Sausage Burgers

Have you ever made sausage burgers?  Mom used to make these and we would serve them up just like a hamburger on a bun.  She probably did this because pork sausage was cheaper than ground beef.  It's also a good way to stretch ingredients.  But, the result is a delicious supper.

SAUSAGE BURGERS

1 pound lean fresh pork, ground
1 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon black pepper
1/8 teaspoon ground sage
1/8 teaspoon thyme
1 egg, beaten

Mix all ingredients together and form into small patties.  Fry in skillet over medium heat until brown and they reach an internal temperature of 160 F.
