Gluten-free and sugar-free, this Low FODMAP Breakfast Sausage recipe offers a classic breakfast staple without the garlic or onion powder!



  • 1 Tbsp. dried sage
  • 1 tsp. black pepper
  • 1 tsp. dried fennel seeds
  • 1 tsp. dried marjoram or thyme
  • ½ tsp. sea salt
  • ½ tspred pepper flakes
  • 1 lb. ground pork
  • 1 lb. ground turkey


  1. Mix together sage, black pepper, fennel, marjoram, salt, and red pepper in a small bowl.
  2. In a large bowl, add pork, turkey, and spice mixture. Using your hands, mix well and form into patties.
  3. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Once hot, add patties and cook 5 minutes per side, or until done.


Marjoram: Marjoram has not yet been tested for FODMAP content by Monash. As a small amount is used and all other tested herbs are low FODMAP, I do not believe it will be an issue for most individuals. However, if you’re on the FODMAP elimination phase and want to be “safe”, thyme is a suitable substitute.

Red Pepper Flakes: Peppers and chilies contain capsaicin, which contributes to their spiciness. Capsaicin may be a non-FODMAP trigger for some individuals with IBS.
