Sausage Patties


  • ½ cup onion
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 teaspoons dried sage
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon white or brown sugar
  • 1/8 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
  • 1 pinch ground cloves
  • 1 teaspoon fresh thyme (finely chopped, can use dried)
  • 1 large egg yolk
  • 2 pounds lean ground pork


Cook onion in olive oil over moderately low heat. Stir occasionally until onions begin to soften and brown.

Cook for 8-10 minutes. Cool for another 8-10 minutes.

In a small bowl, combine sage, pepper (red and black), sugar, cloves, and thyme.

Place the egg yolk, pork and cooked onion in a large bowl and then add the spice mixture. Mix well.

Form into 16 patties (2 ounces each).

Pan-fry the patties in a large skillet over medium heat for 5 minutes each side. Make sure the internal temperature of the patties reach 160° F.
