I’m on a roll! Made the sausage patties for this incredible breakfast last night – popped them into the frying pan this morning with a sliced up apple and some cinnamon and it was SO good.


I’m very happy with my new cookbook purchase – this recipe comes from the breakfast section of Against All Grain by Danielle Walker.

Cinnamon Apples & Sausage
1 lb. ground pork
1 tsp. dried sage
2 tsp. maple syrup
1/4 tsp. coarse sea salt
1/4 tsp. black pepper
1/4 tsp. nutmeg
1/4 tsp. red pepper flakes
1/8 tsp. marjoram
4 apples
1 tsp. cinnamon

In a mixing bowl, add sage, maple syrup, salt, pepper, nutmeg, red pepper and marjoram to pork. Mix well with hands. Make into 12 small sausage patties. You can store these, uncooked in the fridge until you’re ready, or make them all at once.

To prepare, add sausages to a skillet over medium heat. Brown on both sides and remove from pan. Add one sliced apple to pan with about 1/2 tsp. cinnamon. Sauté for about three minutes, then add sausage back in. Finish sautéing for another minute or two and serve hot.

Yum! Makes 4 servings.
