You can still enjoy sausage on a low-sodium diet, as long as you make some simple ingredient swaps. These tasty breakfast sausage patties are a little sweet, a little savory, and taste fantastic. They are a delicious no-salt-added alternative to traditional breakfast sausage – and a great recipe for a low sodium lifestyle.

Start by mixing ground pork with herbs and spices, form into patties, and cook for 10 minutes. I love making my own sausage, as I can add great flavor by using a homemade spice mixture. I love serving these up with a traditional breakfast of eggs and toast and a drizzle of maple syrup on my sausage(yum!). It’s a fantastic weekend brunch, especially if you are cooking for family or guests.

We love getting fresh seasonal produce, meats, and low sodium pantry staples delivered through Misfits Market. It saves time & money on groceries, and also helps reduce food waste! Highly recommend checking them out if you haven’t yet – get $10 off your first box today.

  • Lean Ground Pork – I used a ground pork with no added salt or preservatives, and it came to 65 mg of sodium per 4 ounce serving (for ~4 patties). Like any meat, I try to buy meat that has a nutritional label (rather than the unlabeled generic grocery store packaging) so I can tell the exact ingredients and amount of sodium in the meat. You could also make this recipe with the same amount of ground chicken or lean ground turkey.
  • Maple syrup: for the perfect hint of sweetness! I recommend using a pure maple syrup or brown sugar in this recipe.  Make sure you use pure maple syrup which has just 5mg of sodium per serving, and not ‘pancake syrup’ which can contain additives and preservatives.
  • Garlic Powder
  • Onion Powder
  • Low Sodium Worcestershire Sauce: for that unbelievably tangy umami flavor that bring the classic taste to these burgers!  I love using this low sodium Worcestershire sauce in lieu of salt, at only 45mg sodium per serving, a little goes a long way on flavor.
  • Ground Sage – for a wonderful herby flavor, I love adding sage to sausage!
  • Black Pepper
  • Dried Rosemary – I liked the extra herby flavor of rosemary, but you can use ground fennel seed or Italian seasoning too, for a more homemade Italian sausage vibe.
  • Red Pepper Flakes – optional, if you like a little heat! Or you can use cayenne pepper. I added them in my sausage patties and it was just the right amount of spice, highly recommend.

How To Make Sausage Without Salt

  1. In a large bowl, add all ingredients: ground pork, maple syrup, Worcestershire sauce, onion powder, garlic powder, sage and rosemary, and chili flakes if using. Mix well to combine.
  2. Heat a cast iron pan (or nonstick skillet) over medium heat. If you are using a regular pan (not non-stock) you can add a little olive oil or cooking spray if desired.
  3. Form the ground sausage mixture into 1-inch balls, about the size of a golf ball. Press them gently into patties. You should make between 12-15 patties (I made 14) depending on the size.
  4. Add the patties in a single layer to the cast iron pan, and cook for 4 minutes on each side until the patties begin to brown. Patties will be done when they reach an internal temperature of 145 degrees Fahrenheit.
  5. Serve hot, and store leftovers in an airtight container for up to 3 days.

    1. Hi Lori – I actually froze the sausage after I cooked it, while it was in the patties. Then I defrosted and reheated them later, and they turned out great! I haven’t tested freezing it before cooking, but if you do please let me know how it turns out.
      Thanks, Kelly
