Tips & Technique for the Best Homemade Breakfast Sausage with Maple

  • For the best maple flavor use pure maple syrup (unless you are following a low carb or keto diet, then see the next tip).
  • To make this recipe keto-friendly, use a keto-approved maple syrup.
  • Store any leftover sausage in an air-tight container in the refrigerator. Use within 5-7 days.


  • What is the difference between Italian sausage and breakfast sausage? The biggest difference between these two types of sausage is the spices used. While breakfast sausage typically features plenty of sage, Italian sausage uses fennel among other spices.
  • Can you make homemade sausage with ground turkey? Yes, you can make this recipe exactly the same way but replace the ground pork with ground turkey.
