Breakfast Sausages:


Breakfast Sausages: In large bowl, mix together pork, maple syrup, thyme, salt and pepper until well combined. Shape into four 4 1/2-inch wide patties (about 1/2 inch thick). Let rest for 5 minutes.

In large nonstick skillet, heat oil over medium heat; cook patties, flipping once, until no longer pink inside and instant-read thermometer inserted in patties reads 160°F, about 4 minutes. Wipe pan clean.

In same pan, heat oil over medium heat; crack eggs into pan and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Cook until whites are set but yolks are still slightly runny, about 3 minutes. 

Spread 1 tsp each mustard and mayonnaise (if using) onto bottom half of each English muffin; top with apple, Breakfast Sausages, eggs and microgreens. Sandwich with top halves of English muffins.

Test Kitchen Tip: Making your own sausage patties allows you to create your own flavour profile and control the freshness.
