Total Time:


1 3/4 pound ground pork (not lean)
1 small onion, grated and squeezed dry
4 cloves garlic, finely grated
2 tablespoons minced fresh sage
1 tablespoon minced fresh thyme
3 tablespoons pure maple syrup
1 tablespoon paprika
1/2 teaspoon ground allspice
1/2 teaspoon ground coriander
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil


Mix the pork, onion, garlic, sage, thyme, syrup, paprika, allspice, coriander, cayenne, 2 1/2 teaspoons salt and 1/2 teaspoon black pepper with your hands. Form into 18 patties, 2 inches wide and 1/2 inch thick; put on a foil-lined baking sheet, cover and chill overnight.

The next day, preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Heat 1 tablespoon olive oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Cook half of the patties, turning once, until golden, about 5 minutes. Transfer to a baking sheet. Wipe out the skillet. Repeat with the remaining 1 tablespoon oil and patties, then transfer the patties to the oven to finish cooking, 5 to 10 minutes.
