"I made this for my family for "breakfast for supper" with biscuits and gravy, and everyone really liked it! I substituted 1 lb. of ground turkey for the pork and halved the other measurements, and it worked fine. I used Italian Seasoning in place of the savory and in place of the marjoram. I left out the cayenne pepper since we prefer our sausage a bit on the mild side. Everyone went back for seconds."

"These patties were moist; however, I thought they were bland tasting. My store does not sell savory so I used extra sage per a substitution chart in a cookbook. Also, my store sells sausage in one pound packages. I didn't want to make such a huge recipe since it was just me and with the original recipe calling for 2 1/2 pounds it wasn't easy converting amounts of ingredients."
