These Brown Rice Breakfast Sausages are going to blow you away! It’s my favorite food to eat now-a-days. I’ve been posting pictures on my Instagram page lately but, at long last, here’s the recipe! I must admit, the idea of Brown Rice Breakfast Sausage seems a bit odd. But think about it. There are quinoa burgers out there, even brown rice burgers. Brown rice is a hearty grain when cooked. They hold up really well in this recipe! Once cooked, these Brown Rice Breakfast Sausages will remind you of actual breakfast sausage. I say the secret is in the sage but you can be the judge! Pair these with pancakes, tofu scramble or any other favorite breakfast/brunch item!

  • 1 tbsp ground flax seeds
  • 3 tablespoons water
  • 1 cup cooked brown rice
  • ¾ cup rolled oats
  • ½ tbsp coconut oil
  • 2 tbsp tamari
  • 2 tsp ground sage
  • ½ tsp thyme (or oregano)
  • ¼ tsp nutmeg
  • 1  tsp black pepper
  • 1 tbsp olive oil, for cooking
  • 1 pinch sea salt, optional


  1. In a small bowl (or cup), stir together the flax and water. Set aside.
  2. In a food processor, add dry oats and pulse on high six or seven times. Now add the rice and pulse a few more times. Add remaining ingredients including the flax/water mixture (do not add the olive oil & seas salt) and blend till just mixed- Careful not to over process.
  3. With moist hands, form balls the size of a ping pong ball and then flatten into little patties.
  4. Add the olive oil to a non-stick frying pan and heat over medium high heat.
  5. Cook the patties on each side until they are browned. Once done, transfer to a paper towel to blot off any excess oil before serving. Sprinkle with a pinch of sea salt, optional.
