2 teaspoons brown sugar 

2 teaspoons poultry seasoning 

1 teaspoon garlic powder 

1 teaspoon coarsely ground black pepper

1 pound ground pork 


  1. Preheat a cast-iron griddle pan over medium-high heat and spray with cooking spray.
  2. Mix together the brown sugar, poultry seasoning, garlic powder, pepper, salt and anise seed in a large bowl. Add the ground pork and mix gently until well-combined.
  3. Portion the sausage mixture using a heaping 1/4 cup measure and flatten each sausage into a 3-inch round, about 1/4-inch thick.
  4. Sear the sausages on the hot griddle pan until golden brown and cooked through, 3 to 5 minutes per side.
