Prep Time: 10 min
Cook Time: 20 min
Total Time: 30 min
Serves: 10 patties

Ingredients

1 pound organic ground pork (or your favorite ground meat)
Cremini Mushrooms, about 2 cups whole (3/4 cup finely chopped and roasted*)
½ tsp olive oil for roasting mushrooms
Handful of fresh spinach, very finely chopped
½ tsp fine grain sea salt
½ tsp onion powder
¼ tsp garlic powder**
⅛-1/4 tsp crushed red pepper (depending on level of spice preferred)
½ tsp fennel seeds
1 tsp Italian seasoning blend
1-2 tsp olive oil or other cooking fat for frying the patties

Instructions

1. First, roast your mushrooms whole.
2. Preheat your oven to 400 degrees. Toss the mushrooms with the ½ tsp olive oil and spread out evenly on a foil lined baking sheet, then roast for about 1015 minutes until softened and fragrant. Allow to cool prior to chopping.
3. Once mushrooms have cooled enough, chop them to a fine consistency similar to that of your ground meat.
4. In a large bowl, combine the ground pork, roasted chopped mushrooms, chopped spinach, salt, and all the spices and mix well.
5. Form the mixture into about 10 small patties. Heat a large heavy skillet to med/medhi heat and add your cooking fat to ensure the patties won’t stick while cooking.
6. Cook the patties (in batches if you need to) 34 minutes on each side, or until cooked through with a golden brown exterior. You can either serve right away, or allow to cool and then freeze for later use. Enjoy!
