Serves 4

  1. 1 pound ground pork
  2. 1 medium apple, shredded, with the juice squeezed out (about 1/4 cup)
  3. 1/4 cup minced onions
  4. 2 tablespoons Breakfast Sausage Blend (page 257)
  5. 1 to 2 fresh sage leaves, minced, plus additional whole leaves for garnish (optional)
  6. 2 teaspoons ghee or butter, for the pan
  1. In a mixing bowl, combine the pork, apple, onions, spice blend, and chopped sage and mix with your hands until everything is evenly incorporated. Form the mixture into 8 evenly sized patties.
  2. Heat the ghee in a large skillet over medium heat. When hot, place the patties in the pan and cook for 3 to 5 minutes per side, or until cooked through and browned.
  3. If desired, fry some sage leaves (about 1 per patty) in the pork fat left in the pan until crispy to garnish the sausage patties.
