We all know that sausage isn’t exactly the healthiest food. How many calories in a sausage patty are there? The average 2 ounce frozen sausage patty has 152 calories in it along with 12 grams of fat. A McDonald’s sausage patty has 170 calories in and 15 grams of fat. Another popular sausage patty is the one made by Jimmy Dean. Jimmy Dean sausage patties have 230 calories in just one as well as 22 grams of fat.
Sausage patties are an approved food on low carb diet plans, but they should be consumed in moderation. Why? Not only is the high calorie content a concern, but the amount of artery clogging saturated fat as well. The amount of saturated fat in a sausage patty varies from 30-50 percent. That’s way too high. Saturated fat is responsible for things like high cholesterol, heart disease, stroke, and obesity.
There’s just something comforting about putting some sizzling sausage patties in the frying pan in the morning. The crackle of the grease and smell of the cooking sausage excites the taste buds and prepares them for a delicious treat.
So if you’re going to enjoy a sausage patty now and again make sure it is only on occasion. You can also try the reduced fat varieties of sausage out there that are made out of both pork and turkey.
