Make sausage patties by scooping 1 to 2 ounce portions into a wax paper lined baking sheet.** An ice cream scoop will help to make uniformed patties. Cover the scoops with a sheet of wax paper and flatten each with the back of a spatula.
Cook the sausage for 3 minutes or more on each side until done; the temperature should read 160 degrees.
*This can be done in the food processor by adding the remaining ingredients and pulsing until combined.
