breakfast sausage lettuce wraps recipe

When we look at our calendar in the morning and we see that it’s gonna be a long day today, we can easily think of something that will fuel us to get things going. Perhaps, a pancake or some waffles to go along a nice cup of joe! But, do you really think that’s gonna keep you fully charged up for the rest of the day – or at least half of it?

No! While they can boost your energy in a snap, they are not meant to sustain that. Why? Because it’s sugar! And after that sugar rush, you’re gonna go into a sugar crash phase where you’re energy will start to deplete; hence, you need more sugar. And since it’s your busy day today, you’re not gonna have enough time to run over to the next doughnut shop to grab some. 

So, think about it. Is sugar really going to help you throughout the rest of the day?

Well, you probably know the answer already. 

And, we’re not here to promote this recipe. Instead, we’re here to promote the best way that you can prepare for a long day.

Equipment

  • blender

Ingredients

For the Sausage Patties:

  • 1 pound chicken thighs roughly chopped
  • 1/2 cup fresh mushrooms sliced
  • 1 ea small apple peeled, cored, and chopped
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • salt and pepper to taste

For the Wrap:

  • 1 ea head medium-sized lettuce iceberg, romaine, or butterhead
  • 1 ea large tomato thinly sliced into 6 rings
  • 1 ea medium-size onion sliced into rings

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 400ºF.
  • Combine all the sausage ingredients into a high-powered blender or food processor and pulse into a fine-chop consistency. Do not overprocess.
  • Form the mixture into 6 patties. Place the patties on a foil-lined rimmed baking sheet and broil, turning once, for about 6 minutes per side or until the internal temperature reaches 165ºF.
  • Rest for 5 minutes before assembly.
  • To assemble, sandwich 1 patty, 1 tomato slice, and 1 to 2 onion rings inside 2 to 4 lettuce leaves.

Notes

  • For a much leaner version, replace the chicken thighs with chicken breasts.
  • You may also use the lettuce, tomato, and onions as a salad instead of a wrap.
  • Alternatively, you may choose to sear the patties in a cast iron or a sauté pan. Likewise, the internal temperature should reach 165ºF.
