Homemade Sausage Patties

Sausage and eggs - a real treat!

I’ve always been a sucker for sausage patties.  For as long as I can remember, they make truly wonderful breakfasts and pack a punch-load of flavor.  This is one reason why McDonald’s Sausage McMuffin and the now-defunct (in the Philippines, anyway) Sausage Biscuits rank high among my favorite brekkie treats.

Sausage patties, however, aren’t exactly common sights in the deli sections of local supermarkets and I haven’t seen them in most of the delicatessens I pop into.  It was a good thing I was able to discover a very good recipe for them that I can whip up whenever I need something special to start my day.

Raw sausage mixture. 

Homemade Sausage Patties

  • 1/4 kilo ground pork

  • 1/2 teaspoon fine [iodized] salt

  • 2 teaspoons rubbed or whole dried sage

  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme

  • 1 teaspoon ground black pepper

  • oil for frying

Set the oil aside.  With your hands, mix all the ingredients together to form a paste.  Press the paste onto a plate and divide into eight segments.  Pick up one segment, roll into a ball, and flatten between your palms.  Repeat with the remaining segments.

Heat the oil in a skillet and fry the sausage patties, 3 – 4 minutes on each side or until nicely browned.  Drain on paper towels and move to a serving dish.  Makes 8 patties.

Oh, and one other thing…

Homemade biscuits, too!

Homemade sausage goes best with eggs (like the cheese omelette pictured with the patties on top of this post) and homemade biscuits.  Don’t fight it.

  3. Or you could just use sausage meat in a pack and shape it and cook it in the oven, I think that is how McDonalds make it :L
