Irish Breakfast Dippers
This breakfast was inspired by Homemade Sausages with Apple Sauce (pg. 117) of Irish Traditional Cooking by Darina Allen.
  • 1½ lb ground pork
  • 1 tsp minced garlic
  • 1 TBSP parsley
  • 1 tsp rosemary
  • 1 tsp chives
  • 1 tsp thyme
  • salt
  • pepper
  • olive oil
  • Applesauce - Use my homemade canned applesauce
  1. In a skillet warm olive oil on low heat.
  2. While the oil is warming, in a large bowl break up the ground pork into small pieces.
  3. Add the minced garlic and the rest of the dry ingredients (spices.)
  4. Use your hands to mix all the ingredients until well blended.
  5. Gather some pork mixture in the palm of your hand and roll your hands together to form a link.
  6. Continue this process with the entire batch of pork and place them in the pan as you finish.
  7. Continue cooking the pork on medium-low heat when pan is filled.
  8. Cover.
  9. Flip links every 1-2 minutes.
  10. Continue cooking until links are a golden brown. About 10 minutes total.
  11. If you need to make sure they are done, feel free to slice one in half.
  12. Pair your sausage with a little bowl of applesauce when serving.
  13. Happy Dipping!
