Daybreak of Solar TV visited our Pasig branch this month and we indulged them by having Chef Niño Runas create a delicious breakfast for their viewers. Here’s the recipe:

Farmers Sausage

1 tbsp sage

1 tsp nutmeg

2 tbsp milk

2 tbsp bread crumbs

2 tbsp parsley (chopped)

1 tbsp brown sugar

1 tsp ground pepper

Mix everything in a bowl, chill before forming into patties. Make sure you chill the patties before frying. To fry heat a griddle pan or cast iron pan until smoking hot. Fry the sausages on both sides until golden brown, don’t forget to control the flame the sugar from the meat will burn the sausages very easy.
