These Maple Sausage Patties are the bomb. The sage and the maple blend together so beautifully and the flavor is incredible. Awesome on a homemade egg and sausage breakfast sandwich!
Print Recipe


  • Non-stick skillet/saucepan


  • 2 tbsp bread crumbs dried
  • 2 tbsp sage fresh, chopped (or 1 teaspoon dried)
  • 1 tbsp rosemary fresh, chopped (or 1/2 teaspoon dried)
  • 1 tbsp thyme fresh, chopped (or 1/2 teaspoon dried)
  • ¼ tsp red pepper flakes or more, to taste
  • 1 tbsp Kosher salt
  • ½ tsp black pepper freshly ground
  • lb ground pork
  • 2 tbsp pure maple syrup
  • ¼ tsp nutmeg ground


  • In a large bowl, stir together the bread crumbs, sage, rosemary, thyme, red pepper flakes, nutmeg, salt, and pepper.
  • Add the ground pork and maple syrup and then use a wooden spoon, or your clean hands, to fold the bread crumbs and herbs into the pork. Gently mix until just combined. Wash your hands and then cover the bowl with plastic wrap and place in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes, or up to overnight.
  • Shape the pork mixture into 10 to 12 patties, about 3 inches in diameter a ½-inch in thickness.
  • Heat a large saucepan/skillet (nonstick works best), over medium heat. Spray with cooking spray, if needed.
  • Add the patties and cook until the bottoms are browned, about 5 minutes (shake them periodically to prevent any sticking).
  • Flip and cook the other sides until browned and the centers feel firm to the touch when pressed with your finger, about another 5 minutes.



If using dried herbs, then go 1 tsp wherever the recipe indicates tbsp.  Example: If using dried sage, go with 2 tsp rather than 2 tbsp, as written in the recipe.
Be sure to use pure maple syrup.  We don't recommend using pancake syrup for these patties.
The uncooked patties can be made and refrigerated up to 24 hours in advance and frozen for up to 1 month.  Completely thaw frozen patties before cooking.
If desired, you can use the seasoned sausage for cooking before making them into patties.  Cook the pork in the skillet and use it in casseroles or breakfast burritos or tacos!
