  • 1 lb. ground pork
  • 1 lb. ground beef
  • 1 lb. ground veal
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 bunch scallions (green onions, white part & 2" green), minced
  • 1 lg. green bell pepper, cored, seeded & minced
  • 2 tsp. ground cumin
  • 1 tsp. dried thyme
  • 1 tsp. fennel seeds
  • Pinch ground nutmeg
  • Red pepper flakes, to taste
  • Salt, to taste
  • Unsalted butter for frying

Mix the pork, beef and veal thoroughly in a large mixing bowl. Add the garlic, scallions, green pepper, cumin, thyme, fennel, nutmeg and red pepper flakes and salt to taste. Mix thoroughly with your hands. Fry a small amount in a skillet until no longer pink.

Taste for seasonings and adjust in the meat mixture if necessary. Divide the meat mixture in half. Roll each half into a log 7 inches long and about 2 inches in diameter. Wrap the logs separately in plastic wrap and refrigerate at least 3 hours or up to 2 days.

Cut the sausage logs into 1/2 inch slices. Fry the patties in a little bit of butter until well browned on both sides. Serve with eggs, pancakes or French toast. Yield: 8-10 portions.
