Cherry Chipotle Sausage

image

Whole Foods has these great cherry chipotle sausages that I really enjoy.  Unfortunately their are two things wrong about them, one my husband says they are too spicy and two they have a few questionable ingredients in them that make me feel guilty every time I buy them. Does sausage really need canola oil and sugar? I think not!

Ingredients:

  • 1 lb ground pork
  • 1/4 tsp dried oregano
  • 1/4 tsp paprika
  • 1/4 tsp pepper
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp chipotle seasoning
  • 1 tsp dried parsley
  • 1/2 cup frozen cherries
  • 1 tsp olive oil

Directions:

Thaw your cherries by running them under some cold water and roughly chop.

Mix all of your dry ingredients together.

Grab your humanely raised pastured pork, mine comes from Yonder Way Farms.

Mix all ingredients together and form small patties. Add to cast iron skillet on medium heat and flip after about 4 minutes.  After another 4 minutes check internal temperature with a thermometer to insure pork is cooked thoroughly.

Enjoy!
