Success - request sent close

1 cup fine, fresh white bread crumbs

2 teaspoons kosher salt (see note)

teaspoons fresh ground black pepper

1 teaspoon dried sage, crumbled


teaspoon dried marjoram, crumbled


teaspoon dried thyme, crumbled


teaspoon ground nutmeg


cup cold water (bottled, preferred)

Add all ingredients to a large mixing bowl and with clean hands gently knead the mixture until the seasonings are well combined, but do not over-handle. Cover and chill for 30 minutes. Form into 2-ounce patties (you'll get about 22).

Using wax paper or foil, wrap sausages that won't be used right away, separating the patties with a layer of paper or foil, and then place into a plastic freezer bag. Remove as much air from the bag as possible, seal and freeze for up to six months.

To cook: Place a nonstick skillet over medium to medium-high heat and lightly spray with vegetable oil. Add patties, but do not crowd, and cook about 4 minutes or until lightly browned. Turn patties over and cook 4 minutes, or until their internal temperature reaches 160 degrees on an instant-read digital thermometer. Serve immediately.

Makes 22 patties.

Cook's note: I prefer Diamond Crystal salt, reduce amount to 11/2 teaspoons if using Morton's.
