Easy Maple Breakfast Sausage Patties

Our friends at Paleohacks have another great recipe to start your morning right. Check out this recipe for these juicy breakfast patties, made with heritage-breed pork sausage and pure maple syrup!

You’ll jump out of bed to fry up this easy breakfast with only a handful of ingredients. Pork sausage is seasoned with savory herbs and sweet maple syrup for a satisfying start to your day. This recipe makes 10 patties, so it’s perfect for a Sunday meal prep if you want a grab-and-go breakfast on the ready all week!

ButcherBox’s heritage-breed pork sausage comes pre-seasoned with sage and black pepper, so you only need a few extra ingredients to drive home the breakfast flavor you know and love. Pure maple syrup adds rich sweetness, but don’t add too much—a little bit goes a long way. Thyme and onion powder add extra herb goodness and tie the recipe together.

Simply mix everything together with your hands and grill them on a cast-iron pan to sear up golden brown on the outside, and tender and juicy on the inside.

Serve your breakfast patties alongside these Paleo favorites:


  • You can swap the sausage for ground beef, turkey, or chicken. 
  • To make this recipe keto-friendly, omit the maple syrup. 
  • If you are using unseasoned ground pork, add 1 teaspoon dry rubbed sage, 1/2 teaspoon black pepper, and 1/2 teaspoon sea salt. 
  • Refrigerate cooked patties in an airtight container for up to 1 week.
