Pork & Beef Breakfast Patties

“How much protein do I need” is a question I get often from clients, and as someone who has experimented with dozens of different diets, I can tell you one thing; there a much higher probability of someone not getting enough protein versus getting too much. I personally don’t count macros, but I know I do MUCH better on a higher protein diet, particularly with animal protein. These BREAKFAST PATTIES are an easy and delicious way to incorporate more protein into your day, and I guarantee that you will love eating them 🤤. I enjoy them with fried eggs, sautéed veggies and homemade mayonnaise.

Here’s the recipe, which yields about 10 patties:


  • 1lb each of ground pork and ground beef
  • half a medium size yellow onion
  • 3 stalks of celery
  • 3 cloves of garlic
  • 1/4 cup of fresh parsley
  • 1 tso of ground sage
  • 1 tsp of sea salt
  • 2 tbsp of evoo (extra virgin olive oil)
  • black pepper, to taste
  • bacon fat or ghee for frying
  • extra sea salt and sage for frying


  1. Place all ingredients except for meat in the food processor (a mixer would also work). *This step isn’t mandatory but really helps keeping these patties moist!
  2. Once ingredients are mixed well, add the ground meat to the processor and blend until mixture is somewhat uniform.
  3. Take mixture out of the processor and form 3/4 inch thick patties.
  4. Heat up a cast iron pan on high temp and melt bacon fat or ghee.
  5. Season each patty with additional salt and ground sage.
  6. Place patties in the hot pan and cook for about 5 minutes on each side, adjusting temperature as needed. Patties should be cooked through but still super juicy in the middle.
