Bottom of the Pan Patties

Bottom of the pan patties

I made these patties for my mom. She loves the crusty stuff that sticks to the bottom of the pans (meatloaf, roast chicken, roast beef, etc.) or as we call it, the “goop”. I made this recipe to sort of resemble that flavor. I made some of these up a few days ago and gave my husband a plate to take to work for the guys… The man who we bought the sausage from told my husband he has been around sausage for 40 years and never tasted something that good, that’s when I was sure this recipe was a keeper. =)

Bottom of the Pan Patties


1-1 1/4 pounds ground maple sausage, COOKED (I have used ground beef, and different types of sausage before too)
4 Slices of bread cut into cubes
2 eggs
2 Tbsp. Mayo
5 Spinach leaves rinsed and finely chopped
1/2 C. shredded cheddar cheese
1/4 C. bread crumbs
oil for frying


Skillet- set to medium-high heat.

After you have fried and browned your sausage dump it into a bowl and let it cool 5-10 minutes. Next add all of the above ingredients and mix well. Use hands to squeeze the mixture (like you would when making meatloaf), then form into patties. When making the patties you have to be a little rough when forming them. Gently place in an HOT skillet that has been drizzled with oil. Cooke till brown on both sides. You do not want to flip these too much before they are fully cooked or they will break apart, I usually lift one up with a spatula to see if they are ready to be flipped.
