Italian-Spiced 50/50 Sausages
Prep time: 
Cook time: 
Total time: 
Serves: 8-10 patties
  • 1 pound grass-fed ground beef
  • 1 pound pastured ground pork
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh oregano
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh thyme
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh parsley (optional)
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  • ½ teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 tablespoon solid cooking fat (coconut oil, lard, tallow, or duck fat)
  1. Place the ground beef, pork, herbs, garlic powder and salt in a large bowl and combine well with your hands. Form into 8-10 patties and place on a plate.
  2. Heat the solid cooking fat in the bottom of a cast-iron skillet or frying pan on medium heat. When the fat is melted and the pan is hot, add patties, cook 10 minutes a side, or until thoroughly cooked. You may have to do this in two batches. Alternately, you can bake them at 400 degrees for 20 minutes or until they are cooked throughout.
Variation: Feel free to switch up the protein in these--you can make them 100% beef or pork, or add some lamb into the mix!
