Avoid lean or extra-lean ground pork; it makes the sausage dry, crumbly, and less flavorful. Avoid lean or extra-lean ground pork; it makes the sausage dry, crumbly, and less flavorful.
Number of Servings: 16


    2pounds ground pork
    1 garlic clove, minced
    1tablespoon maple syrup
    2teaspoons dried sage
    1/2teaspoon dried thyme
    1teaspoon salt
    1 1/2teaspoons pepper
    1/8teaspoon cayenne pepper
    2tablespoons unsalted butter


A greased 1/4-cup measure makes 16 uniform patties with a minimum of work and mess. Cover with plastic wrap, then use your palm to gently flatten each sausage patty.


1. MIX SAUSAGE Combine pork, garlic, syrup, sage, thyme, salt, pepper, and cayenne in large bowl. Gently mix with hands until well combined. Form mixture into 2 1/2-inch patties, about 1/2 inch thick. (You should have 16 patties.)

2. BROWN SAUSAGE Melt 1 tablespoon butter in large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Cook half of patties until well browned and cooked through, 3 to 5 minutes per side. Transfer to paper towel-lined plate and tent with foil. Wipe out skillet. Repeat with remaining butter and patties. Serve.

MAKE AHEAD: The raw sausage patties can be refrigerated, covered, for 1 day or frozen for up to 1 month. To cook frozen patties, proceed with step 2, cooking patties for 7 to 9 minutes per side.
