Test Kitchen Tip

Chilling the sausage mixture makes it easier to slice into even patties.


Combine pork, brown sugar, garlic, sage, salt, fennel seeds, pepper flakes, and nutmeg.

Divide sausage mixture in half and shape each half into a log. Wrap logs in plastic and freeze until slightly firm, 20 minutes, or chill at least 1 hour or overnight.

Unwrap logs and slice into twelve patties, reshaping as necessary.

Fry sausages in a large nonstick skillet coated with nonstick spray over medium-high heat until cooked through, 57 minutes per side. Transfer sausages to a papertowel-lined plate.
