Joy of making Sausage!

I have been playing around making various types of Sausage. Here is a good basic recipe for making sausage with the flavors of Spain. You can use TURKEY, PORK OR A COMBINATION.

1/4 medium Spanish onion, minced
2 crushed garlic cloves
1/2 teas. rubbed sage
1/4 teas savory
1/2 teas marjoram
1 t red pepper flakes
1/2 teas  cracked black pepper
1 teas salt
2 T Olive oil
2 T dark sherry (Optional, use a good dark sherry, not an inexpensive cooking sherry)
1 lb Pork ground meat (or Turkey or a combination of both)

In a saute pan add oil, add garlic and cook 1 minute, remove garlic, add onion and saute until translucent. Discard the hot oil. Remove the cooked onion with a slotted spoon.  Add cooled onion to a large mixing bowl. Add all the rest of the ingredients and mix with your hands in a bowl. Shape into 2 - 3 inch patties, making an indentation in the middle of each pattie, makes 10 - 12 patties.

To cook, heat a saute pan and add four patties, cook until just brown and crust forms on one side and turn over to cook on other side. Serve with Huevos Rancheros or a Fresh Baked Frittata.

Options:  Add smoked paprika to taste (about 1/2 Tablespoon)
