Place all ingredients in a glass bowl and with your hands mix until all the seasonings are combined evenly amongst the meat.

Roll into approx. 8 balls (depending on the size you would like the sausage patties to be) then flatten to make into a patty shape.

Heat a medium sized fry pan on a medium heat.  Place the patties evenly spaced into the pan and cook approx. 5 minutes on each side, until browned and golden.

You can double the recipe quite easily but doubling the amounts.

You can also make a big batch and freeze the patties uncooked until required.  Make sure when freezing you lay the patties on a tray, cover with cling wrap and freeze before placing in a container or plastic bag.  This is so they won’t stick together, making it easier to take out the amount you need.

I love my sausage a bit spicy but if you prefer them a bit tamer don’t use the Tabasco.

Pork can easily overcook and dry out so keep an eye on the patties when cooking to make sure you don’t overcook them.

Looking good and browning nicely.
