I love these burgers. They're made from good pork mince but taste like sausages. It's great if you're looking to cut down a bit on your processed meat but still have a sausage craving.

These burgers are paleo, dairy-free, AIP compliant and gluten-free and they just take a few minutes to cook.

Breakfast Pork and Leek Burgers
Makes 4
1 small onion, peeled and chopped finely
1 tsp coconut oil
pinch of salt
1 leek, trimmed, washed and finely sliced
400g pork mince
good pinch of mace
pinch of sage

Fry the onion in the coconut oil, with the salt, until softened. Add the leek, and continue to cook, until the leek has started to soften too. Scrape the mixture into a bowl and leave to cool. 

Once completely cooled, add the pork mince, the mace and the sage, and mix well. Combine to form patties, and fry them for 5-6 minutes, or until cooked all the way through. Gorgeous with a fried egg (if you're not strict AIP) and beautiful with greens. Veggies for breakfast? 

You betcha.

Oh, and see me making these burgers (without the sage and onion but add it in when you fry the leeks if you want to) on my You Tube Channel...


  1. How is this AIP if the recipe calls for onions?

    1. Hi - thanks for your message, sorry I haven't replied before now, I was on a break for health reasons but have just started posting again, now I'm better. Onions are AIP compliant, which protocol are you using that says you can't use onions?
