I really liked these! The first sausage I used was just some generic stuff from the grocery store……… and the cakes were ok……but I knew these could be great! So, I went to the market and got some Sicilian orange fennel sausages from the Turkey Lady, and it was a big difference! Slightly sweet, hearty and unique, these would be great with pancakes and syrup or in a salad like I had for lunch. Yum.
I did change up one thing; I made half of the cakes with cooked, mashed sweet potatoes and half with shredded raw sweet potatoes. I think I liked the mashed better, but both were good. Oh, and follow the directions to use a cold skillet….it helps the potatoes and sausage cook fully. Eat up!
