What You'll Need

  • 1 pound lean ground pork
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon fresh ground black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground thyme
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried rubbed sage
  • 1 teaspoon light or dark brown sugar, packed
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground allspice
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/8 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1/8 teaspoon red pepper flakes, optional

How to Make It

In a bowl, combine all ingredients and mix with your hands until well blended.

Shape into eight 2-ounce patties. Pan fry the patties, turning to brown both sides, for about 8 to 10 minutes, or until the internal temperature is at least 160° on a food thermometer.

Makes 8 sausage patties. The recipe is easily doubled, and the sausages freeze well.
