Sault Ste Marie Hot & Sweet Breakfast Sausage

Nick, my husband’s Canadian coworker, is rapidly becoming a favorite and preferred contributor to Sadie’s Nest. I’ve told you before about the great support I receive from my husband’s colleagues. It’s awesome. This is the second recipe Nick has passed along. (The first is a bread recipe which I have yet to post… Some of you know my mental angst with my bread making skills.) Not only did he give step-by-step instructions for the sausage, but he sent pictures! And btw, it’s really delicious. I love this simple spicy and sweet breakfast sausage, but not nearly as much as I love Nick’s description, “Enjoy with a loved one. Goes with anything: coffee, red wine, white wine, gin and tonic, beer, eggs, homefries, can also have for breakfast, lunch, supper, snack.” How can I beat that? Brilliant. Thank you Nick!

3.3 lbs (1.5 KG) hot italian sausage
1/4 cup Fennel
2/3 cup Maple Syrup
Remove sausage from wrapping. (I used a knife… Nick used scissors… Whatever works for you!)

Enjoy with a loved one. Goes with anything: coffee, red wine, white wine, gin and tonic, beer, eggs, homefries, can also have for breakfast, lunch, supper, snack… I enjoyed mine with a large slice of raw milk organic cheddar and a biscuit. It was stellar.

  1. Oh my goodness … these look delectable. Thank you Canadian Nick, thank you Sadie … I may be silent for quite a while whilst I settle my now aching need for these beauties!

  2. Thanks Sadie for letting us sample these. I had mine on an “everything bagel,” dad ate his with just a fork. We loved them, very good!!

  3. Big Nick from the Soo hit a home run with this baseball sized treat! It was really good! What I liked most was the preparation… It always tastes better when you need to work a little for it!

  4. Hi All, Nick here. Glad you all enjoyed, all the props go to my loving wife who was able to reverse engineer it from the inventor, Ernies Lunch in Sault Ste Marie Ontario. If you are ever up there you got to try to originals. It’s worth the drive. BTW, I was serious about the Beer, joking about the Gin and Tonic however, but it would work.
