Homemade Bratwurst Patties
- 3 lbs. ground pork
- 3 TB. BRATWURST SAUSAGE SEASONING
- 1/2 Cup minced onion (1 small onion) optional
- 3/4 Cups water
Place the pork, BRATWURST SAUSAGE SEASONING, and onion in a bowl. Add ¾ cup water. Mash with a hand potato masher or stir vigorously with a large fork for at least a minute. This will help hold the patties together during cooking. To make a consistent 4-5 oz. patty, place about 18" of plastic wrap on the counter and use a 1/2-cup ice cream scoop or measuring cup to scoop up some sausage. Pat gently into shape. To help prevent sticking on the grill, place the patties in a single layer on a cookie sheet and put them in the freezer for 20 or 30 minutes. You can also store them in the freezer individually wrapped. Pan-fry or grill the patties over medium heat until browned and cooked through, about ten minutes, 15 if they are more than a little frozen.
