We had some ground pork left over, and I thought it would be fun to try to make sausage patties to go with breakfast.
I’m not a big fan of sausage usually, because a lot of them incorporate caraway or fennel seeds, and I don’t really like those too much.
So this was a great way to use spices that we like, and make something without a bunch of nitrates in it.
Make sure you add enough salt if you want it to taste sausage-y. Otherwise it’s a little bit like a pork meatball.
Dino made some omelets with cheese and some tomatoes from our garden and toasted up some wheat bread to go with this sausage. It was a really nice way to start the day.
Homemade breakfast sausage patties, flavored with spices from your pantry, are quick and easy to make at home.
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 8 ounces ground pork
- 1 clove garlic, minced
- 1/2 teaspoon dried marjoram
- 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
- 1/2 teaspoon dried parsley
- 1/2 teaspoon ground paprika
- 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
- 1/4 teaspoon dried savory
- 1/8 teaspoon red pepper flakes
- 1/8 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
- Heat oil in a nonstick skillet over medium-high heat.
- In a medium bowl, mix together remaining ingredients with your hands, being careful not to overmix.
- Form into patties, and fry in the hot oil, flipping to ensure both sides cook through.
If your sausage patties aren’t cooking through, cover the skillet with a lid and lower the heat a bit until they’re fully cooked.
