Enough with the frozen sausage already. Not only is it easy enough to make your own breakfast patties, but it's a whole lot tastier—and healthier—than settling for the store-bought stuff.

All it takes for a hearty, mouthwatering DIY sausage is ground pork, spices, and a bit of maple syrup (yes, syrup). There's 10 grams of protein to help keep you full, plus a savory flavor that's hard to beat.

Pair your patties with the usual bacon and eggs, or throw them in a breakfast burrito topped with hot sauce.

What You Need:

  • 1 lb ground pork

  • 3 1/2 tsp fine salt

  • 1 1/2 tsp black pepper

  • 1 tsp dried sage

  • 1 Tbsp maple syrup

How to Do It:

  1. Using your hands, fold the sage, salt, and black pepper into the pork. Mix for one minute before you add the maple syrup, and then mix for another 4 minutes.

  2. Divide the mixture into 8 portions and shape them into 2-inch patties. Cook the patties in a large skillet over medium-low heat until golden brown on both sides, about 3 minutes per side.
