Making your own breakfast sausage is easier than you might think. Pear adds a subtle sweetness to this spiced breakfast side. Serve with eggs and fruit to complete the meal.

How to Make It

Combine first 10 ingredients in a medium bowl. Shape into 8 (1/2-inch-thick) patties. Heat 1 1/2 teaspoons oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add 4 patties; cook 4 minutes. Turn patties over, and cook 3 minutes or until done. Remove patties from pan; drain on paper towels. Repeat procedure with remaining oil and remaining patties.

Really good breakfast sausage! Full of spice and favor, without the fat. Execellent compliment to eggs. But also good for dinner.
