Homemade Pork Sausage

(12 servings)

  • 3 pounds fresh pork shoulder
  • 1 small onion - sliced thinly
  • 4 garlic cloves
  • 6 Tablespoons milk
  • 2 teaspoons dried sage - crumbled
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 teaspoon dried savory - crumbled
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
Trim the fat from the pork and cut into 1 and 1/2-inch cubes. Place pork in the freezer for 30 minutes.

In a food processor, grind pork once by itself, then once more with the onion and garlic. In large bowl, mix the seasonings into pork mixture. Stir in milk. Cover and place in the refrigerator for an hour.

Form into 12 large patties. Cover and refrigerate. The sausage can be cooked immediately, but it's best to refrigerate for 12 hours to allow the flavors to intermingle.

Cook patties on a griddle or in a skillet at medium-high heat until browned and cooked through (about 5 to 7 minutes per side).

If patties are refrigerated, use them within two days. If frozen, use within the month.
