home made breakfast maple sausage recipe

Homemade Maple Breakfast Sausage

by Joe on November 8, 2009

breakfastsausage1Today we have a great, quick, and easy sausage recipe. Sausage is great fat guy food, and as such should be a staple of everyone’s tailgate. The best part about making your own sausage is you know exactly what is in it. Everyone has had bad or funky sausage before, you take a bite and it tastes like there are a few chunks of ass in it, which it probably does because a lot of sausage really is just spiced up lips and assholes stuffed into an intestine tube, YUM!! Anyway, here is the recipe…



  • 2 lbs ground porkbreakfastsausage2
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup (for sweeter sausage add another 1-2 teaspoons)
  • 2 teaspoons coarse salt
  • 2 teaspoons fennel seeds
  • 1 teaspoon ground sage
  • 1 teaspoon dry mustard
  • 1 teaspoon course black pepper
  • Your favorite frozen or refrigerated biscuits
  • Cracker Barrel or similar cheddar or other cheese, sliced (optional)


  1. Bake biscuits as directed on package
  2. Combine the dry spices in a bowl and mix
  3. Add pork to the bowl and mix to combine well and evenly distribute the spice mix, don’t be a bitch, use your hands yo!
  4. Add the maple syrup and mix to combine
  5. Form the pork into patties, a little smaller than a hamburger or whatever size you like fatso
  6. Toss the pork onto a heated grill (or pan fry with some oil)
  7. (optional) A minute before pulling the patties off, place slices of cheese on top to melt
  8. Take the biscuits (you didn’t forget them in the oven right?!) split them in half, and assemble the sandwich, duh!

My suggestion for tailgaters is to bake the biscuits the night before or toss them in the oven the morning of the game to bake while you are in the shower dealing with your hangover from the night before.

These sound awesome, instead of the Biscuits maybe we’ll toast some bagels on the grill right next to the sausage, or when in doubt there are always hamburger buns around.
