Since Molly was little, she's always been more of a sausage person than a bacon person. These are the perfect combo of salty and sweet with a hint of maple syrup!



Special equipment:
a 2-ounce ice cream scoop
  1. In a large bowl, add the ground pork. Using a spoon, spread out the meat to increase the surface area. Pour the maple syrup evenly over the meat, then sprinkle in the fennel, 1 1/4 teaspoons salt, dried thyme, black pepper, nutmeg and red pepper flakes. Use clean hands or a spoon to thoroughly combine, but not overmix.
  2. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  3. Using a 2-ounce ice cream scoop, scoop out portions of the sausage mixture onto the prepared baking sheet. Flatten them to form 3-inch patties that are about 1/2 inch thick. Season with salt.
  4. Heat a large nonstick pan over medium heat. Cook the sausage patties for 3 to 4 minutes per side until cooked through, golden brown and crispy. Remove to a wire rack to cool and drain of excess oil. Serve hot.
