Serves: 8 patties
1 pound ground pork
½ red apple, diced
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon onion powder
1 teaspoon paprika
1 teaspoon fine sea salt
½ teaspoon ground sage
½ teaspoon dried rosemary
¼ teaspoon black pepper
3 tablespoons butter, ghee, or coconut oil
Place all the ingredients except the butter in a large bowl and mix until well combined.
Divide the sausage mixture into 8 patties and flatten them between your hands.
In a large cast-iron skillet over low heat, melt the butter.
Add 3 or 4 patties to the pan and cook for 5 to 6 minutes per side, until golden brown and cooked through.
Keeping the heat on low will help cook the inside of the patties without burning the outside.
