Sausage & Radish Patties
Happy Monday guys! How was everyone's weekend? Ours was pretty laid back - we went to Andy's company picnic, which was interesting, but enjoyable. My youngest sister also had a birthday, so we had to pay her a visit, as well. Other than that, it was a lazy weekend just doing the bare minimum!
Do you ever get in one of those moods where you want more than one thing? Say like, 3 or 4? But can only pick one? You know, like say... you want a burger. Or some shrimp. Or maybe some breakfast? Yeah, I was in one of those moods this morning. So after a good long staring session with some radishes in need of some love... I decided to go off the deep end and throw a bunch of stuff together. The result? Well, let's just say these may stay on my breakfast/brunch rotation for quite some time!
1 lb. radishes, grated
about 5 medium shrimp, cooked and chopped finely
1/2 cup ground sausage
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1 tablespoon flour
salt and pepper, to taste
2 tablespoons olive oil
Hot Sauce, Ranch, & Dijon Mustard (optional)
In a medium bowl, combine radishes, shrimp, sausage, and cayenne pepper. Mix in flour and season mixture with salt and pepper. Add egg to combine everything together - it's okay if the mixture is a little wet.
Heat a large skillet under medium high heat and add olive oil. Drop about 3 evenly sized patties (about the size of the palm of your hand) into the skillet and cook until sausage is cooked through, about 5 minutes per side.
Serve with desired sauce - I did a three-way of hot sauce (personal fave), ranch, and Dijon mustard. All 3 were excellent!
And breakfast was served in less than 30 minutes! I was a little worried of whether all of this would come together nicely, but it did. They really just taste like some deluxe sausage patties, and would be perfect in between some slider buns too - another genius idea, maybe? But really, they're pretty tasty and full of layers of flavor!
Have you guys ever just thrown complete random ingredients together to make something amazing?
