Maple Breakfast Sausage


  • 1 pound ground pork
  • 1 pound ground turkey
  • ¼ cup maple syrup
  • 3 cloves garlic (minced)
  • 1 tablespoon fresh sage (chopped)
  • ¾ teaspoon dried thyme (chopped)
  • 1½ teaspoons kosher salt
  • ¾ teaspoon black pepper
  • ¼ teaspoon paprika


Line a rimmed baking sheet with wax paper sprayed lightly with cooking spray, set aside.

Add all ingredients to a large mixing bowl and use hands to mix until just combined.

Spread mixture in an even layer in the prepared baking sheet, about ½-¾ inch thick (this can be adjusted if you prefer a thicker patty).

Spray the rim of a 3½ inch biscuit cutter (or large-mouthed drinking glass) and cut out patties.

If patties are having a hard time staying together, place on wax paper in the freezer for 5-10 minutes before cooking.

Heat vegetable oil (about 1-2 tablespoons) in a large skillet over medium to medium-high heat. Add patties to pan, making sure they aren't touching (you may have to cook in batches), and cook 2-3 minutes per side, until golden brown and cooked through to a temperature of 165° F.

Repeat with remaining patties.
