  1. Combine pork, molasses, salt, black pepper, sage, thyme, red pepper flakes, onion powder, parsley, nutmeg, fennel seeds, cayenne, and allspice in a large bowl; mix well by hand.
  2. Divide pork mixture into 16 portions; shape into patties 1/4-inch thick.
  3. Heat a nonstick skillet over medium heat; pan-fry patties, in batches, until golden and no longer pink in the center, about 5 minutes per side.


  • Cook's Notes:
  • Substitute sea salt for the kosher salt if preferred.
  • Instead of pan-frying, you can also bake these patties at 400 degrees F (200 degrees C) until centers are cooked through and no longer pink, about 15 minutes.
