Breakfast is the most important meal of the day so we don’t joke about it. This no-egg breakfast is not complicated at all. It is a good choice for a good day. Protein-filled, and with the apple you won’t be loosing out on your vitamins and minerals.


900 g minced meat
2 pcs apple
4 tbsp honey
4 tsp fennel seeds
1 tsp ground sage
2 tsp salt
1 tsp chilli powder
1 tsp rosemary
1 tsp black pepper
6 tbsp butter
2 tsp garlic powder
2 tsp onion powder
2 tsp paprika


Toast the fennel seeds in a small saucepan over medium heat for not more than 5 minutes or until fragrant. Also, dice the apple and set aside.

Combine all the other ingredients except the butter in a large bowl and mix thoroughly. Divide the sausage mixture into 16 patties and flatten with your hands.

Melt the butter in a large cast-iron saucepan and add 3-4 patties. Allow the patties to cook for about 5-6 minutes per side until golden brown and cooked through. Keep the heat low to enable it to cook without burning. Repeat the same process for the remaining. Add more butter if necessary. Serve.
