BJ Brinker's Home Cooking: Bacon Sausage

 I like this sausage the way it is, but if can add 1/2 teaspoon maple flavoring or 2 tablespoons maple syrup if you like maple flavored ice cream.  Easy to freeze.   Make the patties on place them on a cookie sheet (placing a sheet of parchment paper between layers).   Once frozen, place sausage patties into ziplock bag and seal.  Cook frozen over medium-low heat for about 5 minutes per side.


(makes 20)


*2 pounds ground pork

*2-3 slices uncooked bacon, chopped very small (I use kitchen scissors to cut it cup)

*1 tablespoon fresh sage leaves, chopped fine (or 1/2 tablespoon dried)

*2 teaspoons fresh thyme leaves, chopped (or 1/2 teaspoon dried)

*1 teaspoon fennel seeds, crushed (I put them in a plastic bag and gently smashed them with a meat mallet).

*1/4-1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes (optional)

*1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg 

*1 1/2 teaspoons sea salt

*1 teaspoon ground black pepper 

*1-2 tablespoon vegetable oil, for frying (optional)


~Place ground pork and bacon pieces into a large bowl.

~Mix sage, thyme, fennel seeds, red pepper flakes, nutmeg, sal and pepper into a small bowl.

~Sprinkle over meat mixture and mixed well.

~Using a 1/4 measuring cup, scoop out pork mixture.

~Roll into a ball, and then flatten into about a 2 1/2 inch patties.

~Heat vegetable oil into a large skillet over medium heat.

~Fry sausage patties about 2-3 minutes per side.
