Recipe - Pork Sausage Burgers
I love sausages but unfortunately most sausages here are not Whole30 compliant and to be honest I find it very difficult to find a good quality sausage without any fillers such as rusk or horrible additives.
I thought about them and then decided that given they are just made from minced/ground pork why not just make my own?
So obviously I don't own a fancy smanchy sausage making machine and I was not inclined to get all technical with sausage skins, so I decided to just make them into burger shapes. Still the lovely flavour but with less cooking time.
These are really easy but very delicious. It should make roughly 10 small burgers and are ideal for batch cooking and keeping for during the week or freezing for another day.
400g ground/minced pork
1tbsp coconut oil (for frying)
1 egg (beaten)
1tbsp dried sage
1 tbsp fresh chopped parsley
2tsp dried mixed herbs
Salt/Pepper to taste
Fresh lemon juice (optional)
Preheat the pan on a medium heat.
Mix pork and dry ingredients together until well mixed.
Add beaten egg and incorporate. Mixture will be quite moist, this is good as the frying will dry out slightly.
Form into small, fairly thin burgers.
Melt coconut oil in pan.
Fry burgers in small batches turning as little as possible.
Place on some kitchen paper to drain.
Serve with an optional squeeze of lemon.
Really really good. You might want to eat them all!!
