Enjoying a breakfast sandwich becomes a bit more challenging when one can’t eat gluten or pork. Therefore, I’m sharing with you my own homemade recipe for gluen free chicken breakfast sausage patties. Enjoy them for breakfast, or prepare them for a wonderful “Brinner” spread. 

Canyon Bakehouse Gluten Free English Muffins

What Is Brinner? And Where Did you Get Those English Muffins? 

If you’ve never heard this term before, it means “breakfast for dinner.” You can enjoy my gluten free chicken sausage as a side with buckwheat pancakes or my gluten free Blueberry French Toast Casserole. However, I enjoy them as part of a breakfast sandwich, preferably with Canyon Bakehouse’s Gluten Free English Muffins. 

These whole grain English muffins are shelf stable, and are gluten, dairy, nut and soy free. Use the Canyon store locator to find them in a store near you. Don’t eat grains? Try Mikey’s grain free English Muffins, or Lila Ruth’s recipe for Grain Free English Muffins

What Ingredients Do You Use in Your Chicken Sausage?

That’s a great question. I make my gluten free chicken sausage with ground chicken, and Penzey’s Fox Point seasoning. This chicken sauage recipe also uses applesauce. Why?  It gives it just a hint of sweet, while also tenderizing the meat. 

Other than that, it’s simple salt, pepper and onion. When I originally made this recipe in 2017, I used this Lakeshore Drive Seasoning I received in a subscription box. While it’s still available, I find myself shopping at Penzey’s more often. I love using their dried lemon and orange peel in baked goods! 

Tips on Frying the Perfect Egg

My gluten free sausage partners well with a fried egg for a delicious gluten free breakfast sandwich. When I’m in a hurry in the morning, I’ll often just crack an egg into a small dish, give a quick whisk with a fork, and cook it in a pan like an omelete. Add cheese or other spices as you please. 

However, if you want a fried egg, this method seems to work best for me. First, I oil and heat my 10″ iron skillet. Usually on medium heat for 5 minutes. Then I crack the egg, add it to the pan, THEN turn down the heat. This way it cooks the egg white thoroughly, but doesn’t overcook it. Then I allow it to cook about 10 min. more until the whites are set. Visit The Incredible Egg site for more tips on how to fry an egg, perfectly
