Sausage patties can be made from many types of meat, including pork, beef, chicken or turkey. They consist of ground meat - often a variety with a high fat content - that is mixed with seasonings and formed into patties. These patties are easy to cook because the fat content serves as a natural grease and keeps the patties from sticking to the surface of a frying pan. Sausage patties can be served with any meal but are most commonly served for breakfast, and almost anyone can cook them without any trouble.

Step 1

Preheat your stove top frying pan to medium heat.

Step 2

Place a small amount of cooking oil, about 1 teaspoon into the pan and let it heat up.

Step 3

Preheat your oven to 200 degrees Fahrenheit.

Step 4

Place your sausage patties in the preheated frying pan and cook them for three minutes per side, flipping once. The sausage should turn a pale golden brown color if it is pork, which is the most common type of meat used to make sausage.

Step 5

Transfer the sausage patties to the oven, keeping them either in the frying pan or placing them onto a baking sheet.

Step 6

Bake the patties for another five to seven minutes in the oven to give them a crunchy crust, then remove and serve.
