Homemade sausage patties
A healthier alternative to meatballs, and full of protein when you serve them with scrambled eggs
- Line a large baking sheet with foil or parchment paper.
- In a large bowl, mix together the pork, garlic, sage, thyme, nutmeg, salt (if using) and black pepper. Mix well, then stir in the egg until well combined.
- Cover the bowl with cling film and leave the mixture in the fridge to chill for 30 minutes.
- Carefully shape the meat mixture into 8 equal-sized patties, and place on the prepared baking sheet. Chill the patties in the fridge for 15 minutes.
- Heat the butter or oil in a large, non-stick frying pan over a medium heat. Fry the sausage patties for 3-4 minutes on each side until cooked through and golden brown. Serve straight away with the scrambled eggs.
What you need:
- 500g ground pork
- 2 garlic cloves, finely chopped
- 1 tbsp dried sage
- ½ tbsp dried thyme
- Pinch of ground nutmeg
- ½ tsp each salt (optional) and black pepper
- 1 medium free-range egg
- Butter or cooking spray, for frying
- Scrambled eggs, to serve
