Apple and Sausage Patties from STBMsReese-EAM
1 lb. bulk pork sausage
1 tart green apple, peeled, cored and grated
1/4 cup fine dried bread crumbs
2 Tbs. heavy cream
1 egg yolk
1/2 tsp. coarse salt
1/4 tsp. freshly ground pepper
Canola oil for cooking
In a bowl, combine the sausage, apple, bread crumbs, cream and egg yolk and stir until well blended. Stir in the salt and pepper. Divide the mixture into 12 equal portions and shape each portion into a patty 2 inches in diameter and 1/4 inch thick. Arrange the patties on a rimmed baking sheet or tray and refrigerate for 15 minutes, or cover tightly with plastic wrap and refrigerate overnight. Bring to room temperature before cooking.
Preheat an oven to 200ºF.
Place a large fry pan over medium-low heat and lightly brush it with canola oil. Place 4 of the patties in the pan and fry until browned on one side, about 3 minutes. Carefully flip the patties and fry until browned on the other side and cooked through, about 4 minutes more. Transfer the patties to an ovenproof dish and keep warm in the oven.
Cook the remaining patties in the same way, oiling the pan between batches. Keep warm until ready to serve. Arrange the patties on a serving platter and serve immediately. Serves 6.
