10 sausage patties


  • 1 pound ground pork

  • 1 teaspoon rubbed sage

  • 1 teaspoon salt

  • 1 teaspoon crushed red pepper

  • ½ teaspoon ground marjoram

  • ½ teaspoon ground black pepper

  • ½ teaspoon onion powder

  • ¼ teaspoon dried thyme leaves

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil


  1. Combine ground pork, sage, salt, crushed red pepper, marjoram, black pepper, onion powder, and thyme leaves in a large bowl; mix until evenly combined. Form mixture into 10 small patties.

  2. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Working in batches, cook patties for 3 minutes. Flip and cook 3 minutes more or until juices run clear. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 160 degrees F (73 degrees C). Transfer patties to a paper towel-lined plate to absorb any excess grease.
