You are going to love these - so quick and easy to prepare once you have the sausages cooked.  We loved them - such meaty, good protein bites. The chicken is from a rotisserie chicken, so that couldn't be easier.  One rotisserie chicken makes about 4 cups (1L) chopped chicken.

I chopped the chicken into small pieces and then chopped the sausages in a food processor to chop them really finely.  Super easy doing it this way and we actually had them for supper with a big salad on the side, but you could just as easily have them for breakfast alongside some fried tomatoes and an egg, if desired.

If you have never made your own patties, this is a good one to start with as it is so easy.  Not too many spices required as the mayonnaise is flavorful enough along with the chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley.  These are so yummy to just grab out of the refrigerator when you want a healthy, high-protein snack to still your appetite.  I sometimes struggle to get enough protein in a day; however, when I make these it's no problem for me.  They are just so tasty, that I keep going back for more during the day.

These are savory patties, so I sometimes pair them with some fruit on the side, like cantaloupe or even avocado or tomatoes or a salad with a slightly sweet dressing.

These make it very easy to start the day off with enough protein.  Did you know there is a tribe in Panama called the Buglere and they practically eat their weight in bananas to get enough protein.  Your body will typically continue to make you hungry until you get enough protein to sustain yourself for the day.  Sometimes we get tired of eggs for breakfast.  I like to change things up with pancakes, crepes, sausage patties and so on.

I haven't checked lately, but maybe homemade patties are cheaper than store-bought.  I think they tend to be more flavorful than the kinds you can buy.  Homemade is often better as they don't contain anything but good old regular ingredients and no sugar.  Often even homemade chicken sausage patties contain lots of maple syrup.  I might make a recipe sometime that is sweet-savory without using sugar or real maple syrup.

Breakfast sausage patties are a great change of pace for breakfast.  You can change these up a bit if you like with a little thyme added or garlic powder.  If you like you can use your food processor to grind the chicken finer as well as the sausage.  You could use ground pork and ground chicken.  I even seen people add fennel seeds to their patties.  

You could add chopped onions, red pepper flakes, different cheeses.  Your imagination is the only limit.  I would suggest using a good nonstick skillet.  There are many substitutions possible, depending on what you have at home.  This is a healthy breakfast.  If you want to add a sweet component, adding some chopped, finely diced apple could do it, but that will add a few carbs, so keep that in mind.
