Homemade Italian Sausage Patties

We like  Italian Sausage so I tried making myself and we really like it. This is delcious for any time of the day, not only for breakfast.
For the sandwich I used -
  • Crusty buns, toasted or plain or gluten free
  • Eggs, poached or fried 
  • grainy or dijon mustard
  • guacamole, I used half the recipe and made it finer
  • Italian sausage patties
For the Sausage you need-
  • 2 lbs of lean ground pork or 1 lb ground pork and 1 lb ground Turkey.
  • 1  teaspoon of toasted fennel seed
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon of red pepper chili flakes (more if you want it spicier)
  • 1 large garlic clove, finely minced
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 tablespoon of red wine or red wine vinegar (optional)
  1. Toast the fennel seeds in a dry frying pan for a few minutes on medium high heat until you can begine to smell the fragrance. 
  2. Combine the meat with the spices and wine if you are using it. Mix well until everything is well combined. 
  3. Shape into desired shape and brown in a hot skillet for 3-4 minutes per side.
