You talk about delicious, this sausage is just a wonderful weekend morning breakfast item. Or for that matter, any morning. A great tasting sweet sausage.
I went to our favorite grocer and purchased one pound of ground pork. Be sure it is ground pork with nothing added such as salt, spices or other flavorings. Just pork. I had all the other ingredients needed already here at home and I bet you do too.
I placed the ground pork in a large enough container that I would be able to mix all the ingredients together without much trouble.
And after breaking the ground pork up some as you see above, I added all the other ingredients. as you see below.
As you can see, I cut the waffles up into very small pieces (smaller than your little fingernail). The salt and pepper have been added along with the maple syrup and now it is time to get your hands in there to get a good mix of all the ingredients. Plastic gloves would be good to wear if available but if not, then be sure to give your hands a good washing.
After a good mixing of the meat, spices and syrup, form your Waffle-ly Good sausage into a log shape and place it on a sheet of plastic wrap approximately 15 inches long as seen below.
Now fold one of the long sides of the wrap over the sausage log and roll it up so that it looks like this.
Now grab the two ends of plastic, lift the log off your table and twirl the sausage around and around until you have tighten the plastic wrap so that your sausage looks like this;
And now for an important tip. Place the wrapped sausage into your freezer for approximately 2 hours. This will help firm up the outside (crust) of you sausage log and will make it easier to slice into approximately 1/2 inch patties.
And now you are ready to enjoy a very tasty sausage patty. Or place in a small freezer bag and freeze your patties for a week or two.
