lunch or dinner too. I love eating these patties over a bed of greens with sprouts and mustard on top. It is so delicious!! I usually don’t even use a salad dressing and use the mustard as if it were one. If I decide I want a little dressing, I’ll usually whip up one of my favorite ones. If you like these ground chicken & sweet potato patties, try out some of our other BurgerFit burger recipes – you can easily make any of these recipes using ground chicken, turkey, or pork!

A perfect healthy Sunday breakfast for your kids to eat! Any leftovers make for a quick breakfast throughout the week. -Alane

  • 1 cup sweet potato (1 large or 2-3 small)

  • Preheat the oven to 420 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • Slice the sweet potatoes into medallions and roast in the oven for 30-45 minutes.

    There’s not too many sweet potato recipes out there that I like but this one is definitely going to get bookmarked. The patties taste so much better than store-bought sausage patties. They are filling and satiating and they also make an excellent grab-and-go breakfast. They also have this extra sweet and rich flavor and I think the secrets are the sweet potatoes and the mustard!
