Making your own homemade breakfast sausage patties means you can skip the added sugars but still get all the great flavor!
After years of declaring that I didn’t really like breakfast sausages, I seem to be turning into quite an aficionado. Whereas I used to find the slightly sweet flavour rather off-putting, I’ve come to find that my tastes have changed and I quite like it now. I would even go so far as to say I crave it at times. Perhaps it helps that we have choices beyond the Jimmy Dean’s of the world now and that I’ve tasted much higher quality sausages lately, both from the store and in unique restaurants and cafes. When the flavour of the pork and other spices isn’t masked by distasteful additives
I’ve taken a particular liking to maple breakfast sausages lately. Maybe it’s the Canadian in me, but maple-flavoured things are a serious weakness. My whole family loves both the sausage links and patties from Jones Dairy Farm, which are gluten-free and don’t contain the soy, dextrose, BHT & BHA that other brands use. Their maple sausages are somewhat addicting, actually and I could easily eat too many in one sitting. My kids would be perfectly happy to make a full breakfast (or lunch, or dinner) out of those sausages!
But as I love to experiment in the kitchen, I had to try my hand at making a sugar-free low carb maple breakfast sausage. And although I do own a sausage maker, I decided to simplify and form them into patties so that anyone can make them. If you have the time, these are pretty easy to mix up and make a fun breakfast option. And if you don’t have the time, the all-natural, gluten-free sausage patties from Jones Dairy Farm are a really great option.

Do I have to used the Maple Syrup or this is option?
It’s maple flavouring and it’s entirely optional.
I make these minus the maple syrup and swerve
they are fabulous.
For a teatime spicy treat I add chilli flakes.
This recipe sounds wonderful! Thanks for sharing!
Maple Sage Breakfast Sausage Patties
1 lb ground pork
2 tbsp chopped fresh sage
2 tbsp granular Swerve Sweetener 1 tsp maple extract
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
1/4 tsp garlic powder
1/8 tsp cayenne
In a large bowl, combine pork, sage, Swerve, maple, salt, pepper, garlic powder and cayenne. Use hands to mix thoroughly. Form into 8 even patties and flatten to about 1 inch thick.
Add a little oil or butter to a large skillet over medium heat. Add patties and cook about 3 to 4 minutes per side, until an instant read thermometer inserted in the center reaches 145F.
Makes about 4 servings.

Ladies when you click on the link to Swerve go to the search menu and type in Maple Sausage
You’ll be able to find it.
I’m not seeing it anymore I seen it for a minute and then it’s gone
Huh, maybe Swerve is having issues with their website?
I’m not seeing a recipe anywhere on this page. I see a link for another recipe (or maybe it’s the original). I clicked on a link to get to this page for a recipe, so hoping that I wasn’t brought here to click on yet, another link to get to the actual recipe. I think your dish sounds delicious, I just wish I could find where the actual recipe is located.
I know, they are having trouble with the site so they are working on it!
There is no recipe!!! If you could list it here in the comments that would at least help out a little!! Please and Thank You!!

Click the link for the recipe on Swerve Sweetener.
These look delish! Will have to try them soon!
Sounds very tasty. I have a lot of sage in the garden. I think I’ll give this a try. I have a good butternut soup recipe that uses sage and sausage. This may work in it too!
Looks like a great breakfast!!!
