Country Sausage 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.
