They are very easy to make and so flavorful. I was a bit concerned with adding two full onions to two pounds of pork sausage, but it was delicious.
Rosemary-Mustard Sausage Patties that I made.
2 medium onions, finely chopped
4 teaspoons olive oil
2 teaspoons minced fresh rosemary or 3/4 teaspoon dried rosemary, crushed (I used about 4 teaspoons of fresh rosemary)
4 teaspoons stone-ground mustard (I used a spicy brown mustard)
1/2 teaspoon pepper
2 pounds bulk pork sausage
In a large skillet, saute onions in oil until tender. Add rosemary; cook 1 minute longer. Transfer to a large bowl; stir in mustard and pepper. Crumble sausage over mixture; mix well. Shape mixture by 1/4 cupfuls into thin patties. (Note: I made mine much smaller - about half that size so there were about 32 sausage patties.)
Place in ungreased 15-in. x 10-in. x 1-in. baking pans. Bake at 375° for 12-15 minutes or until meat is no longer pink. Drain if necessary on paper towels. Yield: 16 sausage patties.
