Country Sausage Patties

Yield 8 servings (serving size: 2 patties)
Country sausage patties require some fat to stay moist, which is why Boston butt is a good cut of pork for this recipe. The sausage is best when the mixture is made a day ahead and refrigerated, allowing the spices to permeate the meat overnight. You can, however, cook the patties right away.

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 pounds boneless Boston butt pork roast, trimmed and cut into 1-inch cubes
  • 1/4 cup cold water
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon dark brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon minced fresh or 1/4 teaspoon dried rubbed sage
  • 1 teaspoon minced fresh or 1/4 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1 teaspoon crushed red pepper
  • 1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground coriander
  • 1/2 teaspoon hot pepper sauce (such as Tabasco)
  • 1/4 teaspoon grated whole nutmeg
  • Cooking spray
