Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Combine pork, maple syrup, salt, sage, onion powder, black pepper, red pepper flakes, marjoram, coriander, and cloves in a bowl; mix well. Form into 10 small patties.

  • Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Working in batches, add patties, and fry until no longer pink in the center and the juices run clear, 3 to 4 minutes per side. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 160 degrees F (73 degrees C).

Cook's Note:

Do not fry at a higher heat, as the sugars in the maple syrup will burn.

Editor's Note:

1.19.20 Breakfast sandwiches today for a lazy Sunday morning, and they were good! This sausage has perfect balance between the sweet maple syrup and a little kick from the red pepper flakes, and when combined with spot on spices, you’re in for a treat. Admittedly, I’ve been brand loyal to Jimmy Dean® Sausage for years, but this recipe gives it some stiff competition. Thanks for sharing, very good recipe that definitely will be made again (and again). Read More
