Cherry Tarragon Breakfast Sausages

  • Yield 14 pieces

The combination of the sweet cherries with the aromatic, slightly licorice taste of the tarragon in these Paleo-approved breakfast sausages will infuse your morning with warmth.



1/2 cup dried cherries
2 tablespoons diced onion
2 tablespoons fresh parsley, minced
2 tablespoons fresh tarragon, minced
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon pepper
1 pound ground pork
2 tablespoons coconut oil for frying


  1. Place the cherries in a bowl of hot water for about 10 minutes to slightly reconstitute them.
  2. Combine the onion, parsley, tarragon, salt and pepper in a medium-sized bowl and mix well. Add the cherries when soft, and then add the ground pork. Mix all ingredients well.
  3. Form small patties (I usually can fit them in the palm of my hand) and place on a plate. Heat a skillet to medium heat and add some of the coconut oil. Place about 5 to 7 of the patties in the pan.
  4. Fry the patties until brown, about 5 minutes. Flip and flatten with the back of your spatula. Cook another 5 minutes or until brown. Test one sausage to make sure the center is completely cooked. Enjoy!
