Maple Basil Breakfast Sausage + Freezer Cooking for AIP Cookbook + a HUGE giveaway

This recipe is one of 100+ AIP freezer cooking recipes found in the cookbook
‘Freezer Cooking for the Paleo AIP.’ AIP Freezer Cooking is a huge time saver.




One of the biggest keys to success on the AIP/Paleo journey is preparation. I often joke that the boy scout motto of always being prepared is my mantra for AIP life. I mean how many non-AIPers do you know with a can of tuna and fork in their purse and no shame when it comes to taking a packed lunch into a restaurant. We know that preparation is key and we make sure we’re always ready whatever the situation may be.

My favorite style of preparation is freezer cooking and TODAY, an amazing new AIP resource hits the figurative stands (or the internet waves or something like that.) This resource will bring a revolution in the AIP freezer cooking world and you’re going to want to get your hands on it as soon as possible.

Sadly, this past week I didn’t find myself as prepared as usual. In the last 2 weeks, my hubby and I have packed up our home, sent a shipment back to the states, gone on a two-day trip to Vietnam and moved to a new place in Abu Dhabi. If I had this book a week earlier I would have loved to fill my freezer with “AIP convenience foods” to make this transition easier. Instead we’ve had to go out to eat a few times too many. Now that I have this book, I can’t wait to build a freezer stash for times just like this.

Breakfast on the AIP can be tricky on the best of days. That’s where this breakfast sausage comes in. Make a big batch over the weekend and you have AIP convenience food at the ready. Pop one or two in the oven while getting ready and a hot breakfast is served. Pair the sausage with some fruit and a few leftover veggies for a complete meal.


  • 2 pounds ground beef (or a mix of beef, lamb, pork)
  • 1 tablespoon dried ginger
  • 1 tablespoon powdered turmeric
  • 1 ½ tablespoons dried basil
  • 2 teaspoons pink salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 2 tablespoons pure maple syrup


  1. Preparation: (a) Mix all ingredients in a large mixing bowl, making sure all of the seasonings are well distributed. (b) Form into 16 patties and gently flatten with your hands. (c) Place in a single layer on a silicone mat or baking sheet.
  2. Freezing: (a) Freeze in a single layer for several hours until frozen through, then remove from the tray or mat and place in a storage container with each piece separated by a piece of parchment paper. (b) Make sure they are completely frozen before doing this or they will stick to the paper and you’ll have to thaw them completely to peel off the paper. (c) Store in a storage container in the freezer for up to 3 months.
  3. Serving: (a) On the day you want to eat, remove the number of pieces you need from the freezer by carefully peeling off the parchment paper. (b) Preheat oven to 325 degrees F.
