Easy Maple Breakfast Sausage Patties

Last Updated on August 26, 2022

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 breakfast 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.
