I’ve got to start by telling you that had I listened to my husbands initial reaction to this recipe, it never would have made it onto this website.

His initial response was that the stuffing mix was completely over powering.

He was also quick to point out that anyone how LOVED stuffing, would like this.



But for himself, who LIKES stuffing, but doesn’t LOVE stuffing, it’s a bit much.

Oddly, my views were on the opposite side of the scale.

I used to hate stuffing but in my adult years have started to like it.



But I in no way LOVE stuffing.

And yet I really liked this Maple Sausage Breakfast Braid.

Is the stuffing flavor noticeable?  Yes.



But so is the maple flavor and the sweetness of the apples.

I felt it all worked quite well together.

However, since we were not united on whether or not this was website worthy, I cut it up into appetizer sized squares and took it to my team of taste testers.



It sounds crazy but I really do have a team of people who I deem as my taste testers and so far, they love their job.

These taste testers just happen to be a good portion of the staff at my daughters elementary school.



They know that Wednesday is taste testing day.

Every Wednesday after school, my daughter has piano lessons with her music teacher.

And while she is practicing the piano, the staff and I are digging into the latest experiments.



The staff never knows what to expect and I tend to mix up the food items with those already on my website and recipe experiments.

Some weeks I leave with a plate still full of cookies or a pan full of bars, and other weeks I listen to them all claim dibs on the extras.



These are all clear indicators as to whether or not a recipe was a stud or a dud.

So several weeks ago, I took them this Maple Sausage Breakfast Braid.

Not only did I go home with an empty pan, but for the next several days, I had various staff members tell me how much they liked this recipe.



This was exactly what I was looking for.

Confirmation as to whether it was website worthy.

I got a solid clear answer that the stuffing flavor was not over powering but just right and that the drizzle of maple syrup on top was exactly what it needed.



I’ve also been asked a few times when I was going to finally put the recipe up on the website.

And so, without further adieu, here is the recipe for Maple Sausage Breakfast Braid.

A fabulous {and fairly easy} recipe that has stuffing lovers excited and wanting more!

Yield: 8 Servings - 2 Braids

Maple Sausage Breakfast Braid

Prep Time 25 minutes
Cook Time 30 minutes
Inactive Time 5 minutes
Total Time 1 hour


  • 1 pound package of maple pork sausage
  • 1/4 cup real maple syrup + extra for topping
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/4 cup sliced green onions
  • 1 1/2 cups herb stuffing mix - dry, not cook. Make sure to get bread crumbs AND seasoning too!
  • 2 large granny smith apples, diced
  • 1 (17 ounce) package Puff Pastry sheets, thawed


Preheat oven to 400*F
In a large bowl combine sausage, syrup, eggs, green onions, stuffing mix and apples. Mix well with spatula and or hands and set aside. I find hands work great for this!
Roll out each pastry sheet to a 16 x 12 inch rectangle on a baking mat, parchment paper or nonstick foil.
Place half of the sausage mixture down the center of one of the pastry sheets.
Fold up each end of pastry sheet to cover edges at each end of sausage.
Slice 1 inch slits down both sides of pastry then fold up strips on top of sausage, alternating sides like a braid.
Transfer braid to a cookie sheet.
Repeat the above steps for second pastry sheet and braid.
Bake for 30 - 40 minutes or until golden brown.
Remove from oven and allow to sit for 5 minutes before cutting into slices.
Drizzle with additional maple syrup and enjoy!
