It is really fun and surprisingly easy to make your own sausage patties. Here, we season ground chicken with herbs and spices, form into patties, and cook them in a skillet while the biscuits bake. Just two ingredients and a few minutes are all you need to make these tasty biscuits. If you’d like, you can scramble a few eggs in the skillet once the sausages are finished cooking and then tuck them into the sandwich.


Self-rising flour

2 cup(s), plus more for dusting

Low-fat buttermilk

¾ cup(s)

Cooking spray

1 spray(s)

98% fat-free uncooked ground chicken breast

10 oz

Dried oregano

1 tsp

Dried thyme

1 tsp

Garlic powder

1 tsp

Kosher salt

1 tsp


1 tsp

Ground sage

½ tsp

Packed light brown sugar

½ tsp

Black pepper

½ tsp, coarsely ground


  1. Preheat oven to 425°F. Line small baking sheet with parchment paper. Using fork, in medium bowl, mix flour and buttermilk until clumpy dough is formed. Gather dough and gently divide into 5 equal portions. Place dough on baking sheet, spacing portions 1 to 2 inches apart. Brush tops with buttermilk. Bake until biscuits are puffed, golden brown, and cooked through, 12 to 14 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, using your hands, in medium bowl, thoroughly mix chicken, oregano, thyme, garlic powder, salt, paprika, sage, brown sugar, and black pepper. Form mixture into 5 patties, each about 21⁄2 inches wide.
  3. Coat medium skillet with nonstick spray and heat over medium. Add sausage patties and cook until golden brown and cooked through, 2 to 3 minutes per side.
  4. Cut biscuits in half. Make sandwiches with biscuits and sausage patties. Serve sandwiches hot.
  5. Serving size: 1 sandwich
