The Sutter Street Grill in Folsom hand-forms its giant breakfast sausage patty.

Sausage-patty heaven is in Folsom

Sure, Sacramento hosted the weeklong Bacon Fest in January in celebration of that smoky, crispy pork product that almost everybody loves.

But let’s not forget about the glory of sausage, despite the old saying, “Laws are like sausages — it is better not to see them being made.”

Breakfast links and patties, bratwurst, bockwurst, bangers, chorizo, linguica, kielbasa and good old frankfurters — the list goes on, and they’re all good — for carnivores, at least.

If you’re looking for a great sausage patty to go with eggs, hashbrowns, toast and a glass of ice-cold milk, try the Sutter Street Grill in Historic Folsom. It’s motto: “Good ‘ol home cookin’.” The patty is big, juicy and slightly greasy, with just the right seasoning. Did we say it’s big? As in huge.

“We get the bulk meat from Del Monte and we form the patties ourselves,” said Bebe Hubbard, who’s been a server at the breakfast-lunch spot for 20 years. “That’s what we make our sausage gravy with, too. The patties go out of the kitchen so fast that it’s hard for us to keep them in the house. When people ask me what my favorite breakfast is, I tell them it’s the sausage patty and eggs.”

Excellent choice, Bebe.
