Step 1

Preheat a griddle pan to medium-high.

Combine pork with wine, fennel, garlic, onion, sage, 1 teaspoon black pepper, 1 teaspoon salt and EVOO. Mix with your hands to combine then form 8 small, thin patties. Cook patties 3-4 minutes on each side then keep warm in a low oven. Reduce heat under pan to medium for the French toast.

Whisk up eggs, remaining salt and pepper, a little nutmeg, and the grated cheese in a dish. Coat bread slices in the egg batter and cook on the griddle in a little melted butter until golden and cooked through.

Serve cheese toast with sausage patties alongside, drizzled with warm honey.
