Cheese sausages

A few weeks ago, I was talking to some folks at lunch and mentioned that I had a recipe for cheese sausages.  I meant to give it to them, but never wrote it up.  Since others might find it interesting…

For the record, I got the recipe from “Classic Home Cooking” which is a great cookbook, but since you can’t copyright facts (like instructions or a recipe), I think I’m pretty safe writing it up here.

Serves 4

Ingredients:

  1. 6 slices of bread
  2. 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  3. 1/2 cup crumbled feta
  4. 1/4 cup toasted walnuts
  5. 2 tbsp fresh sage
  6. 1 tbsp lemon zest
  7. 6 green onions
  8. 1 tsp ground mustard
  9. 2 eggs (1 separated)
  10. 1 tbsp milk
  11. flour

In a food processor (or by hand) chop walnuts, lemon zest, sage, green onions.  Add ground mustard.  Tear up the bread, toss it in the food processor and chop until you’ve got bread crumbs.

Mix bread mixture with cheese.  Beat one egg and one egg yolk, add to bread mixture with milk. Mix thoroughly.

Let sit for a half hour or so.  Form into eight patties.  Dip in egg white, then flour (fwiw, I usually skip the egg white and just flour them).  Fry in a few tablespoons of olive oil.
