These county-style patties are so simple to prepare. You'll never again settle for store-bought versions that are loaded with preservatives and not nearly as good.

"A little too much sage, but it was ok. Next time I will use less sage and I think they will be amazing!"

"This was very simple but tasty. I need to alter the amount of spices as it was a little over-powering. The combination of spices was great though. I did add a little ground coriander as well, about 1/2 tsp. for a half batch. A great alternative and lower in sodium and other fillers than other sausage links or patties."
