Ingredients (4)

  • 1 1/2 pounds pork breakfast sausage links
  • 1/4 cup freshly squeezed orange juice
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons finely grated orange zest (from 1/2 orange)


This dish is a take on one of my favorite family recipes, with breakfast sausages replacing fresh kielbasa. The sweet-savory maple coating pairs equally well with pancakes, waffles, or French toast.
