Black Eyed Pea Sausage

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by ColCadsMom

My grandmother in Alabama made these years ago as an inexpensive subsitute for pork sausage. My Mom still makes these for me. There was never a real recipe, so the last time she made them, she measured her ingredients as best she could to come up with this. OK, so they don't REALLY taste like sausage, but the sage does give them a hint of sausage flavor. I like these with biscuits but also like them as stand alone snacks or with a plate of veggies and corn bread. This can be made with leftover peas or canned peas.

I don't know what went wrong. I drained the peas well, but even after adding 1/2 cup of flour, it was still too wet to even start shaping a patty. I guess I could have dropped them into hot fat and possibly fried them as fritters. I could not get the mixture to stiffen up. I finally gave up and tossed it because the mixture just tasted like wet flour. Any advice?
