DIRECTIONS

  • In a medium bowl, combine pork, sage, brown sugar, ground fennel, 1 teaspoon salt, and 1 teaspoon black pepper. Gently mix until all ingredients are incorporated.
  • Form 4 patties, about 3 ounces each and 1/2-inches thick.
  • Preheat a cast iron skillet over medium-high heat. Add 1 tablespoon olive oil and swirl to coat. Add patties, in batches if necessary, so as not to overcrowd the pan. Cook until golden on the edges and cooked through, about 3 minutes per side. Repeat with remaining patties, adding additional olive oil if necessary between batches. Place slice of cheese on top of each patty during last minute of cooking.
  • Remove to a plate and serve on Portuguese muffins, with avocado, a fried egg, hot sauce, and a smear of your favorite condiment.
