Colleen's notes for this recipe:
This old time recipe can be made as is or to your liking and tastes.

I have also, doubled the recipe and used 1/2 pork and 1/2 turkey and added extra spices.

This is easy and worth the effort.

Very Tasty!

In a large bowl or roast pan, put all ingredients in and mix together well with your hands.
Form into two logs about 3 inches in diameter. Wrap the logs in plastic wrap. Refrigerate 8 - 12 hours.

Remove the logs one at a time from the refrigerator. Slice Patties about a half inch thick. Place on baking sheet and freeze. When they are totally frozen, put them in zipper bags with wax paper between the layers.
When ready to use, thaw the desired amount out. Cook over medium heat in a skillet for 5 minutes then turn over and cook 4 more minutes. Drain on paper towels and serve hot.
