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.
