Maple Sage Sausage Patties


Maple Sage Sausage Breakfast Patties by Ashley of

These maple sage sausage breakfast patties are the perfect balance of sweet and savory. They’re also so simple to make!

Once you start making your own breakfast sausage, you’ll never want to buy it from a store again. Not only are organic/healthy store-bought sausage patties overpriced, but they’re also nowhere near as good as homemade patties. Plus, making sausage patties is so easy! You can make a bunch, freeze them and enjoy them over time.

Have I sold you on making your own patties, yet? If not, just wait. Let me tell you more about these sweet and savory maple sage sausage patties:

They are SO flavorful! The sweet maple flavor shines through and the sage adds a savory earthy flavor to the meat. Those two ingredients combined with a blend of seasonings makes for meat that tastes like a treat!

You can of course drizzle these sausage patties with more maple syrup for an even sweeter flavor if you want to… just an idea 😉

    I just love your blog and looking forward to trying some of your tempting recipes. As I am on a low carb eating plan, I wonder if you would have any substitutes for the maple syrup that you quite often use in your recipes? Thanks

      Thank you, Pam! I’m so happy to hear that 🙂 For sweeteners, I usually use coconut sugar, maple syrup, honey, jaggery, organic cane sugar – not sure if any of those are okay on low carb though…
