Sage and clementine zest really make this sausage! Super easy recipe to make the best sausage patties in your life! I hope you give these a try.
Freshly ground sausage patties with no artificial ingredients like some of those store bought ones. Homemade sausage patties are perfect for anytime!
This recipe is for about 3 lbs of pork shoulder.
Mix all the spices and herbs together. Cube up the pork shoulder and mix in the seasoning mixture. Place the pork on a baking sheet and put in freezer for 20-30 minutes to firm up just a little.
Feed the pork into a meat grinder, alternating fatty and not so fatty pieces. I used the small setting on the grinder.
I recommend frying a couple patties up right away to taste for seasoning. They might taste a little under seasoned but - remember that the real test is after it sits in the fridge for 24 hours!
The bonus recipe - A sausage sandwich cooked on the Kettle-Q. Bread toasted on one side with 2 fried eggs, 2 slices of 3 pepper jack cheese and 2 homemade sausage patties.
Chopped Fresh Herbs - Pineapple Sage and Thyme - regular sage will work just as well
