 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    1       lb           Lean ground pork
      1/4   c            Cracker crumbs
      1/4   c            Water
    1       t            Sage
    1       t            Salt
      1/2   ts           Thyme
      1/2   ts           Oregano
      1/4   ts           Freshly ground pepper
    1       pn           Ground cloves
 
   The two step cooking procedure ensures the removal of most of the fat.
   
   Combine ground pork and cracker crumbs.  Stir in water, sage, salt, thyme,
   oregano, pepper and cloves.  Mix until thoroughly combined.
   
   Divide into 12 portions.  Form each into a sausage-shaped roll or flat
   patty.  (Wet hands with cold water to make the job easy.)  Place in a cold,
   lightly oiled frypan.
   
   Cook over medium heat, turning often, about 4 min each side until just
   beginning to brown and pieces are no longer pink.
   
   Remove to paper towels and blot to absorb any fat.  Wrap.  Store in
   refrigerator up to 5 days or in freezer up to 2 months.  Or cook a second
   time and serve immediately.
   
   To serve:  Return sausages or patties to a clean, cold frypan.  Cook over
   medium heat, turning once or twice, about 4 min until sausages are brown
   and crisp.  (Cook frozen sausages in the same manner, allowing about 2 min
   longer for cooking.

   Suggestion for Pork Pies: Stir-cook the ground pork mixture in the frying
   pan, place it in a plastic colander to drain off most of the fat and blot
   with paper towels.  Spread the pork mixture in a baking dish (try 8
   pyrex), add fat-free gravy if needed for liquid. Top with about 2 1/4 cups
   seasoned breadcrumbs.  Bake at 350-375 F until crumbs are lightly browned.
