Recipe by JackieGK
This is a recipe from the Biggest Loser cookbook and is a personal favorite of mine. We ask our butcher to ground pork tenderloin. I usually have this for breakfast with a Western Alternative Bagel, egg/egg substitute and FF cheese. You can also chopp this up in omlets or other egg type dishes. A very healthy alternative to sausage. If you don't like pork, ground turkey or chicken is easily substituted. Don't be intimidated to make your own sausage, it's easy, and takes no time at all.
- 8 ounces pork tenderloin, ground or 8 ounces ground pork

- 1 1⁄2 teaspoons minced garlic
- 1⁄2 teaspoon dried thyme
- 1⁄4 teaspoon ground sage

- Divide into 4 portions and shape into patties.
- TO PREPARE AND EAT NOW: Cook in non-stick skillet for one to two minutes per side until cooked through. May spray pan with cooking spray if desired.
