There is something empowering in making your own food, knowing what’s in it!
This recipe has become a family favourite. We can eat these at every meal and great for breakfast on the go and school lunches.
You can play with the spices to fine tune it to your liking but below is what my family likes.
When I make this recipe, I always double it and put 1/2 of the cooked sausage rounds in the freezer.
2 pounds of ground pork
2 tsp salt
2 tsp black pepper
1 1/2 tsp dried sage
1/2 tsp dried ground oregano
1/4 tsp dried savory
1/8 tsp ground ginger
Pinch of cloves
Pinch of cayenne pepper
1/4 cup cold water
2 tbs of olive oil
⚪️Using my hands, I get in there and knead and squeeze the mixture until it’s all well blended.
⚪️⚪️Once blended, I make about 2oz balls, flattened into sausage rounds.
⚪️⚪️Heat a large frying pan on medium to high heat with approx. 2 tbs of olive oil and pan fry both sides till cooked through. About 5-6 minutes each side. I like to cut one open to make sure it’s cooked. (No pink) *You can also make ground sausage and skip the whole making sausage rounds step.
