homemade maple flavored breakfast sausage recipe

The plan was to purchase breakfast sausage from the store but it was all frozen and I didn’t have the time to let thaw out so I decided to put my own together. I purchased the ground pork for this recipe but you could easily grind your own if you have a grinder available. Whenever I do this I try and make a little extra so I can freeze some of the sausage. This recipe is mildly seasoned so you might want to add the cayenne pepper to taste if you want to turn up the heat a little bit. Fresh homemade breakfast sausage is a nice treat and it’s not as hard to make as you think; give it a try.
