Homemade Italian Sausage Patties - Great Taste, Low - Fat Italian Cooking
2 slices (1 ounce each) white sandwich bread
6 ounces skinless, boneless chicken breast, cut into small pieces
2 ounces lean ground pork
1 teaspoon fennel seeds, crushed
1/4 teaspoon dried sage
1 teaspoon grated orange zest
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1 egg white, beaten
3 ounces Italian bread, cut into 8 slices
1/2 cup jarred roasted red peppers, drained and cut into thing strips
Preheat the broiler. In a food processor or blender, process the sandwich bread until coarse crumbs form. Transfer the crumbs to a large bowl and set aside. Add the chicken to the processor and process until coarsely ground, about 30 seconds.
Add the chicken to the bread crumbs along with the pork, fennel seeds, sage, orange zest, salt, black pepper, and egg white, mixing thoroughly. Shape the mixture into 8 round, flat patties. Broil the sausage patties 6 inches from the heat, turning once, for 6 minutes, or until cooked through.
Broil the Italian bread slices for 30 seconds per side, until lightly toasted. Dividing evenly, spoon the roasted red peppers over the toast. Top each piece with a sausage patty and serve.
