Ingredients for Serrano Ham and Sausage Patties

For the patties:
3 large pork sausages, skins removed
½ apple, peeled and finely chopped
Fresh ground pepper
3 or 4 thin slices of Serrano ham

For the hash browns:
1 potato, peeled and grated
1 egg, beaten
3 tablespoons plain flour
Salt and pepper

How to make Serrano Ham and Sausage Patties

  • First make the hash browns by placing the grated potato in a bowl lined with a clean tea towel and squeeze out as much liquid as you can with the towel. Alternatively, pass the potato through a ricer to remove the liquid.
  • Then put the potato into another bowl with the egg and seasoned flour, mix well and make into 3 or 4 flat hash brown cakes.
  • Heat a little olive oil in a large frying pan and cook the hash browns for a few minutes each side until golden. Remove and place in the oven to keep warm.
  • Now make the patties. Mix the sausage meat with the apple and pepper, shape into three or four burgers and wrap each burger with a slice of Serrano ham.
  • Heat a little more oil in the frying pan and cook the burgers for about 5 minutes on each side until cooked through and golden.
  • Place the hash browns onto a plate with a slice of tomato on top, add the patties and serve with green salad.
