Author Notes: And today's stove-top meal is...Breakfast Sausage - it's what's for dinner (well, tonight, anyways.) I recently bought a jar of juniper berries in hopes of using them in something fabulous (homemade gin, anyone?) Had a pound of Berkshire pork in the freezer, and a hankerin' for some sausage, so....this is the result.mrslarkin

Makes eight 2-ounce patties

  • 1 pound ground pork
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 2 - 3 sprigs fresh thyme, leaves stripped
  • 20 coriander seeds
  • 1/4 teaspoon anise seeds
  • 12 juniper berries
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • fresh cracked black pepper
  1. In a spice grinder or mortar and pestle, grind the garlic, thyme, coriander seeds, anise seeds and juniper berries.
  2. Combine pork with salt, pepper and spices.
  3. Chill for 1 hour.
  4. Form pork into eight 2-ounce patties. In a non-stick pan, saute sausage patties over medium-low heat until nicely brown, about 5 minutes per side.
  5. Serve with some smashed taters, hash browns, or my Spinach and Potato Tortilla. Grits would be nice, too. Or make a kick-ass biscuit sangwidge with some scrambled egg and cheese.
