Fresh Sage Handmade Sausage Patties!







Lovely Fresh Sage Handmade Sausage Patties made with Sage from my Garden! 

Wow! I have never had so much success with a plant as I have with a wonderful sage plant I have in my garden. I bought a small sage plant a few years ago from a garden center and now it is practically a shrub! I love to find new ways to feature this amazing herb in my cooking and this family recipe for handmade sausage fits the bill. 

This sausage is great for a family brunch, breakfast or even my favorite: breakfast for dinner! 

I have added rice to the mixture instead of bread crumbs and I have to say not only is it delicious,  I love the flavor. This is an especially good recipe because my son loves anything that is in patty or meatball form. These are great to make ahead for weekday breakfasts as well as they keep really well in the fridge. You can pull out 1-2 each morning. 

I hope that you enjoy this recipe soon with your family!
