Pair this with eggs and bacon, and you’ve got yourself a great breakfast! You can also make these ahead and freeze them for later.
- 1 slice bacon, thinly sliced
- 2 tbsp vegetable oil
- 1/2 small onion, finely chopped
- 3 cloves garlic, minced
- 2 tbsp plain dried bread crumbs
- 2 tsp brown sugar
- 3/4 tsp dried thyme
- 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
- salt and pepper
- 8 oz 72% lean ground pork
- 1 egg yolk
- 1 tbsp water
In a small saute pan, cook the bacon over medium heat until rendered, but not crispy, about 3 minutes.
Add 1 tbsp vegetable oil and onions, and cook until the onions are soft and begin to turn golden in color, about 3 more minutes.Add the garlic and cook an additional minute, or until fragrant. Remove the pan from the heat, and set aside.
In a medium bowl, use a fork to mix together the bread crumbs, brown sugar, thyme, peppers, and salt. Add the ground pork, egg yolk, bacon, and onion mixture to the bread crumbs, and gently mix with your hands until just combined. Be careful to not over mix!
Divide the mixture into 8 even portions and form into patties, pressing a small thumb indentation in the middle of each so they stay flat when they cook.
In a large saute pan, heat 1 tbsp oil over medium-high heat. Add sausage patties and brown on both sides, about 2 minutes per side. Add a tablespoon of water and cover the pan for 3 minutes, or until the sausage is fully cooked.
