Apple & Pork Maple Breakfast Sausage

I love utilizing fresh fruits in sausage. They add a beautiful texture, a nice sweetness, and a great flavor. This breakfast sausage recipe came from Glen over at Glen & Friends Cooking as he utilized some local ingredients to make this delicious breakfast sausage.

This fresh sausage can be made into patties or stuffed into sheep casings and formed into links. Either way it’s up to you.

Follow basic fresh sausage preparation practices when making this sausage.
  1. Clean and Sanitize all of your equipment.
  2. Keep your meat and grinder parts super cold (below 34F)
  3. Any liquid that is added to the mince needs to be ice cold
  4. Mix your very chilled meat till the mince becomes very tacky
  5. Stuff the mince into sausage casings and prick out any air pockets
  6. Cook till the internal temperature reaches 155F
