Food | Vegetarian Breakfast Sausage Patties

Major 🔑 Alert!!


Start by sorting through dried lentils carefully to ensure there is no debris or rocks within your
legumes. Rinse and soak for 30 minutes. 

To cook lentils: Bring about 2.5 cups of water and one cup of lentils to a boil. Reduce heat, and minced onions and simmer, uncovered, for 15 to 20 minutes or until lentils reach desired tenderness. Drain well and lightly mash.

Tip: Too much moisture will result in a mushy patty.  

Add oats and stir until combined with the lentil/onion mixture. 

In a food processor or high-speed blender, pulse mushroom into a chunky paste. 

In a large bowl, fold mushroom paste into the lentil/onion mixture. 

Stir in dried spices, salt, and brown sugar. 

This is where you can get creative. Adjust the spices to your favorite taste in sausage. I tend to like sage, heat and sweet, so you'll notice those incorporated into the ingredients list pictured above.

Once everything is combined, in a large skillet over medium-high heat, oil lightly with olive oil cooking spray. 

Form mixtures into patties (about 1/8 cup of mixture per patty) and pan fry until browned on each side. This should take about 2-3 minutes for each side. 

Take much care not to burn the patties. Scorched bean paste will definitely taste bitter. 
Depending on the size, you'll make about 20 - 25 patties. 

Serving Size: 3 patties

These patties taste great when accompanied with other breakfast staples. For example, try a scrambled egg with sauteed sweet pepper, red onion, and spinach. 

If you're vegan, you can increase your sauteed veggie side and omit eggs altogether.

This is one of my favorite ways to start the day. Not only is this meal inexpensive, but yet also a super nutritious, and quick and easy breakfast option. This meal gives me the feeling of fullness and energy without the heaviness of something like a stack of pancakes. This recipe will make at least 20 patties, I portion the patties and freeze the leftovers. I prefer to re-warm this meal prep in a large skillet over medium heat while also preparing my morning eggs.
