I thought this was a very simple recipe to put together. I served with eggs and toast one sunday morning. While I enjoyed the sausage, I kept thinking of burgers and really think this would be great on a bun with cheese and ketchup, sort of like a sausage burger. Maybe with a little more seasoning added, it would be more of what I think of for sausage. Overall, DH and I both thought these were good.

Made great little breakfast patties for our Egg Sandwiches. Quick and Easy to make. I put everything in the food processor and was good to go in minutes. I wish I could have tasted more of the Grand Marnier in the recipe (but, I am sure that is just me! :) ) Good Luck Chef!

I picked this RSC recipe to try for a specific reason. Altho grd pork is easily found here, sausage is not. I miss it and freq crave a breakfast of biscuits, sausage gravy and grits true to my southern US roots. I struggled w/this review and the low rating, but it was truly the best I could do for your recipe. It was made exactly as written and had no taste at all except for the very strange and out of place Grand Mariner. The ingredients are simple and the prep a snap, but IMHO the recipe suffers from the use of Grand Mariner and lacks all the spicing that would truly give the desired flavour - like salt, sage, cilantro and Tobasco (or chili powder). Thx for sharing your effort w/us, but I will keep looking for my sausage fix in other places.
