Plan ahead the pork mixture must be refrigerated for 24-48 hours to blend the flavors together before making the patties. I usually get about 18-20 patties out of this, but the yield will vary depending on how large you make them --- you may adjust the amount of sugar but I recommend making the first batch using the stated amount, you might prefer it sweeter but for my family 1 tablespoon is just the perfect amount --- these are very good between biscuits :)

These could use more pepper, the flavor was bland for our taste. A good basic sausage, tweak it to suit your own tastes. We use 3 parts of pork cushion meat to one part pork fat, which is an excellent ratio, and grind them several times for a uniform texture.<br/>September 21, 2013: Had some from the freezer for breakfast today, found them to be much more flavorful after "aging", so came back to add a star to my rating. Will make this gain (but with some more pepper for me).
- 2 teaspoons dried sage

- 1⁄4 teaspoon dried marjoram
