Pistachio Breakfast Sausage Patties
This breakfast sausage patty recipe transforms plain breakfast sausage into something special with a few simple additions. The surprise ingredient: pistachios! Plenty of black pepper and a big pinch of cayenne make this breakfast sausage pleasantly spicy--use less if you prefer. The recipe, which can be made ahead and refrigerated or frozen, yields 8 small sausage patties, but can easily be doubled and cooked in two batches.
Make Ahead Tip: Prepare through Step 2 and refrigerate for up to 1 day or individually wrap and freeze for up to 3 months; thaw overnight in the refrigerator before cooking.
