Texan Sausage Hamburgers

Friday again and the fast food challenge continues. Tonight we are doing hamburgers.

I discovered these breakfast sausages when we lived in Texas, they make a great change to our usual beef burgers and certainly feel like a lighter option.

They are very adaptable, I happily swap them between burger buns and corn tortillas for the gluten free option. They also work well as a stuffing in sausage rolls and as part of a breakfast taco.

The sausage meat can be frozen uncooked.

Traditionally bacon is not included but you need quite fatty minced pork, around 20%, so, when the minced pork has been too lean in the past I have added minced bacon, I think it adds another element to the sausage meat.

Ingredients

1kg minced pork

500g minced bacon

1 tablespoon dried oregano

1 tablespoon dried sage

1 teaspoon dried thyme

1/2 teaspoon cayenne powder

1 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon black pepper, ground

Method

In a large bowl combine all the ingredients.

Shape into patties.

Heat a non stick frying pan over a medium heat.

These do not require oil in the pan.

Cook the patties for 4mins then flip and repeat on the other side.

Ensure that up the meat is fully cooked before serving.
