Macdonalds sausage patties

We happen to love the flavouring in McD sausage patties. I haven't made sausages in a long while but have just bought some good-looking pork mince and would like to make some patties like McDs. The kids love them too!

Per 450g I was thinking:
1 tsp salt
1 tsp white pepper
1/2 tsp ground nutmeg
1 tsp dried sage
1/2 tsp dried thyme

Many recipes online also suggest 1 tsp sugar. Wouldn't have occurred to me.

Can anyone comment or help if you know how to make it? I had it taped a few years ago but I have lost the recipe :(

Thanks :)

This might help from my profile. The recipe makes your spice, then you add it into your sausage/pattie mixture according to your meat/fat weight.

This will be much more than you require but you can reduce the amount accordingly and then used the spice mix with it in proportionate measures.

Thanks, Yummy, I'd forgotten the ginger. I think it's one tsp salt per 450g (1lb) from memory so use your mix pro-rata.

The Morrisons pork mince doesn't declare any additives though I have an idea that the law requires preservative so it doesn't need to be stated. Anyone know if that's true? Certainly much easier than mincing your own. This mince is very low in fat - less than 10% declared. Seems on the low side for nice sausages.

What are your views on bread/rusk? I've always added some to hold the fat (flavour).

Yes definitely needs some rusk in it to hold it together. In France we used natural breadcrumbs (in a box) NOT the yellow ones !! or a baguette, sliced and dried in the oven and then blitzed finely....and water, this will bulk up the breadcrumbs and amalgamate the sausage mix together. leave for a couple of hours so that the water swells the rusk/breadcrumbs before forming into your patties.

Thanks, Honey. It's all coming back to me now. Just a couple of dessertspoons of water, ISTR? We used dried rusk in Spain, no colour, worked well but I haven't seen it in the UK. I'll make some fresh, as you suggest.

It is "2ozs" (weighed) water to each 1oz of rusk you use, any less and the sausages will turn out dry. Please refer to the Home Made Sausage recipe on my profile for the exact quantity ratio.

I made a batch with the traditional sage mix and it isn't McD. I think it must be mostly rosemary, finely ground. Will try in a few weeks.

If it is Rosemary I'm surprised you didn't detect the taste straightaway, could it be nutmeg ? I used nutmeg in my Cumberland spice blend.

I've not really tried so hard before. My wife and I had a breakfast at McD the other day and I really concentrated. Yes, nutmeg too - I have always added nutmeg. Of the herb mix I suspect 80/20 rosemary/sage with nutmeg and a little white pepper. We'll give it a try before we roll into town on our spare tyres!

I looked on the Nutritional info for McD's and found this, but it just says spices and doesn't give a breakdown. http://www1.mcdonalds.ca/NutritionCalculator/IngredientFactsEN.pdf

Thanks, Yummy. Rosemary and sage are herbs rather than spices. I'll try it out.

I often make my own sausagemeat burgers, as well as adding porridge oats to the sausagemeat I throw in ground coriander, ground cumin and caraway seeds, some onion, maybe diced pepper. Don't really follow a recipe but they always taste nice.
