Home Made Country Sausage Patties

20181024_172340These sausage patties were actually pretty simple to make, but they were not my favorite.  I started on these yesterday night.

First step is to mix all of the ingredients, except the ground pork, into a “paste.”  Mine wasn’t really so much a paste as a jumble of ingredients, but that’s okay.

Once everything is mixed into the meat, shape it into a ball, cover it, and put it in the fridge overnight.

The next morning, simply rip off chunks, shape into patties, and grill over the stove until cooked through.

The recipe also recommends cooking eggs in the patty grease afterward…do it!  You won’t be disappointed.

These were good, but definitely not the best sausage patties I’ve ever had.  And certainly not the best home made ones.  The fennel overtook all of the other flavors, so I think including more of the other spices would be a good idea.

Difficulty: Easy

Basically you just need to combine ingredients and then cook them over the stove.

Cost: Average

The biggest expense here is of course the meat.  Other potential costs include garlic, sage, thyme, rosemary, fennel, nutmeg, cloves, and brown sugar.

  1. Just tried this recipe myself. Noticed salt wasn’t in the recipe so I added some. I also used dried herbs instead of fresh at 1/3 the amount called for in the recipe.
    Sage, rosemary, and thyme are actually more flavorful when dried. They seemed to even out the fennel. They turned out really tasty.
