Discovered this one after an experiment with the wonder that is sausage meat. It’s so easy and tastes just like proper bonfire night burgers.
Recipe makes 5-8 Burgers
You will need:
- 8 Pork Sausages (I use frozen)
- Burger Buns
- 2 Cloves of Garlic (Finely chopped) OR 1 Tbsp of Garlic Powder
- 1 Tbsp Mixed Herbs
- 1 Tbsp Chilli Powder
- Some Cooking Oil (I use vegetable oil)
- (Optional) Sliced cheese to top the burgers.
- If you’re using frozen sausages, boil the kettle and stick them in a mixing bowl with boiling water on top to defrost them. Once you can bend them, they’re ok.
- Empty the mixing bowl of water and let the sausages cool for a few minutes so you don’t burn your hands.
- Unravel the ends of the sausages, then tear the skin away from the meat and throw away the skin, keeping the meat in the mixing bowl. Repeat for all 8 sausages.
- Once you’ve skinned all your sausages, roll up your sleeves and mash the meat together.
- Add the garlic, herbs and chilli powder to the meaty mixture and mash some more to combine it. You can also add salt and pepper to taste at this point.
- Take your trusty frying pan and add some oil to it. Set it to medium-high.
- Shape the meat mixture into patties. The mixture should be sticky and easily shapeable but you can add some plain flour to help it combine. Be careful not to add too much flour if you do or it’ll make the burgers taste really bland. I usually go for about half an inch or 1.5cm thick.
- Transfer them to the pan 1 or 2 at a time and fry for 3 minutes or so on each side until golden brown.
- House those lovely patties in their new bun homes, layer on the cheese and enjoy with your preferred sauce. Have Fun!
