Making your own sausage isn't tough. Try making Apple Pork Breakfast Sausage

Making your own breakfast sausage isn’t hard. You can grind your own pork or purchase ground pork from your butcher. It’s best to mix this ahead of time and let all the flavors blend together. If I can, I mix it the night before. In the morning, I shape it into patties and cook.

This Apple Pork Breakfast Sausage recipe can easily be doubled to feed your hungry guests. In addition to this sausage recipe, I also make Breakfast Sausage.

  • 1/2 cup apple cider
  • 3/4 cup apples diced
  • 1 pound ground pork
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon white pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground sage
  • 1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • 1 teaspoon maple syrup
  • 2 Tablespoons apple cider
  1. Put 1/2 cup apple cider and diced apples in a saute pan. Cook over medium heat until cider has been reduced and apples are soft.

  2. Mash the apples with the back of a spoon. Leave a few chunks of apples.

  3. Remove from pan and allow apple mixture to cool. 

Mix Sausage
  1. In a bowl, add ground pork, salt, garlic powder, pepper, sage, red pepper flakes and maple syrup.

  2. Mix all ingredients together with your hands. Add remaining apple cider and mix again. 

  3. Cover and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes. 

  4. Form into patties and cook over medium-low heat until cooked through. Keep an eye on the patties so they don't burn. The apple cider and syrup can burn quickly if not watched.
